Our Opportunity

We are looking to appoint an enthusiastic person to this important post of School Receptionist/Administration Assistant. You will be based at Caedmon College working full time hours.

Caedmon College is an established, successful, popular and growing 11-18 community school situated in Whitby on the North Yorkshire Coast. As a school, we have very low staff turnover and high staff retention. As well as living in the town of Whitby and its beautiful surrounding areas, colleagues travel from areas such as Redcar, Guisborough, and Ryedale, as well as from Scarborough and Filey.

Caedmon College is located on two sites about 5 minutes walking distance apart: our Normanby site hosts students in Y7-11; and our post 16 students are based at the recently refurbished Whitby Sixth Form site.

We are:
• A ‘Good’ school in every area by Ofsted in 2017.
• A school where British values are at the heart of our curriculum – so that all our students leave school knowing how to conduct themselves

We are looking for a colleague who:

The postholder will be a member of the office team, contributing to a range of office duties positioned on the busy reception desk at the Normanby Site. Duties include franking mail and undertaking word processing and administrative tasks, as well as greeting visitors and ensure the correct visitor protocols are carried out.

The successful postholder will have good organisational skills, be customer-focused and have a sensitive approach in dealing with parents, students, staff and external professionals. The appointed postholder will ideally have experience/competency in a various computer programmes to assist with office jobs. The role will involve dealing with students from the ages of 13 to 19 years in the main.

The postholder may be expected to work on either site’s reception desk and possibly across the wider Secondary Partnership which includes Eskdale School. Much of the office work is highly confidential and tight deadlines have to be adhered to.

Desirable candidates will be able to work well under pressure and have a high standard of accuracy, with good word-processing and computer skills. A personable telephone manner will be essential. The role may often be hectic and the postholder will need to be resilient and calm, and able to deal with a wide range of people.

The date of commencement for this post will be ASAP. Interviews will be held as soon as possible after the closing date.

Closing date: Thursday 4th November at 9am

We reserve the right to close this vacancy early should we receive an overwhelming response. All candidates are advised to refer to the job description and person specification before making an application.
