TLT has recently undergone a rapid period of expansion and now with eight schools across Northamptonshire/Buckinghamshire and the West Midlands, and we are looking to expand our central team to help manage this growth and support a period of consolidation across the multi-academy trust (MAT). We require a knowledgeable and committed Estates Manager to support the Tove Learning Trust (TLT) Leadership Team with the development of our school estates and operational management.
The exact job role will vary from time to time due to the differing needs of the trust and the composition of the estate which varies from a 1920’s grammar school to modern day. TLT is a MAT with a small central structure and a large amount of autonomy granted to its constituent schools. Each school has its own site team and business manager (or equivalent) and the post holder will work closely with these teams and the trust leadership team to ensure compliance with our statutory responsibilities.

The successful candidate will :
 have a recognisable qualification in a building services trade, surveying, property management, health & safety or equivalent
 have experience in a similar environment i.e. management of teams and properties in a range of locations
 be able to demonstrate strong IT skills including Word, Excel, PowerPoint etc. and a mastery of bespoke software relating to the job role
 demonstrate a commitment to ensuring that our school communities can work and learn in a safe environment.
 have to meet the person specification and will be required to apply for a DBS disclosure. Candidates must be eligible to live and work in the UK and hold a current driver’s licence. As travel is required between sites, they must have access to a reliable means of transport in order to carry out their duties. Training and development opportunities will be offered. All staff are encouraged to study further and the trust will actively support staff to obtain relevant further qualifications where possible.

Tove Learning Trust is a fast moving and exciting place to work. The trust schools have a shared vision and purpose: to deliver outstanding educational experiences that lead to inspiring outcomes. Each academy has a strong individual identity and tailors their educational provision to serve their local community. Academies within the trust collaborate to share expertise and maximise opportunities and experiences for our students. The Trustees of Tove Learning Trust are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
