Deputy Headteacher with responsibility for Behaviour, Attitudes and Personal Development

Salary: L22-L26
Location: Oldham, Greater Manchester
Contract Type: Full Time
Contract Term: Permanent
Start Date:  September 2019 or earlier

Newman RC College is an inclusive 11-16 voluntary aided school located in Oldham, ten minutes from Manchester city centre and the breath-taking Pennines. The school is situated in a new building with state-of-the-art facilities and enjoys excellent transport links. We are heavily oversubscribed, judged ‘Good’ by Ofsted in 2016 and subsequently awarded Greater Manchester School of the Year by Manchester Evening News.

We are blessed to represent a ‘close-knit’, diverse and talented catholic community that sees relationships with students and their families as integral to the success of every individual, as well as the belief that there are no limits to a child’s potential, irrespective of background.

We are seeking to appoint a Deputy Headteacher who is highly ambitious for all students, a proactive and visible leader with proven credentials in pastoral care. Most importantly, you will possess the right values; someone who witnesses to the benefits of service as a vocation, rather than simply a job.

We are looking for a practising Catholic who is an inspirational leader and with a proven track record in Senior Leadership.

This post is an exceptional opportunity for an ambitious Assistant or Deputy Headteacher to join the newly appointed Headteacher and, with the help of a highly motivated Senior Leadership Team, embark together on a new and vibrant chapter in the life of Newman College.

Closing date: Monday 25 March 2019 at 12 Noon

Shortlisting: Thursday 28 March 2019

Interviews: Wednesday 3 and Thursday 4 April 2019

We would encourage you to visit and see the culture we have and why it supports all who come in to contact with it.

"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

"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 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

"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

"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

"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."

Bishop Keith Sinclair - Anglican Bishop of Birkenhead

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

Bishop Nick Baines - Anglican Bishop of Leeds

"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 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 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
