Business Manager

Chesapeake Bay Academy (CBA), serving students and families across the Hampton Roads region of Virginia, seeks applications for a new Business Manager. For administrative and support staff, CBA is a collaborative, welcoming environment where students, parents, and staff work together to achieve success. Their staff play a key role in fulfilling CBA’s mission.

The Position
Working collaboratively with and reporting directly to the Head of School, the Business Manager holds a key position in the school administration, directs both strategic and tactical non-academic operations, and serves as liaison to the Finance and Investment committees of the Board of Trustees. This position requires a thorough knowledge of finance and financial management, gained through education and experience in the business/economics (for profit) sector as well as in independent schools (and the not for profit sector). CBA’s Business Manager must be a creative, passionate educator/leader; as much a people person, as a money person. Proven experience in accounting and human resources is critical to success in this position. A degree in accounting is required.
