William Perkin Church of England High School (Ofsted ‘Outstanding’) is one of four Twyford Trust schools, a successful multi-academy Trust based in the Borough of Ealing.

In this fast-paced environment, the school office requires an Exams Officer to manage the administration of internal and external exams as well as results and other exams-related administration.

Excellent communication skills are also essential, as is enthusiasm, commitment and a willingness to play an active role in the life of the school. If you are meticulous with an eye for detail, take pride in your work and have a “can do” attitude we would like to hear from you.

The successful candidate will undergo training in the main school office alongside taking responsibility for exams administration from the outset.

There is flexibility to offer this role as term time-only and/or part-time hours per week for the right candidate.

  • Degree or equivalent (desirable)
