We are seeking to appoint an experienced Estates, Facilities and Sustainability Manager to lead the implementation of an estates strategy and manage all aspects of the school’s properties including upkeep, care, maintenance, security, health and safety and facilities management in line with statutory and regulatory requirements. You will also manage, support and develop the site team across Trust.

The successful applicant will be able to demonstrate their breadth of knowledge and work experience in managing all aspects of H&S, buildings and site projects, security and access, working with SLT to ensure strategic objectives are delivered on time and producing management reports when necessary. Your interpersonal skills, excellent time management, financial management and negotiating skills are also key aspects of this role.

Equitas Academies Trust was formed in September 2012 and incorporates Aston Manor Academy (Secondary) and Chilwell Croft Academy (Primary). Both Academies are happy, exciting, and inspiring learning environments for their children who are from a vibrant mix of cultures. The staff and Trustees have a great sense of pride in their schools and care passionately about the pupils they serve. We are consistently in the top 15% of schools nationally for achievement.

Aston Manor Academy serves a culturally diverse and economically disadvantaged catchment area yet year on year produces excellent results for its very deserving students. We firmly believe that one of the key hallmarks of Aston Manor Academy is the positive, friendly, and supportive ethos which enables all of our students to make progress, both academically and in their personal development. In our last Ofsted inspection (June 2017) we were judged to be Outstanding in all areas. In addition, our Sixth Form is rated best for progress in Birmingham!

Chilwell Croft Academy is a rapidly improving Primary School that is well supported by staff and parents alike. The Academy has made an extremely positive journey over the last few years and the Academy leaders and staff place a strong emphasis on positive attitudes, high-quality learning, and a strong team approach. Consequently, the school received an Ofsted rating of ‘Good’ in Jan 2019. Chilwell Croft is a harmonious community where pupils from different ethnic heritages work together well and feel safe.

As an employer, Equitas Academies Trust offers:

• a supportive and nurturing working environment

• a commitment to CPD opportunities

• employee wellbeing benefits including access to a bus pass scheme, Voluntary Health Care Cash Plan, and a cycle to work scheme, 1-2-1 Clinical Supervision for DSL’s

• employer contributions to Local Government Pensions Scheme (support staff) or Teacher Pensions Scheme (teaching staff)
