About the Role
This is a rare and exciting opportunity to be part of an exceptional growing comprehensive school. As a member of The Swan’s team, you will help to build the foundations of an outstanding school from the ground up.
As Admissions Officer, you will work closely with other senior colleagues to ensure high levels of student recruitment to The Swan School. You will have the opportunity to liaise with key stakeholders in the school and outside of school to ensure that the greatest number of students are able to benefit from the fantastic education that we offer. This will involve marketing of the school, managing effective recruitment processes, and ensuring that student admission records are kept up to date.
The successful candidate will share our ambitions for our students, and be motivated to help our students and their families have the best experience of school. You will enjoy working in a busy environment, where no two days are the same. You will be highly organised, have excellent interpersonal skills, and be a self-starter who is keen to learn new skills. You will be confident with IT.
This is initially a part time role (20 hours per week), but there will be opportunities for the role to expand later as the school grows. Whilst the majority of this role is during term time, there will be an expectation for the successful candidate to work during the last few weeks of the summer holiday when admissions are at their busiest. There may be flexibility to work less hours from October-March.
