Head of Educational Outcomes
Competitive salary | January 2021 or sooner
This is an exciting opportunity for a school improvement professional who wants to make an impact on the lives of thousands of children and young people.
As our new Head of Educational Outcomes, your leadership will ensure Kirklees provides the sector-leading support and challenge our schools need to succeed.
That means not only excelling in our delivery of statutory responsibilities, but deploying expert capacity, brokering school-to-school support and engaging all schools in an ongoing dialogue about their needs and priorities.
To achieve this, you’ll need to be a leader who can inspire our talented team and be an influencer across Kirklees and beyond.
You’ll engage with school and academy leaders at all levels – establishing credibility through your track record of delivering improved results as a school leader, school improvement professional or role within a multi academy trust.
It’s important that you bring the professional experience and knowledge to further enhance relationships with all stakeholders – nurturing a truly participatory culture and giving confidence in your ability to deliver what schools need.
A natural networker, you’ll be comfortable with headteachers and senior leaders, as well as governors, stakeholders and colleagues working across the children and young people’s agenda.
You’ll represent us as an outward-facing, learning organisation – engaged with the very best practice nationwide.
Whatever your specific background, it’s also crucial that you share our mission and values – at the core, our commitment to doing the very best for all the young people we serve.
This is a fantastic opportunity to join a committed team. You’ll find experienced colleagues ready to support you every step of the way and you’ll enjoy the opportunity to shape and influence how we work together going forward.
