Summer School Director / Venue and Facilities Hire Manager

St Edmund’s Summer School has been welcoming international students each July and August for over 20 years. As the Summer School hosts children from over 40 countries, it plays a crucial role in maintaining and developing the College's international presence as well as reputation for delivering world-class residential educational programmes.

Required for as soon as possible

We are looking to appoint a new Summer School Director who will assume leading responsibility for all aspects of the Summer School’s planning, coordination and operation. This is a complex and multi-faceted role requiring a wide range of skills, including human resources, finance, promotions, programme design, staff recruitment and Summer School student enrolment. The successful applicant will find the position to be extremely rewarding and varied, with ample opportunities for professional experience and development.

Whilst we are proud to be England’s oldest Catholic school, we welcome applications from all colleagues who wish to be part of our ethos.

Whilst not in a teaching role, as a Summer School Director you will be working on a regular basis in a school in a role which gives opportunity for contact with children.  As such, you will be in regulated activity and an enhanced DBS check (which includes children’s barred list information) will be required in advance of appointment.

Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children is everyone’s responsibility.  As with all College staff members, you will therefore be responsible for providing a safe environment in which children can learn.

If you would like to apply for the position, please download an application pack and return your completed application pack to the HR department by the closing date.

Telephone: 01920 824335

This role is exempt from the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 and the amendments to the Exceptions Order 1975, 2013 and 2020.
