Principal's PA

Crown Hills Community CollegeLeicester

Dear prospective applicant,

I could write a huge amount about the changes that we have made to CHCC and the journey that we are going on and that we are now in the top 12% of school nationally for progress.

However, this post is about more than that and is not about the school, although your role within it is going to be very important. This role is working closely with me personally to ensure that the entire school community runs smoothly.

I am a very straightforward person; what you see is what you get and I am looking for someone that is the same. I try my best to lead by example using a set of clearly defined values and principles that then in turn influence my decisions as a leader.

You need to be able to align with the values of Trust, Fairness, Honesty, Integrity and Support, as you will represent me in my absence through telephone calls, online meetings and in person:

I also need you to be smart, hungry and humble.

Smart enough to think outside of the box, hungry to make a difference and humble enough to know that you still have plenty to learn and will seek advice.

Like every position in the world of work, there will be elements that you have to learn and understand; this is where the hunger comes in, especially If you do not come from the world of education but you need to be willing and able to learn and if you are from within education, you need to understand our school and our systems.

You will be exposed to so many different types of people; from parents, to councillors, to staff, MP’s and the wider community but you will make a difference to the lives our children through your organisation, forward thinking and ability to grasp things quickly. 

You need to have the emotional intelligence to deal with sensitive matters with clarity as well as communicating with those around you to improve delivery. We have 200 staff and 1500 students, so your ability to work with different groups of people in a dynamic environment is paramount and a key part of the role.

Our mission is simple, we want every student to be the best that they can be, thrive in the best possible career and contribute positively to society.

You will see from our site that our three key values permeate all that we do and have allowed us to grow from strength to strength:

Aspiration  - Be the best you can be

Commitment  - Do what it takes for as long as it takes

Success   - Be ready to take on the world

As Principal, it has always been my philosophy to grow and nurture new talent so that we create the next generation of leaders, it is something that I have done throughout my career, and this role will support the successful individual on their journey.

If you want to work for a “boss” who is caring, considerate and supportive, we would love to hear from you.

Alternatively, If you would like to discuss the role in confidence, please contact me on 07394821098

We are looking for the role to start as soon as possible so that there is a sufficient handover with the current post holder.

We have arranged a virtual Information Evening on Tuesday 14th September, please email my PA, Jo Amey if you would like to attend. 

Deadline for applicants is 9am on Friday 17th September 2021 to

Interviews are scheduled to be held during week beginning 20th September 2021. 

Yours sincerely, 

Mr F Adam
