School Business Manager


With I’m a Celebrity get me out of here 2020 launching last week on ITV, we decided to put our own swing on it. That’s why we have launched our ‘I’m a School Business Manager, get me out of here’ competition on Twitter which allows School Business Managers and other school support staff to enter themselves in to win a weekend away, all paid for by Telephone Europe (when safe to do so). What’s not to like?!

It’s clear this year’s circumstances has had a huge negative effect on everyone’s mental health and wellbeing. This includes our school business managers and support staff who have seen increased accountability, a challenging & heightened workload, and an immense level of pressure. With schools remaining open throughout the duration of the pandemic, workloads were heightened and staff had to adapt to the changing environment, whilst ensuring students remained as unaffected and undisrupted as possible.

With an article from The Key stating that nearly half of SBMs surveyed reported that their work had a negative / very negative impact on their mental wellbeing during the COVID-19 pandemic, we have made it our goal to cheer up as many school staff as possible. That’s why we have decided to launch our most recent initiative ‘I’m a School Business Manager, get me out of here!’


I’m a School Business Manager, get me out of here will be commencing on the 19th November 2020, just before I’m a Celebrity is supposed to air. We will be posting a tweet on the Telephone Europe Twitter (@TEL_europe) which requires school staff to like, retweet and follow us in order to be entered. It’s that simple.

The winner will be picked at random, and they will win a weekend trip away for them and one other in the UK, curtesy of Telephone Europe. Food and drink for the weekend will also be paid for, and unlike I’m a Celebrity, this will not consist of witchetty grubs, fish eyes, cockroaches and other questionable parts of animals that are consumed in Bushtucker trials.

I’m a School Business Manager get me out of here will be running for the duration of I’m a Celebrity get me out of here, and the winner will be announced during the final on Friday 4th December, so make sure you enter!
