Located in Christchurch, St Andrew’s College is an independent, co-educational school offering top quality education, cultural, arts and sporting activities to 1550 day and boarding students from pre-school to Y13. St Andrew’s has a proud Presbyterian heritage and long tradition of academic, sporting, cultural and leadership excellence. While tradition and history are fundamental to the spirit of St Andrew’s, the College has its sights firmly fixed on the future.

The college seeks an applicant with significant experience in the leadership of Outdoor Education. The Castle Hill Outdoor Education Centre Operations Manager will lead the restart of the centre through to a fully operational year-long Outdoor Education programme. The Operations Manager will lead and develop a high functioning team of instructors who will be responsible for delivering Outdoor programmes within the Castle Hill Basin and beyond to every student in Y7–10 across the college, and specialised programmes to senior students. The Operations Manager will report to the Rector, through the Head of Values and Culture.

Responsibilities include strategic planning, programme design, staff management, recruitment and professional development, management of facilities and equipment, health and safety, and other programme offerings.

This is an exciting opportunity for an experienced leader in Outdoor Education seeking to impact positively on the lives of young people, at the same time joining a dynamic, forward thinking middle leadership team.

St Andrew’s College is committed to the ongoing professional development of its staff and offers significant benefits in addition to a supportive working environment.
