Vacancy Description / Summary

We are looking to appoint a Head of Careers - The EA Careers Department has built up a reputation for being very much pupil centred, with the emphasis on availability and individual guidance. This is an exciting opportunity for the new Head of Careers to develop this strength even further but also to have their own vision for the department in a rapidly evolving careers world. Working closely with a team of Careers Advisers and a Careers Librarian/Adviser (there are three part-time members of staff currently), the post-holder will be responsible for the management and delivery of the school’s careers provision. In addition to a dynamic careers programme, the Edinburgh Academy’s top priority is to make impartial careers advice available, on an individual basis, to all pupils.

The closing date for this position is Monday 2nd December with interviews taking place the week beginning 9th December.

Full details and how to apply can be found on our website.
