Learn Sheffield is a sector-leading school improvement partnership.

Jointly owned by Sheffield’s schools, colleges and the city council, we’re a unique organisation that is reshaping how services to schools are delivered in the city.

We’re incredibly proud of what we’ve achieved to date. Our 2018 peer review, led by former Head of Ofsted Christine Gilbert, said we were a “standard bearer” for school-led partnerships everywhere.

But we’re now ready for further growth – and our new Director of Strategy & Delivery will play a lead role in the next part of the Learn Sheffield story.

We’ll look to you to lead us in the delivery of year-on-year growth, providing leadership to the Learn Sheffield team and working closely with the Chief Executive and Board to translate strategic priorities into operational delivery.

To be successful, you’ll need to demonstrate commercial acumen, entrepreneurial thinking and an ability to develop deep relationships with schools and stakeholders.

Although not necessarily from an education background, it’s likely you’ll have experience of delivering products and services in or to the public sector. You’ll bring ideas on how to engage our customer schools in the planning and development of new and existing services and your work will help us to further strengthen our position as trusted partner and first-choice provider to schools in Sheffield.

This is career-defining opportunity. Deputising for our Chief Executive, you’ll have the opportunity to develop your professional profile at the heart of one of the country’s most high-profile school companies.

Learn Sheffield’s mission is clear – to improve the life chances of all the children and young people who live and learn in our city.

If you share that ambition and are passionate about joining us on the journey, we look forward to hearing from you.

For a confidential conversation, call our recruitment team on 01904 567818. Or visit our website.

Closing date for applications is 12 noon Monday 19th November 2018.
