What skills and experience we're looking for

Looe Community Academy is looking to recruit a talented and enthusiastic professional for the post of School Operations Manager to fulfil a current vacancy. The successful candidates will work alongside Senior Leaders, including the Local Governing Committee, to ensure the optimum learning environment is available for both students and staff which will in turn support the school to deliver high quality teaching and learning. Although we are initially recruiting for a post at Looe Community Academy it is anticipated further posts will be available at SMART’s other secondary schools (in Saltash and Liskeard) in the near future.

This role will suit someone with previous experience of working in an operationally demanding role and knowledge of an educational setting would be an advantage. It is essential to have good planning and people management skills and the post will particularly appeal to people who thrive on the buzz of unpredictable daily challenges in a busy school community.

What the school offers its staff

SMART is a Multi Academy Trust comprising three primary schools, three secondary schools and two nurseries serving the needs of learners of all ages across South East Cornwall.

SMART operates collaboratively so liaison with other schools within the Trust, including travel to other sites is a feature of the role.
