AIM North London opened in September 2019. This is a rare opportunity to be part of the Founding AIM Team. AIM North London opened on the site of Nightingale Academy, Enfield: we opened with a centrally recruited AIM Academies Team to help lead the significant changes needed within the new academy. We are driven by a clear moral purpose and have the highest aspirations for the Academy and the community; we hope for AIM North London to be one of the most rapidly transformed academies in the country.

We do not underestimate the magnitude, or the importance, of the job at hand. It will require huge amounts of perseverance and a constant drive for innovative excellence. However, this role will also be incredibly rewarding and will offer exciting progression for the future.

If you share our core belief in a growth mindset, have a relentless focus on high standards and operate with the utmost professional integrity and humility, then we would love to hear from you. Equally, if you know other colleagues for whom this challenge would resonate, and who have a proven track record of excellence, then feel free to put them in touch with us (and let us know that you have referred them).

We look forward to receiving your application form in due course. We wish you well and thank you once again for your interest in what we think will be a challenging and rewarding post.
