Mainstream academy vacancy
A mainstream academy vacancy has arisen on the Derbyshire Schools Forum. The position is open to, but not limited to, principals, senior staff or governors. Ideally you should have a key role in managing the finances of your academy or Trust. A link to the Forum page on the Council’s website is below and gives you a flavour of the work of the Forum.

Budget advice and planning
We can support you to plan your finances and make sure your governing body receives appropriate financial information and reports.
Income collection and recovery
We can work with you to make sure you receive all the money you are owed.
Payment of purchase invoices
We can help you to pay suppliers in good time so you can meet legal and contractual duties and avoid late payment charges.
Insurance and risk management
We offer specialist advice and support to give headteachers and governors the confidence that people and property are adequately insured. The cost of defending and settling claims is rising.
We employ solicitors and legal executives with wide-ranging experience of the issues faced by schools and governors to ensure that you have ready access to specialist legal advice.
