We are looking for an enthusiastic individual with a strong commitment to work excellence who will embrace this exciting opportunity to join the academy as an HR Officer. 

You will:

  • Have exceptional interpersonal skills and previous experience in a similar role
  • Be highly motivated and organised, with a proven ability to work effectively under pressure, managing multiple projects to meet time deadlines.

Bexleyheath Academy is an 11-19 academy of 1600 students situated in the London borough of Bexley. We are within easy access of the Dartford crossing and Blackwall tunnel  and only 30 minutes from central London on the train. We are an inclusive school at the heart of our community.

Since our last full inspection in May 2016 we have had a change in leadership and in January 2018 we welcomed our new Principal Dan Steel. Much hard work has already been undertaken including embedding a new curriculum, re-modelling pastoral structures and ensuring that all members of the academy community understand the vision of ‘making our best better’. We believe that whilst there remains much to do the academy is now well placed to quickly move towards our aim of being a 'good' school.
