An exciting opportunity has arisen for a School Business Manager to work in the thriving and successful St Philips and Combe Down primary schools in Bath. Both over-subscribed schools belong to the Palladian Academy Trust, a small local trust which is passionate about providing opportunities for its pupils and staff. This is an exciting time to join the developing trust and to further your own career in education. You will be joining a lively community of schools which offers professional development and a supportive work environment as well as a generous local government pension scheme.
Working at both school sites, the core purpose of this key role includes managing and developing each school’s financial systems and records, supporting HR systems and managing office functions. You will have overall line management responsibility for school premises and support staff, and will manage the school site. You will be a member of the school’s leadership team and the Trust’s business group, working closely with the PAT Chief Operating Officer.

If the idea of this role excites you and you have the right qualifications and experience we look forward to receiving your application. The role can be either term time only + 15 days holiday working + all INSET days, or all year round, to suit applicants.
