We are looking to appoint a part-time Administrative Assistant to join our team in the busy School Office. The post is for 22 hours weekly during term-time (39 weeks) starting 8th February 2021.

Good ICT skills are vital as is an ability to communicate effectively over the phone, in person and by email. A knowledge of SIMS software would be an advantage although not essential as training will be available.

This position will suit someone interested in helping with the financial/personnel duties in the office and the general secretarial duties associated with the school. Previous experience of working in a school would be advantageous but not essential. It is a very varied role and the person appointed will need to be able to use a logical approach to their workload, prioritising children's and parents' needs. It can be a pressurised environment so staying cool under pressure, with a smile are vital skills!
