Start date: As soon as possible
Contract type: Full Time
Salary: Competitive
Contract term: Permanent

An opportunity has arisen for an exceptional candidate to take on the role of Head’s PA to provide a comprehensive confidential support service to the Head and to be responsible for the efficient organisation of the Head’s Office. This is a key role within Fettes and requires someone who is highly experienced in managing a multi-faceted schedule while remaining always responsive to the individual needs of parents, pupils, staff and of course the Head.

The Head’s Office is a particularly busy one with many demands being placed on the Head himself, not least from prospective and current parents but also pupils and staff. There is a constant flow of people through the Office and the PA must be able to work in what is sometimes a high-pressure environment.

The ideal candidate will have worked closely with individuals at a senior level within an organisation and will be able to demonstrate very sound judgement, courtesy, patience and loyalty all mixed with a degree of firmness and resilience.  You must be pro-active and a self-starter, motivated to succeed and able to plan ahead and foresee problems as or preferably before they arise.  You will act as a filter on behalf of the Head to ensure that his time is used most effectively and ultimately to the benefit of the school as a whole.

If you would like further information prior to applying for this role, please contact Mrs Gill Joyner, HR Manager on  0131 241 1005.

To apply please complete an Application Form, which can be accessed together with a full job description directly from our website at http://fettes.com/contact-us/vacancies/. 

Fettes College is committed to the safeguarding of children. An offer of employment will be subject to two satisfactory references and a clean report being obtained from the Disclosure Scotland PVG Scheme in view of the contact that you will have with children during your normal duties.

Closing date for applications is Monday 15th October 2018. Interviews will take place on Wednesday 31st October 2018.
