James Cook Learning Trust requires a Chief Finance & Operations Officer (CFOO) to join our senior leadership team.

We are a relatively new Multi Academy Trust comprising of four primary schools serving the communities located in the south of Middlesbrough.

As a Trust our main priority is to provide the very best education to the pupils in our schools. We work closely together as four schools to achieve this aim and also in partnership with a number of outside agencies. The CFOO will take a lead in the business and financial aspects of the Trust’s operations, providing strategic support to both the Chief Executive Officer and the Trust Board. Ensuring compliance and sustainability within the academy environment will be a crucial aspect to this role as well as ensuring capacity for future growth.
