With its rich history, beautiful 200-acre wooded campus and reputation as the world leader in character education, Gordonstoun is a unique independent school offering a truly distinctive educational experience.

With the appointment of a new leadership team in 2016, Gordonstoun has entered a significant new phase in its development. This is an exciting opportunity for an entrepreneurial, creative and highly motivated Finance Director to help shape the future of an exceptional organisation, and ensure that Gordonstoun is able to realise its bold ambitions to grow the international reach of its unique educational ethos.

The successful candidate will be an experienced financial leader with high levels of commercial acumen as well as significant operational and change management experience. S/he will have excellent communication skills and the intellect and gravitas to gain the respect of staff, students, parents, governors and external stakeholders. Experience of the education sector is not required but a genuine resonance with the distinctive ethos which makes Gordonstoun special is essential.

Gordonstoun is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and its governors expect all its staff and volunteers to share this commitment.  The successful candidate must be willing to undergo child protection screening appropriate to the post (including an enhanced disclosure through the Disclosure Scotland PVG scheme).
