The Executive Business Manager role is an exciting opportunity to establish, lead and deliver a high quality and efficient business support service across two United Learning schools in east London.
United Learning is a large and growing group of schools which aims to provide a life changing education to children and young people. The group has schools across England and a focus on building geographical clusters of schools that can work with and support each other. The East London Secondary Cluster is currently made up of two schools: Walthamstow Academy (secondary) and Goresbrook School (all-through).
United Learning schools work as a team and achieve more by sharing than any single school could on their own. Our subject specialists, our Group-wide intranet, our own curriculum and our online learning portal all help us share knowledge and resource, helping to simplify work processes and manage workloads for an improved work-life balance.
We are looking for a highly experienced, strategic and customer focused individual who will be able to set up and lead the formation of the current cluster between the two schools (with the potential that this may expand over time). You will work with autonomy to lead a number of business services across the schools as well as being responsible for managing the relationship with United Learning central teams, to ensure that these functions provide value added support and advice to the schools in the cluster in a timely and professional way.
You will have experience in leading and coordinating the delivery of business support services in one or more schools, or a similarly complex environment. In addition, you will be familiar with strategic planning and decision-making, professional relationship management, negotiating and influencing at Senior Leadership, Governing Body and Board level, and the effective and efficient management of all resources.
This is a challenging and diverse role offering the opportunity to shape the development of business support to our secondary and all-through school in east London, leading and developing teams of skilled and qualified business support staff and making a tangible impact on the lives of young people. In return, you will receive first-class development, a dynamic working environment and a range of employee benefits including 6 weeks’ holiday, access to private healthcare, Local Government Pension scheme and a competitive salary.
This is a school-based role with an expectation that you will divide your time between the two schools in the Cluster with travel to other schools or offices within the group expected on an occasional basis. Your application should explain your suitability for the role described above and in the job description and should be tailored to meet the Person Specification in terms of your knowledge, skills, and qualifications.
