Job located in either Christchurch or Auckland.

This fixed-term position is in response to ‘special reasons’ staffing being allocated by the Ministry of Education to support our school’s development alongside the new Oranga Tamariki operating model.

We are seeking a leader who is innovative in their educational thinking, who can establish and contribute to systems that will support the growth and effectiveness of the school, and who has a proven ability to lead and inspire others.

We are a special, composite, decile 1, state school that is a centre of excellence for providing education to children and young people in the care of Oranga Tamariki. The 7 campuses are located in Auckland, Rotorua, Rolleston, Christchurch, and Dunedin, providing education in youth justice residences, care and protection residences and in community-based settings for young people in non-residential care. Each campus is currently led by an assistant principal who is responsible for the day-to-day management.

The fixed-term deputy principal will work alongside the principal and the business manager across all 7 campuses to provide whole-school leadership and development. Skills in leading change and problem solving are essential. This is a unique opportunity for someone with proven leadership capability and a passion for making a difference with young people who have multiple and diverse needs.

You will be employed under the Secondary Teachers' Collective Agreement but both primary or secondary qualifications will be considered. Due to the nature of the school the location of the positions can be negotiated, with the option of either Christchurch or Auckland. Flexibility to undertake regular domestic travel is required.
