Required for September 2019

We are looking to appoint an experienced Administrative Assistant, who is an enthusiastic and well organised individual with excellent communication and interpersonal skills to enhance our successful and supportive team. The post is for four afternoons a week, Monday - Thursday 1.00pm-4.30pm.

At our school we pride ourselves on caring for all members of our school community and actively work together as a team to promote the wellbeing of all participants within school.

The role is busy and demanding, but is also extremely rewarding, as the school office plays a crucial role, in assisting the school to strive for the highest educational outcomes for all our pupils.

As the first point of contact for parents and visitors you will need to be warm, friendly and approachable, whilst maintaining the ability to work efficiently to fixed deadlines and flexibly to ever changing circumstances as they arise.

An essential quality for this post is the ability to use discretion in all matters, to be able to use your own initiative to work independently and to appreciate that you are always part of a team.

Applications are welcomed from candidates who have a good standard of English, Maths and Computing Skills; are caring and compassionate with a sense of humour whilst exercising discretion at all times.

Copford Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. This post will be subject to an enhanced DBS check.

Visits to the school are encouraged and warmly welcomed.

Further details and application packs from the school office if required.

Closing date: Monday 15.07.19

Interview date: Monday 22.07.19
