Post: Compliance Officer

Employer: REAch2 Academy Trust

Location: This is a trust-wide, national role based in one of the academies in one of the areas located in the South, London and South East, East Anglia or the West Midlands

Salary: Up to £30,000 (dependent on experience and qualifications)

Closing date: Wednesday 3rd April 2019 by noon


REAch2 Academy Trust is seeking an exceptional Compliance Officer to join the Trust in our growing organization, working with our academies. This will be a Trust-wide role, working in estates compliance and can be based in one of the areas covered by the Trust with the primary location located in Burton upon Trent.

The Trust has academies based all across England and includes schools at various stages of development, from those requiring significant improvement through to existing outstanding schools. As a Trust we are clear about the importance of achieving long term sustainability for our schools. Our vision is to enable individual academies to flourish with real autonomy, whilst also ensuring a strong ethos of support and collaboration across our schools.


We are presented with a rare opportunity to make a real difference to the lives and life chances of so many primary school children – many of whom haven’t previously received the educational opportunities they deserve.


In order to deliver our vision, we need exceptional staff across the organisation, and we believe that the quality of our staff sets us apart.


Working proactively with the Estates Team and Trust staff to establish and maintain a safe and statutorily compliant environment for pupils, colleagues and visitors; the role supports the Estates Team, the Trust and the individual academies by providing operational management, documentation, record keeping, monitoring, auditing and statutory compliance services relating to the management, safety, maintenance and development of the Trust’s estate.

Those we recruit are able to demonstrate that they share our values, are highly motivated to work with colleagues within and beyond their role to continuously develop their skills and pursue professional excellence, and are committed to providing the highest standards of professional expertise to support our schools, staff and all children alike. If that is you then we would be delighted to receive your application.


If you can offer:

  • experience of estates compliance gained in a facilities and/or property management role in a large, multi-site organisation, with multiple stakeholders, ideally within the education sector, or similar;
  • detailed understanding and application of compliance inspections and processes, auditing, risk assessment and report writing, together with sound judgment as to recommendations for improvements through to completion;
  • practical experience of term-maintenance / compliance contract procurement and management;
  • ability to act with discretion and confidentiality is a pre-requisite along with being highly organised and with meticulous attention to detail, whilst also working within tight deadlines is essential.


Applicants should describe in their application how they meet these criteria.


We can offer:

  • a competitive salary plus contributory pension;
  • 28 days’ holiday, rising to 31 days after 5 years’ service;
  • 8 bank and public holidays per year;
  • the benefits of being part of the forward thinking REAch2 Multi-Academy Trust considered to be one of the most successful primary Trusts in the country;
  • great career progression and development opportunities in this role.
