Head of Careers

Up to £35k.

An exciting opportunity has arisen for a qualified and experienced careers professional to devise, deliver and quality assure a full and varied programme of careers information and guidance for our students. This will ensure that they understand the full range of learning, academic and vocational routes available to them to support decisions about future careers and courses.

In this role, you would need to co-ordinate the contributions of various staff in different departments (both teaching and non-teaching) whose roles relate to the delivery of the school’s careers programme and to advise the senior leadership team on policy, strategy and resources for careers information and guidance.

We are therefore looking for someone with excellent interpersonal and communication skills with a flair for devising programmes which deliver demonstrable results and a track record of working successfully with a diverse range of stakeholders together with high-level ICT and analytical skills.

In return, we can offer a competitive salary, friendly working environment, private healthcare scheme, a generous holiday and pension scheme, free lunches (in term time) and ongoing training and development opportunities.

The post will initially be 37.5 hours per week, all year round as the successful candidate will use the first year to develop the role and create a long-term plan.

For an informal discussion please contact Karen Sallows, HR Manager directly on 01234 332656.
