Chief Operating Officer (COO)

Immanuel College is a highly successful, modern orthodox, co-educational Jewish day school located in a leafy suburb of Hertfordshire within easy reach of North London. The College has grown significantly over recent years and now educates some 700 pupils aged 4 – 18 years. Immanuel has built a strong reputation and, with demonstrably impressive ‘added value’, has exceeded expectations in terms of its exam results, although not at the expense of the pupils’ welfare, which has continued as a central pillar of its approach. Following this period of growth and educational advancement, Immanuel is now planning towards a period of major development which will include a substantial building and refurbishment programme over the next five years.

The COO will play a pivotal role in helping the Governing Board and Head to realise their long term aims and objectives for the future development of the College at this exciting time. They will act strategically and commercially as the facilitator of sustainable change working collaboratively and openly in a way which builds trust and confidence across the school and the wider community.

The successful candidate will bring a proven track record of successfully managing finance and other operational resources, as well as the delivery and implementation of significant organisational change. A commitment to the values and mission of the College and a collaborative and enabling style of leadership will be key elements. Applications are encouraged from candidates with significant educational experience, business or public sector backgrounds, who bring a high level of commercial acumen, a proven track record of change management and a genuine passion for education.

Support your Jewish community. Support your Jewish News

Thank you for helping to make Jewish News the leading source of news and opinion for the UK Jewish community. Today we're asking for your invaluable help to continue putting our community first in everything we do.

Unlike other Jewish media, we do not charge for content. That won’t change. Because we are free, we rely on advertising to cover our costs. This vital lifeline, which has dropped in recent years, has fallen further due to coronavirus.

For as little as £5 a month you can help sustain the vital work we do in celebrating and standing up for Jewish life in Britain.

Jewish News holds our community together and keeps us connected. Like a synagogue, it’s where people turn to feel part of something bigger. It also proudly shows the rest of Britain the vibrancy and rich culture of modern Jewish life.

You can make a quick and easy one-off or monthly contribution of £5, £10, £20 or any other sum you’re comfortable with.

100% of your donation will help us continue celebrating our community, in all its dynamic diversity...


Being a community platform means so much more than producing a newspaper and website. One of our proudest roles is media partnering with our invaluable charities to amplify the outstanding work they do to help us all.


There’s no shortage of oys in the world but Jewish News takes every opportunity to celebrate the joys too, through projects like Night of Heroes, 40 Under 40 and other compelling countdowns that make the community kvell with pride.


In the first collaboration between media outlets from different faiths, Jewish News worked with British Muslim TV and Church Times to produce a list of young activists leading the way on interfaith understanding.


Royal Mail issued a stamp honouring Holocaust hero Sir Nicholas Winton after a Jewish News campaign attracted more than 100,000 backers. Jewish News also produces special editions of the paper highlighting pressing issues including mental health and Holocaust remembrance.

Easy access

In an age when news is readily accessible, Jewish News provides high-quality content free online and offline, removing any financial barriers to connecting people.

Voice of our community to wider society

The Jewish News team regularly appears on TV, radio and on the pages of the national press to comment on stories about the Jewish community. Easy access to the paper on the streets of London also means Jewish News provides an invaluable window into the community for the country at large.

We hope you agree all this is worth preserving.
