St Christopher’s School wishes to recruit a School Business Manager with duties ideally to commence in September 2017, or as soon thereafter as possible.

  • Do you want to be part of a hard-working, highly professional team?  
  • Do you like sunshine, a high standard of living and a lifestyle that offers a wide range of opportunities? 
  • Would you like a good tax free salary, free furnished housing, medical insurance, annual travel allowances, baggage allowance and free high-quality education for any children of your own?
  • Sound like you? Then apply now to join our excellent and dedicated team at St Christopher’s.

St Christopher’s is a highly successful school with a world-wide reputation for excellence. The School has 2300+ students (from ages three to 18) and nearly 400 employees and is a not-for-profit institution. It is expected that the new SBM will take the major role in managing the non-educational side of the school’s operations, reporting directly to the Principal. 

The successful candidate will have an accounting qualification and knowledge to allow him or her to oversee the work of the Financial Controller and accounts staff, as well as wider experience in managing a range of areas drawn from HR, facilities, managing building projects, sponsorship and other operational matters. Experience in a school environment will be a strength as will qualifications in an area of management other than accounting.  SBM qualifications are particularly welcome. 

INFANT & JUNIOR SCHOOLS (3-11 years) NOR 1180 / 6 form entry

SENIOR SCHOOL (11-18 years) NOR 1110 / 8 form entry 

Further information

The current Principal of St Christopher’s School, Ed Goodwin OBE, has announced that he will leave the school, after 23 years, at the close of the 2017-18 school year. The new School Business Manager will work with Ed Goodwin over the year and will immediately assume prime responsibility for the financial aspects of managing the school, which are currently handled by the Principal.  This will be a major focus of the first year, but, in addition, the SBM will also manage other areas according to his or her specific knowledge and strengths. 

In other areas that may be new, or relatively so, to the SBM, the Principal will retain a supervisory role, but will work alongside the SBM to mentor him or her, so that the SBM can take on the full role in the following year, under a newly appointed Principal.

An indicative Position Description is available. This will form the basis for deciding which duties will be assigned the first year and which will wait until the following year.

Benefits

We offer a highly competitive tax free salary package currently well in excess of UK rates, free furnished housing, medical insurance, annual travel allowance, baggage allowance and free high-quality education for any children of your own.

Minimum Candidate Requirements

  • Degree Educated
  • Formal accountancy qualification – AAT / Part qualified CIMA / ACCA / CPA 

How to apply

Applications should consist of a supporting letter of no more than 2 A4 sides, addressed to the Principal Mr Ed Goodwin, a current CV with recent photograph, and the online Application Form duly completed.

Closing Date:  22 June 2017

We reserve the right to appoint before the closing date.

Only shortlisted candidates will be contacted.

St Christopher's School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people in our care. We follow safe recruitment practices and appointments are subject to vetting including reference checks, identity and criminal record checks.
