Immanuel College is a highly successful, modern orthodox, co-educational Jewish day school located in a leafy suburb of Hertfordshire within easy reach of North London. The College has grown significantly over recent years and now educates some 700 pupils aged 4 – 18 years. Immanuel has built a strong reputation and, with demonstrably impressive ‘added value’, has exceeded expectations in terms of its exam results, although not at the expense of the pupils’ welfare, which has continued as a central pillar of its approach. Following this period of growth and educational advancement, Immanuel is now planning towards a period of major development which will include a substantial building and refurbishment programme over the next five years.
The COO will play a pivotal role in helping the Governing Board and Head to realise their long term aims and objectives for the future development of the College at this exciting time. They will act strategically and commercially as the facilitator of sustainable change working collaboratively and openly in a way which builds trust and confidence across the school and the wider community.
The successful candidate will bring a proven track record of successfully managing finance and other operational resources, as well as the delivery and implementation of significant organisational change. A commitment to the values and mission of the College and a collaborative and enabling style of leadership will be key elements. Applications are encouraged from candidates with significant educational experience, business or public sector backgrounds, who bring a high level of commercial acumen, a proven track record of change management and a genuine passion for education.
