Interim School Business Manager

£55000 to £60000 per annum

Croydon, Greater London

Farrer Barnes Ltd

My client is a South London secondary school, looking to recruit an interim School Business Manager to join the school from January 2023.

The successful candidate will work closely with the Head Teacher and Governors as a key part of the school's Senior Leadership Team.

The successful individual will be responsible for providing professional leadership and management of school support staff, to enhance their effectiveness in order to achieve improved standards of learning and achievement in the school. The School Business Manager promotes the highest standards of business ethos within the administrative function of the school and strategically ensures the most effective use of resources in support of the school’s learning objectives. Acting as a key strategic partner to the SLT forms a key part of the role. Responsibilities will chiefly lie within Finance, but will work closely with the support teams in Administration, IT, Human Resources, Premises and Health and Safety.

Applications are sought from candidates with previous schools or broader education sector experience, within a similar finance or school business management role.

Pre Christmas online interviews available.  This role is expected to run until the summer 2023, but could well develop into a permanent position beforehand if desired.
