St Bede's College, Christchurch, is an integrated Catholic school for boys of years 9-13, providing secondary education for day and boarding students with a current roll of around 800 students.
Reporting to the Rector and the Board, the General Manager has the overall responsibility for strategic financial, business & operations leadership and stewardship at the college.
As part of the leadership team this is a proactive role that assists in the strategic goal setting and implementation across all financial, property, administration and human resources functions for the college.
In summary the role encompasses all aspects of the college's operations outside of the curriculum, teaching, pastoral care, ministry and boarding, while still having financial oversight for these areas.
In seeking applications we view this role as an excellent career move for individuals who are professionally qualified, with senior level experience in accounting & finance roles, but who are seeking an opportunity that will offer a broader commercial and management focus.
We seek candidates who can also provide proven experience in leading & managing teams, good operational HR knowledge, and understanding of affinity with property management and strong skills in developing business systems.
The ability to lead the business planning and develop financial models and analysis are also key prerequisites. On a personal level we are seeking to identify candidates with strong communication skills, who are well organised and proactive and solutions focused in their approach.
