Job Title: Adviser
Working For: New Schools Network
Salary: Competitive, dependent on experience
NSN’s advisory team offers support and guidance to free school applicant groups. This includes researching which groups are best placed to set up specific types of schools, generating leads, engaging with applicants at the earliest stage of their thinking and throughout their journey until they submit their free school application to the Department for Education (DfE). Although based in our Manchester office, you will be expected to travel to NSN’s London office regularly.
You will act as a critical friend to groups of people, organisations and academy trusts who want to set up new free schools, responsible for delivering guidance and feedback on the quality and viability of their proposals, as well as co-ordinating access to the other services we provide.
This will be a demanding and challenging role. You will be directly responsible for your own set of free school groups but will also contribute to the development of the overarching package of support we provide to applicants, as well as to approved and open schools. As part of a small, dedicated team, you will have the opportunity to be involved in one of the most exciting and fast moving areas of public policy, gain experience of a range of disciplines and develop in terms of responsibility.
