Why work for us

The Blackbird Academy operates in an area of significant deprivation with many barriers for children to overcome.

You will strive for excellence by using all your expertise in a dynamic and creative manner every single day. And you will need to push yourself to the limit in order to achieve our high expectations to provide the very best opportunities and outcomes for all of our children. But if you do rise to the challenge and succeed, you will reap the rewards of supporting and nurturing the children in our schools and becoming the best you can possibly be.

The Trust is a dynamic and vibrant place to work where being an effective team member or leader is crucial and leadership provides the impetus, support and challenge to help everyone become better than they thought they could ever be. Our sense of purpose and determination to build innovative, inspiring and highly effective practices across all levels of the organisation are an overwhelming driver and permeate everything that we do. 

Wherever you are in your career we may have a position for you.

This is an exciting opportunity to be part of a team of creative, innovative minds who have the highest expectations for the children in their care.
