Start date: September 2019
Contract type: Full Time
Salary: Competitive
Contract term: Permanent

As Head of Careers, you will be an enthusiastic career practitioner with experience supporting pupils to progress to University, Apprenticeships and beyond while furthering their own career management skills at school.

To succeed in this role, you will be highly-organised, good with people (pupils, parents, teaching and non-teaching staff and outside agencies), an effective communicator and confident public speaker with the drive and enthusiasm to create a forward-thinking careers programme at Latymer Upper School. Our aim is to deliver a high quality programme of career-related learning, in line with the national statutory Gatsby Benchmarks, so that every pupil in the school engages with career learning each year. 

In addition to providing well-informed advice and guidance, a key aim of the careers department is to continue to grow and develop our exciting and engaged alumni and parent network to provide mentorship, work experience and to coordinate networking events. You will be keen to develop this offering with the support of our careers co-ordinator and the wider school community including our Foundation Office and Partnerships team.

A coaching philosophy is at the heart of professional practice at Latymer Upper School. An advisor who aspires to be informative yet non-directional will be particularly effective in this role.

This is an exciting time for the Latymer Careers Department and you will be given both the freedom and support to build on the success of our established careers programme. The role requires the energy to manage the existing provision, and to implement your own well-informed ideas with the long-term vision to bring this to fruition.

To apply, find out more about the school, the department and our attractive staff benefits package, please visit our website and view the section “Join our Team”.

Closing date: 9.00am on Monday, 22 July 2019.

Interviews will be held on Friday, 26 July 2019.

The School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people. All posts are subject to an enhanced DBS check and receipt of two satisfactory references.
