It is essential that you have previous leadership experience at a Senior Executive level, preferably gained in a Christian school.

As members of the Senior Executive, you will be responsible for implementing the Vision and Mission of the school, across the school, and for showing Godly leadership not only to staff, but to the whole school community by the way you relate to students and parents.

You will be required to provide strong support and close collaboration with the Principal, deputising for them when necessary. Together you will move the School’s Strategic Plan from paper to practice within the school community, ensuring direction and focus to the school’s longer-term objectives.

As the educational operations manager, you will provide strategic leadership and management, particularly through your direct supervision of the Heads of School (HoS). You will also have oversight of, and will liaise closely with, other senior staff. You are expected to instill trust, confidence and cohesion across all staff teams as you look to ensure smooth, positive and efficient day-to-day functioning of the school.

Working with the Director of Teaching and Learning (DoTaL) and HoS, you will administer and oversee NAPLAN assessments and the annual HSC. You will take responsibility for compliance with NESA registration and accreditation in relation to the educational programs of the school. You will also ensure adherence to specific oversight of educational compliance and risk management.

Working in collaboration with the Business Manager you will have ICT oversight as it relates to educational programs. You will also work with the Principal and Business Manager to develop and ensure adherence to the annual educational operations budget.

With support from the HR Manager, you will have oversight of staff HR matters, making determinations with fairness and accuracy.

In your responsibility to students, you will ensure a culture exists across Prep to Year-12 that encourages students to flourish in accordance with the school’s vision and mission. Working with the Director of Student Wellbeing (DoSW) and HoS, you will also oversee student discipline and wellbeing systems of the school.

In your responsibility to parents, you will oversee a strong set of Parent Partnership programs to support our community, in close consultation with the HoS.

It is expected that you will consult widely regarding best practice, liaising with other schools, leading task forces, attending and presenting workshops at conferences, and will be an active CEN member, contributing to the wider community of Christian Educators in this area.
