HEAD OF MATHS
Permanent and Full Time
Required to start 1 September 2024
We are one of the top-performing colleges in the country, situated in the cosmopolitan seaside city of Brighton & Hove. Working here offers the combination of both a wonderful place to work and a great city in which to live. Our students and staff are colourful, aspirational and hard-working – which is perhaps why 96% of employees would “recommend BHASVIC as a good place to work” and many of our students go on to Higher Education.
We are seeking to appoint to the post of Head of Maths. This is an excellent opportunity for someone to lead and manage an exciting, vibrant and diverse team of staff and students. The Maths team has forged an outstanding reputation and it is recognised nationally for its progressive approaches to teaching and its excellent student outcomes. We are looking, therefore, to appoint a highly organised and collaborative leader who can consolidate and successfully build on this provision. The Head of Maths works closely with sixteen other Heads of Department, contributing to the broader strategic and operational business of the college. Regular one-to-one meetings are held with Head of Faculty Tim Chamberlain, and there are opportunities to participate in numerous cross-college initiatives such as BITESIZE staff development sessions and the BHASVIC Educational Research Group [BERG]. In short, the Head of Department is a vital and exciting role within the college management structure.
The successful applicant will be offered a permanent full-time contract. The BHASVIC Corporation has adopted the conditions of service and salary scales applicable to sixth form colleges. The current Management Pay Spine for this post is Grade C1-3. The salary range for this grade is £52,061 to £55,293 depending upon management experience.
Please note we welcome job share applicants for this post. If applying as a job share, both job share partners must complete a full application. Please specify that you are applying as a job share and state the initials of your proposed job share partner next to your own initials on Part 2 of the application form. Please also include in a cover letter details of how you and your job share partner propose to split the role.
