Diocese of Rochester

Welcome to our School Leadership Recruitment Service

We have joined together with our partners Emmaus to create a new recruitment and advertising service for all Headteacher and Senior School Leadership vacancies within the diocese. Our aim:

“To provide an outstanding Christian Leadership recruitment service for Rochester Church Schools and their candidates; pre, during and post appointment”

With your help, we intend to advertise all Church School Leadership positions in the diocese on this website.

Our current leadership vacancies are listed under Latest Jobs.

You can advertise your leadership position free of charge on this website. Please call Emmaus Leadership on 01737 652043 to discuss your requirements.

Alongside our new online advertising service, we have also developed with Emmaus three additional recruitment options to support Rochester Church schools. These offer varying degrees of Candidate and Governor support depending on your school’s particular requirements. For more details please contact Emmaus Leadership direct.

We recognise you and your Governing body may wish to continue with the way you currently recruit via TES, Eteach and, or Kent Teach, but suggest you make use of the initial advice from Emmaus Leadership as the above advertising routes are also incorporated within their additional services, as well as other recruitment techniques with a greater focus on a ‘candidate centric’ approach to recruitment.

"We considered TES Prime, but the critical factor for us was that Emmaus are not only specialists in recruiting Headteachers, they are Christians focused exclusively on recruiting for Church Schools."

Canon Bob Baker, Chair of Governors,The Bishop’s CE School - Thetford

"Emmaus brings a level of professionalism, seen in other industry sectors, to church schools’ recruitment."

The Rt Rev Nick Baines - Anglican Bishop of Leeds

"I want to thank everyone at Emmaus for your support in recruiting our new Headteacher. You ensured that we were able to ‘cast a wide net’ and have a number of high quality applications to shortlist from. It was a great outcome for us and one I do not think we would have achieved on our own. We will be sure to be in contact again."

Dave Cobb - School Business & Development Manager, Saint Cecilia's CE School, London

"We have been working with Emmaus Leadership on a number of hard to fill leadership vacancies across the Diocese. All of our dealings have been extremely professional and the feedback from schools has been very positive. It has been somewhat refreshing to deal with a recruitment company that have a good understanding of the Catholic sector, the workings of a Diocese and the requirements of Foundation Governors in appointing senior leaders to our schools. Our experience of Emmaus Leadership has been very positive and I fully recommend their services."

Stephen Bryan, Former Interim Director of Education - Archdiocese of Southwark

"We are delighted with the appointment we made and I have reported to the whole community that we could not have been more thorough in the search or more rigorous in the selection process. Thank you Emmaus Leadership."

Jacqui Feely, Chair at All Hallows Catholic College, Macclesfield

"Emmaus were instrumental in persuading me to apply for the post of Headteacher. I had seen the school advertising in the past but nothing inspired me to get in touch. Once Emmaus advertised I felt intrigued and keen to learn more about the school. I was supported throughout the whole process, which was a very personal and positive experience. I would highly recommend Emmaus to any school thinking of recruiting, and candidates considering registering. If my new school had not used Emmaus I probably wouldn’t have applied."

Hannah Walters, Headteacher, Platt CE Primary School - Kent

"I have no hesitation in commending Emmaus to any school that is seeking to appoint a Christian Headteacher. In particular, Emmaus’ ability to promote the school, assess the ethos of the school and communicate this within the networks of those who might be considered as possible candidates was invaluable."

Clive Purser, Chair of Governors, St Andrew's CE High School for Boys, Worthing

"…we also considered other external recruiters, but Emmaus were clear favourites in terms of their recruitment expertise and in-depth knowledge and appreciation of the catholic school’s sector."

Peter Giorgio, Director of Education, Nottingham Diocese

"Could we afford it? My belief, as Chair was that we couldn’t afford not to. Our pupils deserved and needed strong school leaders to be found and drawn to apply. Our success was down to using Emmaus and definitely money well spent."

Carry Lynott - Chair of Governors, Our Lady and St Brendan's Catholic Primary School, Bradford

"I have no hesitation in commending Emmaus to any school which is seeking to appoint a Christian Head. My only regret is that we did not go to them for the first round of interviews that proved unsuccessful. It is an expensive option, but in the long run they are more than value for money. I am very thankful to God for the ministry of Emmaus, and I warmly commend them to you. In OFSTED terms, they are outstanding."

The Rt Rev Keith Sinclair - Anglican Bishop of Birkenhead
