Salary: £Competitive + Relocation Support to attract the right applicant
Location: Macclesfield, Cheshire, SK11, in the Diocese of Shrewsbury
Contract Type: Full Time
Contract Term: Permanent
Start Date: September 2018 

Are you the one who God has chosen to lead us forward in 2018?

All Hallows is an all-ability 11 -18 Catholic Voluntary Academy and Teaching School with a big heart and a national reputation for excellence. 

Our College has built sustainable school improvement on a passionate focus on teaching with a high value being placed on our young people’s personal development and spiritual well-being.

Working at All Hallows and within our Multi Academy Trust is an opportunity to join a progressive teacher-learning community, inspired by Christian values, which focuses on the art, craft and science of teaching, as a noble vocation, in a place where students enjoy learning.

Our new Principal will be attracted by this exciting opportunity in Catholic education, for there is much work yet to do in the areas of teaching, training and School to School support to name but a few. You will be joined in all your endeavours by an enthusiastic team of governors, trustees, staff and students that hum with common purpose to ‘Aspire not to have more but to be more’ (Mission Statement / Oscar Romero).

A practising Catholic with successful experience of leading on whole school improvement and managing change with demonstrable outcomes is essential.

For an existing Principal/Head this could be the next big challenge you seek …or equally for an experienced Vice Principal/Deputy Head and still yet untapped potential.

Closing date: Sunday 11th March at Midnight
Shortlisting: Monday 12th March
Interviews: Monday 19th (Eve) & Tuesday 20th March (All day)

"Thank you for everything you did to successfully support our recruitment of an outstanding Headteacher and Deputy Headteacher. 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 and the resulting candidate pool produced for both appointments. I have no hesitation in recommending Emmaus to other schools."

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

"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

"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

"…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

"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

"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

"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

"We had been cold called by a few other companies but chose Emmaus as it specialised in Church schools. We were impressed by Liam and his team coming to the school and burrowing in to what the school wanted and needed. He asked searching questions and we were satisfied this was the way forward. I had not been a fan of head hunters before, but I have to say this process and its result was a hugely better experience than going out on our own and was totally professional throughout."

Bridget Prentice, Chair of Governors - Trinity School, Lewisham

"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 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
