St Mary's Calne is a leading girls' boarding and day school located on a picturesque 25-acre site in Calne, Wiltshire. Ranked as one of the top 3 girls boarding schools in the country, our aims are clear, focused and forward-thinking: we develop in young women the academic and moral strength for them to become bold, resourceful, well-balanced individuals who have the capacity to lead and shape our modern world.
Our highly successful sixth form programme prepares girls for places at prestigious universities and in order to support them through their two years with us we are keen to appoint a talented and forward thinking Sixth Form and Higher Education Administrator.
The post holder will be responsible for the day to day management and co-ordination of the Sixth Form and Higher Education administration activities and will provide administrative support for all related events and processes, liaising with academic and support colleagues across the school. The successful candidate will support the full university application process from updating the guidance booklet for pupils, through to assisting during the August A Level results period.
Other duties will include coordinating a programme of careers events throughout the school, organising the regular lecture programme, ensuring topics are both wide-ranging and informative, and coordinating the Sixth Form Induction programme in September.
The ideal candidate will possess exceptional administration, communication and interpersonal skills coupled with excellent organisational and time management abilities. The ability to inspire confidence in pupils, parents and staff whilst having a keen eye for detail is essential. Experience of the UCAS process would be advantageous as would previous experience in event organisation / coordination and a knowledge of the Higher Education sector and careers programmes.
Due to the nature of the role a degree of flexibility is required and the post-holder will need to demonstrate a commitment to the safeguarding and wellbeing of children and young people.
This position is a predominantly term time only position working 30 hours per week; 39 weeks per year. Please note that 4 of these weeks will be during the school holidays, particularly around the examination results period in August each year.
