We have an exciting opportunity for a new Assistant Business Manager to play a key role within our growing and flourishing new school.

Ideally, you will possess budget management experience, the ability to gather, analyse and evaluate data to produce reports and also have relevant experience of working within a school as well as HR experience. If you share our core belief in a growth mindset; if you thrive in a ‘no excuses’ culture, and in an environment that is focused on improvement and reflection, then we would be delighted to hear from you.

In return, as a new and growing school, we can offer you the potential to develop professionally and personally and be integral to the school’s continued growth, progress and success and really make this role your own. Also, being part of United Learning, one of the leading school groups in the country, we can offer you unrivalled career development opportunities and support to ensure you achieve your ambitions.
