The work of the Global Director of Academy Operations begins with the design of the recruitment processes, training programmes, and compensation structures of academy staff, who are at the core of delivering everything Bridge does. The Global Director of Academy Operations must also design all of the academy management tools to help Academy Managers be more efficient and successful in their role – be them digital or non-digital solutions to pupil admissions and timely fee collections; supplies, grounds, and overall inventory management; teacher supervision and mentorship; retail and concession sales management; and more – including accountability measures across all responsibilities. The Director of Academy Operations also works with the Global Director of Customer Strategy to develop scalable, easy-to-implement communications, programmes, and events that will strengthen community leader support, community integration, parent outreach, parent affinity, and word of mouth as well as pricing communications, retention, promotions, and loyalty programmes.
