What skills and experience we're looking for

We are wishing to recruit a new administrator to start as soon as possible to join our large and talented administration team who provide excellent administrative support to the families and staff at each of our schools.

We are seeking to employ an extremely personable and outgoing communicator to handle enquiries via the telephone and face to face. The role will be varied and rewarding as you will be supporting the Trust’s 2,600 pupils and their parents. You will have access to a comprehensive suite of administrative tools and supporting software packages including Microsoft 365. You must have a great work ethic and a “get the job done” attitude.

The role is varied and will sometimes require you to manage incoming phone calls, respond to parents in person at the main reception desk along with supporting the back-office functions to ensure that our many services run smoothly. We are responsible for seven Nurseries, an in-house dining service in each school, our own bus service, a wrap-around care service, a range of extra-curricular activities and many school trips and residential activities for children. This requires the efficient use of our management information system, our communications systems, and the maintenance of many different databases to support these different services.

What the school offers its staff

You will benefit from a generous pension scheme, a health scheme, a cycle to work scheme and subsidised meals in our staff café with food cooked and served by our own chefs. Successful candidates will be provided with state-of-the-art IT equipment to help them fulfil their duties and we support all staff with an investment in their professional development through training and a good performance management process, where a bonus is payable to those who achieve highly. Our employees also have access to subsidised childcare costs in one of our breakfast clubs, after school clubs and school holiday club.

This all year round role is permanent and will be based at one of our schools in Exeter. The hours are 8:30am to 5:00pm, Monday to Friday with a 30-minute lunch break. You will be entitled to 28 days leave including bank holidays. The actual salary will commence in the region of £23,900 per annum.

We look forward to receiving your application and hopefully meeting you as part of the recruitment process.
