Director of Operations
Invictus Education Trust

Salary: Competitive
Contract type: Full-time, permanent
Location: Staffordshire

Invictus Education Trust is seeking a Director of Operations to develop and implement the Trust’s Operations Strategy, providing high impact services across the Trust with a focus on efficiency and quality.

Invictus Education Trust was created in March 2015 by a group of like-minded schools: Crestwood, Ellowes Hall Sports College, Kinver High and Wombourne High School. Two schools have since joined us, Leasowes High School in Autumn 2016 and Pedmore High School in September 2018, further strengthening an already thriving trust. In 2021 Rufford Primary School and Nursery became the first primary school to join our Trust.

Where we differ from other Multi Academy Trusts is our intention to collaborate, across our schools in every aspect. This means that our students, staff, parents and community all benefit from the culture we have created with our vision, mission and values, collectively known as our culture, the Invictus Culture.

We provide our communities with an excellent education, unique opportunities, and elite experiences. Our students love attending school and our team are proud to represent their school and Trust.

Whatever their starting point, our students make positive progress, with a perfect mix of academic challenge, pastoral care, and enriching experiences.
We are seeking a Director of Operations to help us make a real and tangible impact to our schools and communities.
The role will be accountable for the operational functions of the Trust, ensuring efficiency, compliance, and strategic alignment to the Trust’s strategic goals.

Our ideal candidate will have a degree in a relevant business discipline, supported by continuous professional development and proven experience in operations management.

You will have a strong commercial awareness and be able to evidence successful project management from inception through to evaluation.

You will be a strategic thinker with the ability to align operational functions with broader operational goals, able to work under pressure and deliver results in a multi-faceted role.

Exceptional communication and problem-solving skills are essential to the role, as are excellent interpersonal skills and the ability to engage, support and challenge stakeholders at all levels.
We require someone with an open mind, able to handle sensitive situations with tact and diplomacy while also able to provide honest and constructive feedback where needed.

You will be committed to high professional and personal standards, and doing the right thing even in challenging circumstances.

At the heart of the role is a willingness to promote a culture of collaboration and joint working across the Trust and play a full part in the life of the Trust community, to support its vision, mission and values.

If you are seeking the chance to make an impact in an organisation where your expertise and efforts will be valuable and valued, we’d love to hear from you.
