Are you seeking a new challenge? 

Are you seeking to make a positive impact to the lives of young people?

E-Spired is seeking an exceptional administrator / receptionist to join the team.

E-Spired began as a part-time alternative provision, offering support to young people who were at risk of exclusion from school or those who had already been excluded. We have evolved and grown into a full-time independent school and alternative provision. In April 2018 during our first academic year Ofsted rated us as a GOOD school across all the Independent School Standards.

E-Spired will be moving to a bigger school site for the next academic year September 2018 and will be extending our curriculum. 

We now have an opening for an exceptional Administrator / Receptionist to join our team. This is a front-facing role, being our first point of contact with visitors, students, staff and other stakeholder groups. 

The right person will be responsible for upholding the vision and ethos of the school at all times and provide an excellent level of customer service to internal and external stakeholders.  This role would be suitable for a job-share.

The ideal candidate will:

  • have experience of running an efficient reception and administrative service; ideally within a school environment.
  • have experience of liaising with students, parents, staff members and external stakeholders.
  • possess a warm and professional telephone manner with excellent administrative and organisational skills.
  • be passionate about the development of young people and committed to E-Spired's ethos of reversing the trend.

If this sounds like you and you are seeking to be part of something inspirational and challenging, then we would love to hear from you.
