About the role

  • Broad business leadership role

  • Fabulous Yarra Valley location

The Little Yarra Steiner School provides child centric education from K-12 in an inviting and welcoming setting. Originally opened in 1986, the Little Yarra Steiner School rests on 60 acres of nature and wetlands. The Little Yarra Steiner School is one of more than 1500 Steiner/Waldorf schools worldwide and provides holistic education that values the unique, creative potential of each child, community relationships and the natural world. The Little Yarra Steiner School seeks a Business Manager to serve key responsibilities for the School.

Reporting to the Principal, this pivotal role includes financial strategic planning and management, property services, human resources and management of the administrative functions of the School.  The successful applicant will be enthusiastic, innovative, work collaboratively as part of a team and have relevant leadership experience, ideally within an education setting.

The key priorities for the Business Manager will be to build enrolments and maintain engagement with families, support teachers to enhance delivery of the curriculum, engage with stakeholders to drive future developments of the School in line with the Strategic and Master Plans, and ensure financial viability for the school through sound fiscal management, forecasting and development.

The Business Manager will support the philosophy of the School’s education and be aligned with the vision of the School’s Board. As an individual with a strong commercial acumen who understands the complex funding arrangements for the Kindergarten and School environment, you will work closely with the Finance Committee on audits and end of year reports to present to the Board. You will be a suitably experienced Business Manager in the educational sector, with knowledge of guidelines and regulations as set by government.

This role requires someone who is open and empathetic by nature, and who is committed to seeing children learn.  You will be a passionate, dedicated and ethical leader with a proven history in providing operational excellence to close-knit teams and develop strategies for the School’s growth and success. The role will suit those with a finance/ commerce qualification.

You will have an engaging personality, with the capacity to lead people in a collaborative environment. You will have exemplary attention to detail and the ability to manage budgets autonomously. Your success as Business Manager will allow for more children to follow a fulfilling, holistic and wholesome education path.

APPLY NOW if you are a collaborative, empathetic and hands-on leader with business experience, a passion for education and want to play a key role in contributing to the future of the Little Yarra Steiner School.
