Deadline Date: 20th August 2023

We are looking to recruit a highly competent Senior School Office Assistant with immediate effect into our dynamic and friendly Senior School Office Team. The day-to-day role requires efficient completion of a variety of administrative duties, excellent customer service to all stakeholders of the Yarm School community and a knowledgeable support service to all colleagues. The Assistant needs to be able to multitask in a busy and varied office environment and maintain a welcoming, professional and calm demeanour at all times.  The role is at the heart of operations at Yarm School, therefore the successful candidate must enjoy and be suited to working in an environment with children.

Although the role is within an education environment, it is a 52 week/year position and attendance during the School holidays as well as term-time is a requirement.  The ideal candidate will be enthusiastic to embrace the culture and the inner workings of the School and preferably have previous experience of working in a School Office environment or a similar administrative role.

The successful candidate must be willing to undergo First Aid training if they do not already hold a valid certificate. The hours of work are from 8am to 4.30pm, with a 30 minute unpaid lunch break, Monday to Friday. There is also a requirement as part of the role to attend Open Days throughout the year, which will be paid as overtime. The annual salary for the role is £22,672.

Applications should be e-mailed to the School Manager as soon as possible and no later than midnight on Sunday 20th August. The school reserves the right to interview before the closing date if appropriate to the context of the field. Early applications are therefore very much encouraged.
