This is an exciting new support role that will play an essential part in ensuring the smooth running of the office function within Bacons College. The role will support the Office Manager & PA to the Principal with the efficient management of the school office including, but not limited to, admissions, letters to parents and supporting teachers in trip organisation. There will also be the need to provide sound finance administration, notably with regard to purchasing, under the direction of the Finance Manager. The role also incorporates a support service to the front office which includes reception cover, first aid, interaction with pupils and parents as well as the effective organisation of the administration linked to these.
Applicants must be flexible, highly accurate with outstanding attention to detail and the ability to use their own initiative. Excellent numeracy, literacy and communication skills are a must. Previous school experience would be advantageous although not essential. Excellent organisational skills and a cheery and friendly manner when dealing with the public are key qualities for this role.
Bacon’s College joined United Learning in Spring 2018, a large, and growing, group of schools aiming to offer a life changing education to children and young people across England.
Our schools work as a team and achieve more by sharing than any single school could. Our subject specialists, our Group-wide intranet, our own curriculum and our online learning portal all help us share knowledge and resource, helping to simplify work processes and manage workloads for an improved work-life balance.
As a Group, we can reward our staff better: with good career opportunities, better pay, benefits, and ultimately, the satisfaction of helping children to succeed. We invest in our staff wellbeing. Our academies each have at least eight INSET days per year (with three of those solely dedicated to planning), and an ongoing group-wide wellbeing programme. It's an ethos we call ‘the best in everyone’.
