We are looking for an exceptional colleague to take on the newly created post of SCHOOL BUSINESS MANAGER. Our school opened in September 2013 and now has over 420 pupils spread across five kindergartens and classes 1-10 (Y2-Y11) and 80+ employees. We will reach our full capacity of 624 children by 2021.

Our school operates with a Principal and Vice Principal (VP) working within and via the School Leadership Team (SLT). The SLT includes other key staff members with mainly pedagogical responsibilities. The School Business Manager will join this team and represent all non-educational operations and issues.

The successful candidate will have excellent finance and HR management experience and strong interpersonal skills, with a proven track record in the management of a complex and demanding organisation.

You will be able to show clear evidence of strategic leadership skills. Such experience would have been gained either as a School Business Manager or as a Senior Manager in a comparable organisation and/or the commercial or charitable sectors. A qualification in school business management is highly desirable (NASBM CSBM, DSBM or ADSM).

You will join our team as we continue to grow and embrace the opportunities of delivering Steiner education in the state-funded sector, to families and children who would never have access to private, parent-funded Steiner education.

You will be part of a vibrant and committed team of staff, joining us in our PURPOSE BUILT school set in BEAUTIFUL GROUNDS on the edge of Exeter.
