Job Title (including Volunteers) Education Projects Manager (full time, two year fixed term contract)
Salary Up to £35 - £40,000 per annum (dependent on skills and experience)
The Schools of King Edward VI in Birmingham ("the Foundation") is one of the most significant educational charities in this country. King Edward's School was founded in 1552 by Edward VI and since then it has played a key role in the history of the city. In the late 19th century it created five grammar schools and King Edward VI High School for Girls. Now in the 21st century, The Foundation runs eleven schools - two independent fee-paying schools, six selective academies and three non-selective academies.
The King Edward VI Academy Trust Birmingham ("the Academy Trust") was established in 2017 and is made up of the nine academies outlined above. The nine academies receive back-office central support services, including finance, from the Foundation Office. The Foundation Office is the Foundation's central support services function, with several staff being seconded from the Foundation to deliver support services to the Academy Trust and the academies themselves.
As part of the newly established Educational Support & Growth department, the Education Projects Manager will take responsibility for two key areas of work. You will lead on bringing new schools into the Academy Trust and manage the collation and analysis of education data to be reported to Trustees. In addition, you will have the opportunity to tackle a range of other education projects depending on the needs of our schools.
The role will be an exciting challenge for someone seeking to use their project management skills in an educational context. If you are detail focussed, highly organised, and enjoy problem solving, then this could be the role for you. You may have experience managing academy conversions in a MAT, or you may come from another context altogether, but you will have an aptitude for organising complex information, analysing data and building excellent relationships with stakeholders.
The Schools of King Edward VI in Birmingham is an educational charity and is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. Applicants will be required to undergo child protection screening appropriate to the post, including checks with past employers and the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS).
This post is covered by Part 7 of the Immigration Act (2016) and therefore the ability to speak fluent and spoken English is an essential requirement for this role.
Closing Date: 9am on 15 May 2020
