Are you ready to be the next leader at Loreto?

“If you feel excited, anxious, humbled and challenged with the privilege of taking responsibility for enabling our community to continue its journey of improvement, you are probably the leader we want.”

The prospect of becoming the next Principal at Loreto College, one of the largest Roman Catholic Sixth Form Colleges in the country, serving 3,300 16 – 18 year olds on a range of courses, represents a unique opportunity in Catholic education.

For an existing Principal/Head this could be the next big challenge you seek …or for an experienced Vice Principal/Deputy Head with a proven track record and still yet untapped potential, we have the capacity, resources and above all the desire to develop and support you to become the outstanding leader God is calling you to be.

If you are a practising Catholic with recent secondary or similar experience gained in either a UK or indeed international educational establishment, then we would love to hear from you.

Closing date: Monday 29 January at Midday

Shortlisting: Wednesday 31 January

Interviews: Wednesday 7 (Eve) & Thursday 8 February (All day)

We very much look forward to welcoming you.

The College is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of young people and vulnerable adults and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.

The successful candidate will be subject to an Enhanced DBS check.

 

"I cannot imagine a better service to fulfil the requirement of helping a Catholic school find a Head. Emmaus did exactly what they advertised they would do. They researched their network, advertised and presented us with well qualified, high quality, suitable candidates. I was impressed with the number and quality of candidates sourced - I had expected they would attract about half of the candidates they did. Selecting a new Head is intense, complicated and political. It was well worth the price to have an expert like Emmaus guide us safely and successfully through this process."

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

"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

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

Bishop Nick Baines - Anglican Bishop of Leeds

"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

"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

"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 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

"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 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 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
