School business management services

The role of the school business manager has grown significantly over the past ten years, prior to which when the post was virtually unknown in the maintained sector.

Herts for Learning is increasingly aware of the diverse nature of this role, of the additional responsibilities included within the remit of school business management, and of the challenge that schools are facing in recruiting competent business managers.

To support schools with this challenge, Herts for Learning has introduced a Business Manager Recruitment service, which assists schools with drafting appropriate job descriptions and adverts; advises on candidate shortlisting; develops the format for the interview day; and supports the formal interview process.

Once a new School Business Manager has been successfully appointed, Herts for Learning also offers an induction and mentoring service for newly recruited business managers. The new business manager will be inducted into their role by an experienced and highly qualified professional mentor. The bespoke induction is tailored to each individual's needs, supporting them during their first 100 days in post and includes up to 3 days coaching, a tailored development plan and telephone and email support.
