Located on the stunning Jurassic Coast and with the East Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty close by, Exmouth Community College is one of the largest secondary schools in the country with over 2300 students.
The College is seeking an outstanding, inspirational and dynamic leader to take on the role of Finance Director. This offers a unique opportunity for an ambitious, creative and enthusiastic individual to lead a dedicated team of staff committed to get the very best education for our students within the context of the whole College vision.
The College is at a very exciting time in its development and you will be joining a growing Senior Leadership Team who are exceptionally ambitious for both the students within Exmouth and the College as a whole.
As a member of the Senior Leadership Team, the post holder will contribute to the overall development of the College’s strategic direction and lead on the provision of a wide range of support activities. The role offers the opportunity to work across a range of areas and alongside other key staff within the College.
This role presents an excellent opportunity to have a large impact on the development of both students and the College as a whole. The College will shortly begin work on a £13 million new build on the Key Stage 3 campus which includes 13 classrooms, two ICT rooms, a theatre to seat 450, three Drama studios, library resource centre, activity studio, six design technology rooms and five science laboratories. This work will start in the Summer with a completion date of Easter 2022. In addition, we are expecting further growth and work will shortly start on phase 2 of a new £3 million Mathematics block. Finally, after several years of financial containment the College had a small surplus last year and we are now entering a period where finances will allow for some additional investment to assist our students.
