We need a dynamic and dedicated Director of Finance and Operations to provide strong financial and operational leadership for our highly successful school, and to maximise commercial opportunities as we move into in the next, exciting phase of our strategic development. Candidates must have a strong business acumen, expertise in finance, experience of working with high-performing teams and a clear understanding of how to run highly efficient support services in support of an organisation’s mission. Prior experience of working in a school environment is not essential but candidates must possess a precise, analytical and agile mind, creativity, strong interpersonal skills, plenty of drive and energy, and commitment to the ethos and aims of the school.
Lymm High School is an 11-18 school with nearly 2000 students (380 in the 6th form) and exceptional resources, including 28 acres of beautiful grounds, a swimming pool, leisure complex and our own residential centre in Anglesey. A very good and well-established school already, we have made rapid progress in recent years and have no intention of resting on our laurels. The potential here is huge.
Depending upon the skills and experience of the successful candidate, there are opportunities for flexible working in terms of hours/days of work and the potential for some remote working. This could include holidays that align with school holidays.
Please see the linked documents and our website for further details. Ordinarily, we would offer the chance to visit the school but obviously that is not possible in the current circumstances. However, if you cannot find the information you need to help you decide whether we are the kind of school you would be happy working in, please do let us know and we would be happy to arrange phone calls or a ‘virtual’ meeting. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any queries.
This school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this legal requirement.
