Candidate Details


Dear Sir/Madam,

School Business Manager
Ref: GE-1207108

Further to your recent advertisement for the above role, please find herewith my application.

Personal Profile: A positive and proactive professional with a highly successful career in business management and a passion for educational excellence. Possessing exceptional interpersonal, communication and negotiation skills, along with the ability to develop and maintain positive relationships with customers and suppliers alike. A motivational and inspirational manager capable of coaching and empowering staff to enable them to fulfil their potential, whilst ensuring they make a positive contribution to the achievement of targets and business objectives.

I have worked within the education market sector for many years at varying levels of the business, from supplying product/training and support through to being invited to attend consultation meetings with The Department for Children, Schools and Families (DCSF).

Within my roles, I have had the responsibility for producing the Strategy and Business Plans, reporting back to Board level on a monthly basis. This has required the monitoring of variances, both positive and negative. I have carried full P&L responsibility for up to £38m p.a. and, within these duties, was required to ensure that statutory requirements were met throughout the processes, along with audit requirements. This included cash flow, bank reconciliation and bad debts.

In my role with Capita I was responsible for 5 profit centres. This included the management of 8 premises within the UK and required the liaison with contractors for the management of any new build/improvements. The buildings were primarily used as training venues and were required to be ‘fit for purpose’ at all times. The health and safety for all staff and visitors were monitored and reported back on a monthly basis.

All aspects of HR, from job descriptions through to Contracts of Employment and payroll were part of the role, plus ensuring all performance reviews were carried out in a timely and effective manor. To enable change and growth it was vital that I worked with individuals and teams, ensuring their ‘buy in’, thus allowing the foundation to develop not only the business, but also the individual concerned.

During my appointments at Capita Children Services, Pearson Education, Apple Computers and Logotron Limited, positions held included Managing Director, European Business Development Manager, Head of Operations, Sales & Marketing Director and Head of Professional Services. Key achievements within these roles incorporated:

• Setting, monitoring and management of operational budgets through monthly P&L – reporting to Board Director
• Overseeing the facilities management of 8 regional sites
• Initiated performance objectives and appraisal procedures, leading to a more focused and motivated team
• Full responsibility for supply chain and operations, managing £20m spend for procurement and logistics
• The role of HR, including recruitment, payroll, CRB checks, health and safety and liaising with the company’s Personnel and HR Department
• Developed marketing strategy to increase turnover by 120%.
• Delivered IT infrastructure on new college build in Lincolnshire

I believe this opportunity represents a truly unique chance to be part of a highly dynamic and worthwhile organisation, allowing me to make a significant contribution utilising my skills and experience.

Yours faithfully,

(name removed)
