Job summary

Are you looking for variety in your working day? Would you like the opportunity to be part of a brand new school? Then this could be the post for you!

Deer Park School opened in September 2021 initially with four forms of Year 7 and will grow to full capacity of seven forms of entry over the next seven years.

We are searching for an enthusiastic and efficient person to man the reception desk alongside undertaking other administrative duties relating to student absence. You will be the first point of contact – the friendly face of the school (meeting & greeting, responding to emails/telephone calls). Working with the public, parents, staff and students requires someone who has tact and diplomacy and the right person will need to have high standards of verbal and written communication with the ability to use the full suite of Microsoft Office. You will need to work independently and as part of a team with a flexible approach to your work, as no two days are the same.

If you are a hardworking individual who has a great sense of humour and you have patience, with a passion for assisting young people, then we would welcome your application.

Benefits of working for our trust include:
• Enrolment in one of the UK’s Largest public sector pension schemes
• A tax efficient Cycle-to-Work scheme through salary sacrifice
