Paula Bailey

Paula Bailey - Consultant

My name is Paula Bailey.

I have worked in the field of School Business Management for over 20 years; initially in a nursery and then in a large secondary school. My current position, as Business Director, is at a boy's high school in Flixton in Manchester.

I really enjoy the role and the variety it brings. I have gained a wealth of experience in finance, human resources, ICT, facilities management and administration.

Over the last five years I have also worked on GDPR and cyber security; I am well aware of the elements required to be compliant.

I started to work for Redrambler in 2022 and have enjoyed working with other schools. I am committed to offering robust advice and judgement and find I also learn a lot from the schools we work with.

I don't have a great deal of time outside my work but when I do I enjoy camping, spending time with my grandsons, reading and crafts.

"School business leaders have significant responsibilities for financial and operational strategic management, so it is essential that they receive quality advice from professionals who understand the Education sector. Iain Blair was my predecessor as Chair of the Manchester Secondary Schools Business Managers’ Forum for a period of five years and was elected by his peers as it was clear that his wealth of experience and detailed financial knowledge would prove invaluable in leading the forum of schools."
