Role Description/Criteria

Killester College is seeking a suitably qualified and passionate professional to lead the Finance, Business Operations and Administration areas of the College.

The position is a 12 month full time contract parental leave vacancy. The College Finance/Administration area is currently undergoing review and as such there may be potential for ongoing employment post the maternity leave replacement period.

Killester College is a Catholic Girls School in Springvale and a Kildare Education Ministries College in the Brigidine tradition. Kildare Ministries, our governing entity, has civil and canonical responsibility for ten schools and two community works.

At Killester we are dedicated to ensuring students have access to a well-rounded Catholic education that develops 21st century thinking skills.

We strive to build and maintain an environment where young people's voices are heard and respected. Our overall aim is that, at the completion of their studies at Killester, students will leave prepared to challenge the status quo, fight for just causes, know their own true worth and embody the principles of Kildare Ministries and our College.

  • An extensive understanding of, and commitment to, the mission of Killester College and Kildare Education Ministries, as expressed in the Living Justice; Living Peace Charter and the College Values, Mission and Vision Statements
