  • Headteacher, Fulford School and CEO designate, South York MAT

    York

    Recently named State Secondary School of the Year for the North of England, Fulford School’s sustained success speaks for itself. Our consistent high achievement is a product of motivated, curious pupils; engaged and supportive parents; and an exceptional staff team. It’s a great and rewarding place to teach, learn, and lead.

    As the founding school of the South York MAT (SYMAT), Fulford also plays a key role in York’s educational ecosystem. Longstanding, mutual partnerships with the schools in our MAT have enabled us to build a truly ambitious multi-academy structure. Moreover, all our schools (as well as those intending to join) have been rated either Good or better by Ofsted. So, the foundations couldn’t be sounder.

    This makes the role of Headteacher and CEO designate all the more attractive. There are few better opportunities to join an organisation that’s already performing extremely strongly, but which also has the self-awareness to know where it can improve, and the hunger to make it happen.

    We’ve created this role specifically to enable the successful candidate to establish a really solid position within Fulford School and with partners across the SYMAT before you assume the additional duties of CEO. It’s tailor-made for an experienced individual with substantial experience as a Headteacher, Associate Headteacher or well-established Deputy Headteacher with whole-school responsibility and a strong track record.

    An outstanding classroom practitioner, able to model and lead improvement in teaching and learning, we would also look for significant strengths in curriculum and school improvement, including performance management. A clear and positive educational philosophy, demonstrable success as a teacher and school leader, and the capacity to take on the complexities of working at system level will all be essential.

    Closing date: 28 January 2019.

  • Recruitment Project Executive - NavigateNDC

    Macclesfield

    Northern Design Collective was established in January 2003, focusing on providing well-crafted, high-quality recruitment and attraction campaigns for top-level vacancies, principally in the public and third sectors. Over the past decade, we have established an excellent reputation for quality and delivery, and many of our clients have gone on to commission other communications projects, reports, consultancy and professional support. We recently joined forces with Navigate Resourcing, an extremely well-respected recruiter specialising in education leadership. The new company – Navigate NDC – thus provides permanent and interim leadership for schools, multi-academy trusts and other education bodies, as well as professional recruitment support services to our longstanding client base.

    This growth creates an excellent opportunity for an astute, ambitious Recruitment Project Executive, supporting colleagues in all three main areas of the business. You’ll be responsible for the effective delivery of recruitment and marketing projects, with an emphasis on high standards of client / candidate care and excellent attention to detail. This will involve co-ordinating media campaigns, managing the production of a range of communication materials (both print and online), and working closely with clients at each stage to review and approve materials and their associated costs. You’ll also play a supporting role at key milestones within permanent and temporary recruitment assignments.

    You’ll be expected to manage and co-ordinate multiple assignments and resources, within a deadline-driven working environment, so excellent project management skills are essential. Some recent experience within a recruitment agency or team would be a distinct advantage. Commercially aware, with a keen eye for profit and loss, you’ll play a vital frontline role in ensuring that projects are delivered within budget. As an ambassador for the Navigate NDC brand, so you must be able to build strong, confident, relationships with clients, candidates and suppliers. Excellent customer care is central to this role, and you’ll be working within a fast-paced organisation where expectations are high; so you’ll be expected to take accountability for ensuring a high-quality experience for clients and candidates.
