Use our model job description and personal specification to recruit your next careers leader. It's based on the DfE's statutory guidance on careers guidance and the Careers and Enterprise Company (CEC)'s guidance on the role of a careers leader.

You'll need to adapt it to suit your school's context, needs and priorities. For example, your careers leader might be:

  • A teacher
  • A member of your senior leadership team or middle leadership
  • A careers professional
  • An external professional who works across several schools
