Located in the beautiful market town of Stamford, the Endowed Schools offer an outstanding education for over 1,650 pupils at the co-educational Stamford Junior School for pupils aged 2-11, Stamford High School for girls aged 11-18, and Stamford School for boys aged 11-18. These Schools work within a highly successful diamond structure.

The Principal and Governors are seeking to appoint a dynamic, committed and business-minded Director of Operations to provide inspirational leadership to the business support team and to ensure the successful management of the day-to-day operations of the Schools which are located on three sites in the town.

Reporting to the Principal, the Director of Operations is a critical member of the Senior Executive Team which consists of the Principal and Heads of each School. He/she also acts as Clerk to the Governors. The role holder will be expected to manage the commercial and business aspects of the Schools and establish highly effective, collaborative relationships with Governors and colleagues at all levels.

The successful candidate will be an individual of proven leadership ability, a strategic thinker and able to turn vision into reality in partnership with the Senior Executive Team and Governors. Financial literacy and robust commercial judgement will be essential. 

This is an exciting opportunity for an experienced and inspiring individual, who will be working with talented senior leaders, a committed staff, and supportive Governors who are ambitious for these confident and successful Schools. Previous experience in the education sector is desirable but not essential.

The post is available from February 2019, but the actual start date is flexible for the successful candidate. 

The importance of the post is recognised in a very attractive remuneration package.
