Campus Operations Manager
Lodge Park Academy, Corby • £28k

The David Ross Education Trust is a major national education provider, with 14 of our 34 schools located in Northamptonshire. Lodge Park Academy in Corby is a complex, fast-moving and multi-faceted operation providing a world-class education, and we’re looking for someone to oversee the full range of non-teaching activity across our campus.

It’s a constantly stimulating and rewarding professional challenge. You’ll be responsible for a range of teams delivering vital functions such as administration, site services, IT and finance, ensuring that the whole operation runs smoothly and with a minimum of disruption. There’s no such thing as a typical day – you could start by reviewing management accounts due to be submitted to head office, then organise a room letting to a community group, or lead a meeting with one of our key suppliers, before moving on to renew the paperwork for our minibus fleet. Clearly some issues will be outside your direct control, and you’ll know when to escalate those up to our Regional Operations Manager; but the mark of your success will be that this is the exception, not the rule.

Strong candidates will have extensive operations / project management experience, ideally within a comparable setting, and a relevant qualification in business or finance will be an advantage. Calm, detail-focused and exceptionally organised, you’ll thrive in an environment where you’re constantly encountering a stream of different calls on your time and attention, and managing them deftly and effectively. The ability to build excellent relationships with colleagues across the Academy, including senior leaders and teaching staff, is essential. You’ll be responsible for keeping accurate and clear records, drafting concise reports, and providing management information that continually improves the operation of the campus; so we are looking for a track record of making a demonstrable difference in your previous roles.
