About the role: The majority of academies across LAT hire out fantastic on-site facilities which are used for sports and event hirings of an evening and at weekends. We now have a great opportunity to appoint a Lettings Facilitator who will be responsible for opening the site for the hirings/events, meeting and greeting visitors, assisting them with any queries, administration duties, decoration of the building, and locking the premises at the end of the hiring/event. Our successful candidate will cover the hirings booked across the week (including Saturdays and Sundays) at Longfield Academy, therefore, we require candidates to be flexible, reliable and professional. Rest assured that definitive hours will be agreed well in advance and can be discussed during the interview.
Working with us: Longfield Academy offers a friendly and supportive working environment with innovation and collaboration at the heart of everything we do. Following our most recent inspection (2018), it has been confirmed that Longfield Academy continues to provide strong educational outcomes for students. Leaders of the academy are highly ambitious for all of the students but also that we do not limit that ambition to the outcomes of public examinations - our students being prepared for life is equally as important to everyone at the academy. The relationships that students have with the staff has been identified as a key reason that our academy thrives. Our Post 16 provision continues to go from strength to strength, rated in the top 10% for Kent.
The school is heavily oversubscribed in Year 7 and Year 12. Longfield Academy benefits from modern, state-of-the-art facilities for learning across all subject areas. We have a thorough and robust approach to school improvement and is well on course to becoming a truly Outstanding school.
