The Business, Administration and Finance roles within a school are key to its smooth running. Hampshire offers a wealth of support for these roles including in-house teams who provide school-specific HR and Finance support services. There are Conferences and Network Meetings held throughout the year, providing opportunities to network and to update knowledge. There are also a number of training courses aimed specifically at school Admin Officers and similar roles.
See what a Business Manager says about working for Hampshire
I joined the school just six months ago after working in a large Bank Head office for 25 years. During that time volunteering as a Governor led me to the decision my future needed to be school based.I have a real passion for numbers, so being the School & Community Business Manager and having to look after all those pennies is a real challenge, but one I relish. It is also vital to me to have some real significance behind those numbers, i.e. the decisions that I make have an impact and consequences. Coming from a ’non school’ background, Hampshire have provided excellent training and advice where needed. As well as working with the numbers, I also love people and it is incredibly rewarding to be part of a team sharing a common goal & purpose. There is a really positive atmosphere in this school, both amongst the staff and the students, which is infectious and makes me excited about the years and challenges ahead.
