Head of Senior School – St Ignatius’ College, Adelaide SA 202 views

Head of Senior School

The current Rector and CEO, Fr Rob Davoren SJ, concludes his role at the end of 2017, after 11 years of thoughtful and inclusive leadership accompanied by great vision and dedication. In 2018 the College will take on a new form of leadership, in line with other Jesuit Colleges in Australia, by employing the College’s first lay Principal. The successful internal candidate was Peter Coffey, who vacates the Head of Senior School role. The College therefore invites applications from appropriately qualified and experienced candidates for the position.

The successful applicant will be an outstanding senior years educational leader providing vision for teaching and learning within the 21st century context. Working closely with the Principal and the Jesuit Rector in the College Leadership Team, he or she will be a role model for staff and students, with the warmth, energy, enthusiasm and capacity to motivate, inspire and give witness to a faith that does justice for all members of the College community. As a leader within the Australian Jesuit mission, the new Head of Senior School will be a practising Catholic with a desire to embrace Ignatian spirituality and explore how this informs the College’s ways of operating.

Hender Consulting is assisting the College Council with this appointment.
