Chief Executive Officers - Nottingham Diocese Multi-Academy Trusts

Salary: £Competitive to attract the right applicants
Location: Derbyshire, Leicestershire, Lincolnshire, Nottinghamshire
Contract Type: Full Time
Contract Term: Permanent
Start Date: September 2018

The Diocese of Nottingham is rolling out a pioneering educational plan that will protect and develop the Catholic identity and mission of its schools by ensuring each school is part of a large diocesan Multi-Academy Trust opening in September 2018.

All 84 primary and secondary diocesan schools will join one of four Catholic Multi-Academy Trusts within the following geographical areas: 

  • St Ralph Sherwin Catholic Multi-Academy Trust – covering Derbyshire, Staffordshire and Stockport; 
  • St Thomas Aquinas Catholic Multi-Academy Trust – covering Leicestershire;
  • St Thérèse of Lisieux Catholic Multi-Academy Trust – covering Lincolnshire (including Rutland); 
  • Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Multi-Academy Trust covering Nottinghamshire. 

We are seeking four Chief Executive Officers to play a key role in leading and shaping an outstanding Catholic education within their Trust and the diocese as a whole.

A practising Catholic with demonstrable experience of successful system leadership/school improvement across more than one school leading to rapid and sustained improvement is essential.

Now is a moment of real opportunity, which makes these posts an extremely attractive and rewarding career opportunity. 

The closing date for applications: Midnight Sunday 3 December, 2017

"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

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

Bishop Nick Baines - Anglican Bishop of Leeds

"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

"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

"…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

"Thank you for everything you did to successfully support our recruitment of an outstanding Headteacher for our Roman Catholic Non-Maintained Special School. Using Emmaus Leadership to manage the recruitment to the post was much debated and was the subject of intense scrutiny by our Governing Body who were somewhat reluctant to use a leadership recruitment specialist. However, their confidence was reinstated as a result of your professional approach, your insightful knowledge, the very high standard of advertising of the post and the resulting candidate pool. I have no hesitation in recommending Emmaus to other schools."

Annie Sutton - Executive Principal, St Joseph's RC Specialist School and College

"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

"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

"Having previously struggled to recruit two Headteachers - for both a Primary and a Secondary school - Emmaus came to the rescue. Their expert advice and deep understanding of recruiting Headship positions in Catholic schools is invaluable, and I have no hesitation in recommending their knowhow and their values."

Fr David Gibbons, Chair of Governors & Parish Priest, Archdiocese of Southwark
