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

"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

"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 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, 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

"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’m delighted with the way it went and the successful outcome (third SLT placement now!) helps confirm to Governors that your approach is right for these levels of appointment. It’s difficult to quantify the costs of recruiting and failing to get the right candidate ourselves - we’d only find out the true cost and also lost opportunities if we tried and failed. Altogether better to invest in getting it right first time, so thank you for all your hard work on this. The other side is the perception we leave with all candidates and I think we’ve worked together to do an excellent job (using your Assessment support). The communication, logistics and the care given I think is really important and Emmaus are a big part of that - you work as an extension of the school. I am fairly sure that all of the candidates will go away having had a great experience and that will help our reputation spread in a positive way."

Dave Cobb - School Business & Development Manager, Saint Cecilia's CE School, London

"We tried going it alone to find a CEO for our MAT but had only 2 applicants who didn't meet our requirements. We approached Emmaus and from the start their professionalism was reassuring."

Barry Leyland, Chair - Blessed Edward Bamber Catholic Multi Academy Trust

"I approached Emmaus following our unsuccessful attempts to recruit Deputy DDEs for both Dioceses. They went on to source a far greater number of candidates of high calibre. I highly recommend Emmaus!"

Canon Carolyn Lewis, Director of Education - Diocese of Leicester and Diocese of Derby

"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
