College Business Manager

The Queen's Foundation is a theological college in Edgbaston, Birmingham, providing theological education and training to a wide range of students.  The attractive campus on Somerset Road is very busy, with teaching taking place typically 7 days a week and several evenings, with a full academic year from September to July. 

We are looking to hire a College Business Manager to manage the College’s campus, hospitality and HR services to support the effective running of the Foundation.  The post holder will receive general direction and supervision from the Director of Operations and will be accountable to her for their work.

  • Have excellent communication skills (oral and written).
  • Be able to develop and maintain good relationships, with colleagues and with external bodies, with high levels of interpersonal skills.
