Chief Executive Officer - Blessed Edward Bamber Catholic Multi Academy Trust

Salary: £Competitive to attract the right applicant
Location: Blackpool, Lancashire
Contract Type: Full Time (Part Time a possibility)
Contract Term: Permanent
Start Date: Negotiable

Emmaus Leadership will shortly be commencing the recruitment of a new CEO for Blessed Edward Bamber Catholic Multi Academy Trust (BEBCMAT) following the imminent retirement of the current CEO in December 2019. 

These are exciting times in Catholic education within the Diocese of Lancaster. The newly appointed Bishop of Lancaster has recently written to all schools within the Diocese encouraging them to engage in conversations around Academy status. As the only Catholic MAT within the Diocese, and with an excellent reputation for pupil welfare and academic outcomes - and all this despite serving an area which experiences deprivation and many of the challenges facing small coastal towns - we anticipate a bright future as we pursue opportunities to grow our CMAT in close partnership with the Diocese of Lancaster's Education Service. 

You will be a practising Catholic with Headship and/or demonstrable system leadership/school improvement experience across more than one school (Primary and/or Secondary) and an excellent understanding of the school sector as well as a strong grasp of current educational issues including the CMAT's evolving role within the parish, Diocese and local community.

Whilst this is ideally a Full Time appointment, a Part Time contract will be considered for a strong candidate with the requisite skills and experience.

Closing: Mon 21 October at 9am

Shortlisting: Tue 22 October

Interviews: Tue 5 (Evening) and Wed 6 November (All Day)

More details will follow but if in the meantime you would like to find out more about this opportunity and discuss your situation, in complete confidence, please contact Liam Dowds, our Emmaus Leadership Advising Consultant who is assisting us with this assignment, on 01737 652043  or ldowds@emmausleadership.me

ALL APPLICANTS MUST REQUEST AN APPLICATION FORM BY EMAILING ldowds@emmausleadership.me AND NOT APPLY ONLINE.

"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

"…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

"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

"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 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

"I have personal experience of the quality of service Emmaus provides, when I successfully applied for a Headship position through them. I always felt I could call up, get the ‘inside take’ on the school and ask any questions in complete confidence. The support and expert advice I received made the application process far less daunting and I would thoroughly recommend Emmaus to any Church School looking to appoint a key Leadership position."

Dan Pickard, Headteacher, The Bishop’s CE Primary School - Thetford

"Thank you for all your support, advice and professionalism through out the long and complex process of our Head’s appointment. Having helped us appoint first time round it was unfortunate, due to personal circumstances, that our new Head had to subsequently withdraw post appointment. We were truly grateful for your service guarantee, which meant we incurred no further costs in appointing her replacement. Your unfailing support and advice at all times was greatly appreciated."

Nicholas van As, Chair of Personnel Committee - Coulsdon CE Primary School

"I cannot imagine a better service to fulfil the requirement of helping a Catholic school find a Head. I was impressed with the number and high quality of candidates sourced by Emmaus Leadership."

Marjorie Bannister, Chair - St Michael's Catholic College, London

"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
