Paradigm Trust is looking to appoint an Estates Manager into our Central Services team.   

This is a trust-wide appointment and whether based in London or Ipswich, you will need to be flexible and travel between the two locations, with the requirement to support the trust’s out of hours projects; emergencies and board meetings. 

This is an exciting time to join Paradigm Trust. We are a not-for-profit, state-funded educational trust (multi academy trust) consisting of six schools based in Suffolk and London.

Our vision is to develop and sustain great schools where we can make the biggest difference to pupils. We are strongly values led (integrity, community, excellence) and work hard to be inclusive. We deliver high quality education and play a positive role in local and national education systems.

The trust is educationally strong - every trust school that has been inspected has been judged to be good or better. We offer a well-developed and well-resourced, knowledge-based curriculum; have lots of experience of school-to-school support; operate effective teacher training programmes and provide strong operational support services to our schools. Paradigm also benefits from effective governance, backed by secure finances.

You will be working closely with the Board, Chief Executive Officer, Principals, Chief Finance Officer and Head of Procurement.

This is an exciting opportunity for a hard-working and experienced individual to work with the trust to maintain its estates to a high standard. This will be a demanding, varied and highly challenging role that will provide an excellent career opportunity for an exceptional individual. 

You will need to have experience of premises and/or estates management within a multi-site educational organisation, managing compliance and project management. As an experienced premises or estates management professional, you will be expected to manage a demanding and varied workload. You will also need to demonstrate great interpersonal communication skills and a high degree of flexibility, creativity and professionalism.

You will be joining a friendly and engaging workplace with benefits including:

  • Up to 31 days’ annual leave
  • LGPS pension scheme 
  • Employee counselling service.

As a trust, we are committed to reducing unnecessary workload and are outcomes-driven; flexible working options can be accommodated.
