Full time / 52 week contract

£58 - 63K per annum (DOE)

We are currently seeking a Principal. This is a new role, reflecting the successful development of the Orpheus Centre over the last 22 years and our ambitious plans for the future.

If you are an outstanding teacher with experience of special educational needs and disabilities and holistic support, we would like to speak to you about this brilliant opportunity.

You should be committed to enabling young disabled people to develop their independence and take their rightful place in society. We want to work with you if you are passionate about enabling young disabled adults to have a stronger voice in society so that they can change their and our worlds. It is vital that you show your enjoyment of work and that you expect and support a workforce of volunteers and employees to do the same. You don’t need to be an artist or performer, but you do need recognise and support the use of such skills to support the development of independence and confidence.

In addition, you will be a key influence in the next phase of development for the Orpheus Centre, ensuring future focused education, supported living services and community arts facilities for the next generations of disabled young adults.
