Maria Fidelis Catholic School FCJ is a successful comprehensive situated between Euston and Kings Cross/St. Pancras stations in the London Borough of Camden in central London.  

We are looking for a talented, experienced and enthusiastic professional to take the lead role in the business management of the school and to be an active member of the Senior Leadership Team.

Previous experience of people management, financial management, property maintenance and health and safety is essential, as are excellent organisational and inter-personal skills. 

In 2018-19 we merged our separate lower and upper schools into a brand new state of the art school on a single site between Euston and Kings Cross Stations.  Our new building is fantastic – with fully equipped spaces for teaching and learning, new technology and systems to support 21st century learning.

Our current Business Manager has flourished in our school and has really supported us through this transitionary period.  We are sad to lose her to a promotion but we are excited about welcoming a new leader into our team.  We now have new systems and structures in place and are ready for the next phase of our development. We are looking for a leader who understands the many facets of school business leadership and who can continue to drive forward improvements and develop our premises and administration teams as we grow and build on our success.

Our vision is that FCJ schools are communities of personal academic excellence.  Strong in companionship, the unique giftedness of every person is recognised, nourished and celebrated. Our hope and expectation is that each young person grows into their best self, with zest for life and the generosity and confidence to use their talents and gifts in the service of others. 

We believe we provide a truly special experience for our students and staff – not only of academic excellence but also an environment that is caring, supportive and focused on the uniqueness of every person. 

Please see attached our Job Pack which includes a letter from Helen Gill (Headteacher), full details of the role, a job description and a person specification.

For a confidential and informal conversation to discuss this opportunity please contact Sarah Ewins (current SBM) or Chrissy Cordara (deputy SBM) on 02039608151.
