An exciting opportunity has arisen to appoint an experienced, highly motivated and efficient PA/HR Manager to our Headteacher.
The role includes an extensive range of responsibilities that will require a broad set of skills, enthusiasm and resilience. Applicants must have exceptional organisational skills and the ability to multi-task. They must be personable, approachable, responsive, flexible and accommodating and should be able to work well with frequent disruptions.
Interested candidates will need to work well as part of a team and must be able to work autonomously. Challenges and opportunities will appear on a daily basis, so applicants must be able to think on their feet, whilst following strict procedures and tight timescales; all within a highly confidential environment.
The successful candidate will ensure good school communication to all stakeholders both internally and externally with a high degree of accuracy and attention to detail. As well as excellent interpersonal skills, you must have resilience and empathy and be able to work effectively under pressure. A sound administrative background is essential; as is an excellent working knowledge and application of various IT packages.
