This is an excellent time to join James Brindley as the Academy continues to implement a strategic vision developed by pupils, staff, and other stakeholders. Join us to ‘Think Differently to inspire young people to overcome all barriers and achieve their dreams’.

James Brindley is a stand-alone Academy based in a wide variety of locations across the City of Birmingham. In the course of a school year we educate over 3,000 pupils for periods ranging from a few days in hospital to several years in one of our teaching centres. The majority of our pupils have complex medical needs, and many have been out of education for a significant period of time prior to joining the school.

We are looking for a Careers Lead to oversee the careers team, comprising of Employer Engagement Officers and Careers Advisers. The main purpose of the role is to develop, implement, and evaluate an effective and continually improving careers education, careers information and careers guidance for young people embedding the eight Gatsby Benchmarks.

You should be passionate about developing and supporting the needs of the whole child and committed to enabling all pupils to achieve their potential. A good standard of education including literacy and numeracy is essential, and a level 6 qualification in the relevant field is desirable. You must be willing to work across all our centres and have full clean driving licence.

This post is covered by Part 7 of the Immigration Act (2016) and therefore the ability to speak fluent and spoken English is an essential requirement for this role.
