The establishment of the post of Executive Head of Shared Services is an important step in the development of the Greenshaw Learning Trust (GLT).
The Greenshaw Learning Trust is a successful multi academy trust with seven primary schools and eight secondary schools in South London, Berkshire, Bristol, Gloucestershire and South Gloucestershire, and approval to open a new secondary school and secondary special school. Having grown significantly over the last three years we currently employ 1,500 people and educate 10,000 students and are planning to grow further over the coming months and years.
Our schools and the Trust’s strategic development are supported and overseen by a relatively small but growing, highly skilled and effective shared service team, based in a central office in Sutton and in our three regions.
The Executive Head of Shared Services will be responsible for the Trust’s shared support services, currently delivered by around 40 staff in five teams; they will be line managed by the GLT Director of Resources and will work closely with the Trust senior leadership and school Headteachers.
The post holder will be based in Sutton, South London, but may be required to travel to any GLT school in South London, Berkshire, Gloucestershire or South Gloucestershire.
