The British School, Rio de Janeiro, has a thorough and robust Administration and Finance Department, which oversees the non-educational school areas, such as finance, administration, development and maintenance.
Our team is responsible for all the administration departments, such as: human resources, gate, security, reception, nutrition, cleaning, maintenance, inspetores, gardens, events, information technology, sick bays, purchasing, stock and development projects ; and the finance department is in charge of the accountancy, treasury, contracts and internal auditing.
Each area has a manager in charge of it. The main administration is located in the Botafogo Site, with specific managers and department branches also located at the Urca Site and at the Barra Unit. On these two sites, we do have a small team supporting the units in areas as gate, security, reception, maintenance, nutrition, stock, inspetores, cleaners and events.
Most of our employees have been working for TBSRJ for long years. We value their professional development and it is common that staff progress and are recognised with professional promotions during their time with us. Several employees start in the general services department (cleaners and events) and move towards other areas such as the purchase department , maintenance, inspetores and gate, for example. We support them with professional courses, university courses, language development (English) and post-graduate courses. As a team, we are constantly learning and have great opportunities to develop, together with the growth of the school, the staff and the students.
Our structure can be summarized
Welcome to our community – we are happy to serve The British School and to play a key role in achieving the School’s aims and aspirations.
