King’s College London Mathematics School (KCLMS) is for highly motivated students aged 16-19 with a particular aptitude and enthusiasm for mathematics.
The school is seeking to appoint a Business Manager to lead the school’s non-teaching functions, including being responsible for the school’s administrative, premises and financial procedures and systems, ensuring that all legal and safety requirements relating to people and property are met. This will include administrating the resources budget, maintaining financial systems, supporting bids for additional funding, and oversight of human resource and facility management issues. The Business Manager, along with the Head Teacher will be responsible for ensuring that the schools is both solvent and operating in line with the highest standards of financial probity.
The Business Manager will work as part of the extended Senior Leadership Team to ensure that the school's operations are conducted both efficiently and at an outstanding level of quality. The Business Manager will also have reporting responsibilities to the Finance and General Purposes Committee of the Governing Body, and will line manage the Administration Manager, who is in turn supported by two apprentices, one who focuses on business administration and the other on student administration.
King’s College London Mathematics School is a single academy trust, and the Business Manager will hold the duties of the Principal Finance Officer as set out in the Academies Financial Handbook. The nature of the post is equally influenced by the size of the school, which implies a small team and few tiers of responsibility. In addition to holding the significant responsibilities of the Principal Finance Officer, the Business Manager will therefore also conduct most of the school’s day-to-day administrative financial activities.
This post may be of particular interest to candidates who have a background in financial and operations management, looking to move into the education sector, or candidates already in the sector, who are looking to take on increased responsibility as the Business Manager of a school.
The school is committed to the continued professional development of the School Business Manager. We will support a successful candidate towards gaining professional qualifications such as the ILM Diplomas in school business leadership (level 4 or level 5).

Closing date for applications: 9am on Monday 26 April.
Interviews will be held in the week commencing 4 May.
