  • Salary: Competitive to attract the right applicant
  • Start Date: From April 2023
  • Contract: Full Time / Permanent

St Clare Catholic Multi-Academy Trust is newly established with its first twelve schools (primary and secondary) joining in September 2022, with one more school approved to join St Clare’s in autumn 2022. Further schools wish to join in the coming year, working towards the Diocese of Hallam vision that 24 schools across Sheffield, Barnsley, Rotherham and Doncaster (approximately 8500 students) will in time form St Clare Catholic Multi-Academy Trust.

This is an exciting time of growth and development for our family of schools. St Clare’s Board is looking for a permanent CEO to build upon the excellent foundations laid by our interim-CEO and permanent CFO in the approvals/opening phase. We are seeking an inspirational leader who can provide visible strategic leadership, drive achievement of high standards and develop the Catholic character of the St Clare family of schools. This is an opportunity to lead the Trust’s organisational development and change, establish the St Clare culture and to have an impact on the education of young people across the diverse communities of South Yorkshire.

Our vision in forming St Clare Catholic MAT is to preserve and protect the unique character of each school while helping each to build on their strengths and overcome challenges in new ways by working together. We follow principles of subsidiarity, solidarity and the common good. Our aim is that every child and member of staff will benefit, but we expect and believe that the greatest benefit will be for those children who are facing the greatest challenges. We aim not only to develop and retain the best talent within our schools, but also to become the employer of choice in the region.

Interested in taking on the challenge? You must be a practising Catholic with the ability to articulate a clear philosophy for Catholic Education. You will have experience of successful system leadership/school improvement within educational settings. You will have a proven track record of building effective teams and management structures, with an ability to inspire others to commit to a shared purpose and vision.

This is an opportunity to shape and build the future of Catholic education within the Diocese of Hallam. This is a highly influential role and an extremely attractive and rewarding career opportunity.
