As the largest all-girls multi-academy trust in the UK, we have c4,500 students aged 11-18 and over 500 staff. We have a financial turnover of c£30m and operate over three large sites. Our aim is to empower girls and young women by delivering a first-class education and providing an inspirational start to their futures.
We are seeking to appoint a dynamic Director of Estates and Facilities. This shared services function will be tasked with leading, developing and ensuring efficient utilisation of the estates and facilities across all our schools.
