What skills and experience we're looking for

United Learning Trust is seeking to appoint an HR Administrator supporting our five established schools and adult learning provision in Cambridge. These schools are Cambridge Academy of Science and Technology, Coleridge Community College, The Galfrid Primary School, Parkside Community College and Trumpington Community College. The post is ideally for a 1st September start.

We are looking for someone who is highly organised, professional and approachable, and who displays excellent communication skills. The role will involve working with sensitive information and requires the ability to prioritise and work well under pressure.

The role offers flexibility in terms of a degree of remote working, subject to agreement with the HR Manager, and freedom in determining your specific working hours (e.g., start and finish times around core required hours) enabling a work-life balance tailored to your needs.

Previous administrative experience would be an advantage although it is not essential as full training will be given.

The successful candidate will play a crucial role within the Human Resources department, providing an essential administrative function to ensure that all schools have the best possible support and information to enable use of their resources effectively to provide the best outcome for students.

What the school offers its staff

We are part of a cluster of schools within the United Learning group: The Galfrid School, Coleridge Community College, Trumpington Community College, Parkside Community College, and Cambridge Academy for Science and Technology.

We embrace United Learning’s aim to offer a life-changing education to children and young people, and we work as a team to achieve more than any single school could.

We share knowledge and resources within the cluster and the group to simplify work processes and manage workloads to achieve excellent results while improving work-life balance. As a cluster and as a group, we can look after our staff better.

There are many benefits to working as part of United Learning – we encourage staff to visit other academies, “steal with pride” and bring the best practice back to our own schools. 


We will offer you:

  • Community spirit in each of our inclusive and welcoming schools

  • Excellent facilities and resources

  • Talented, supportive and professional colleagues

  • Excellent training and development opportunities

  • Opportunities to collaborate with colleagues in our cluster of schools and Central Office

  • Access to the enhanced Local Government Pension Scheme

  • 26 days annual leave in addition to bank holidays

  • Enhanced family friendly leave options

  • Access to over 250 employee benefits through Perkbox and Westfield Rewards

  • Salary sacrifice schemes for cycle purchase and gym membership

  • Access to Westfield Health Cash Plan offering money back towards the cost of essential healthcare and same day virtual GP appointments

  • Free and confidential counselling and support (EAP) and access to a free Wellness Hub
