Exams Officer and Administration Support

Great Western AcademySwindon

An exciting opportunity has arisen for an analytical and strategic thinker to join our friendly office team. The role comprises of three main elements - Exams Officer, Staff Absence Administrator and Administration Support for the Senior Leadership Team. Being a growing school, the balance of time between these elements will vary as the role develops in the coming years, and this will allow the successful applicant to specialise in just one or two of these areas in due course if desired. For example, whilst at present our examination entries are small, by summer 2023 the Exams Officer element would likely be approaching a full-time post. Due to the Staff Absence aspect of the role, a 7.30am start is essential.
