Reporting to the Principal, the purpose of this role is to provide leadership and coordination for the major non-teaching support areas of the school including finance, risk management (including insurance, health & safety and HR), property management and catering. The role will also have responsibility for the school shop and IT operational infrastructure.

Primary responsibilities will involve leading strategic and operational business and financial planning for the school, and ensuring the delivery of cost effective and commercially-oriented support services. The provision of well-formulated business advice and support to the Principal, Senior Management Team and the school’s two Boards will be important aspects of the position.

Key attributes sought for the position include:

  • Previous experience in a senior commercially-oriented management role, ideally with finance, risk, property and project management responsibilities;
  • A proven ability to effectively lead and develop a team;
  • An innovative and strategic thinker with initiative, who is willing to take a “hands on” approach as required;
  • Excellent interpersonal, written and oral communication skills;
  • High quality planning and organisational skills, attention to detail and the delivery of quality support and advice;
  • An empathy for the special character of Dio.
