This post is also available on the basis of becoming a School Based Associate, rather than a direct contract. This arrangement would mean anyone currently employed by a school would need permission to carry out this role from your current employer, with the school receiving payment for your time. The working pattern for this type of arrangement would need to be discussed between the candidate, your school and the Babcock School Finance Consultancy Team.
Please feel free to contact Karl Murphy-Barnes, School Finance Consultancy Team Lead, for more information on 01392 287261.
