Dear Colleague

Thank you for your interest in becoming our new Executive Director of Finance. I hope the information you find here will give you a good picture of what is required and will encourage you to apply for what is a high-profile and exciting role.

Our college motto is ‘Ut Vitam Habeant’- ‘that they may lead life to the full’. We want all of our 2200 students across our three sites to have the fullest life chances they can. Our vision is to be the best provider of sixth form education in South East London, with a reputation for excellence with students, parents, schools and members of the wider community. We have a comprehensive student intake and offer courses at Levels 1, 2 and 3.

Our aim is for all our students to make excellent progression to the next level; our progression rates to university or work are very high and we generally achieve good A Level, BTEC and GCSE outcomes.

In the past six years we have extended our work, having taken over two 16-19 schools. Throughout this time our mission and ethos has remained at the heart of all we do. In the current climate of financial reductions, we have worked hard to ensure very tight financial management and our ESFA financial category is ‘Outstanding ’. Our three colleges have modern facilities and accommodation is in good condition. We are constantly seeking to further invest in learning and expand our operations.

Our new Executive Director of Finance will be an experienced senior leader with a strong sense of purpose and will have a good track record in the operational management and strategic oversight of finance and development of staff and systems. You will need highly developed communication skills, an understanding of post 16 funding structures and up-to-date knowledge of the education sector. As part of the Senior Leadership Team, you will play a crucial role in driving forward the strategic direction of Christ the King Sixth Forms.

We are an inclusive as well as ambitious college, where everyone – students and staff – matter, and we pride ourselves on our commitment to become an outstanding sixth form.
