We have an exciting opportunity for an experienced Administrator to join the support team at our successful, well established maintained Academy. The post holder will be responsible for providing general administration support to staff in the school, as well as liaising with parents and students on a regular basis.

To succeed in the role you will be a competent administrator with a strong team working ethic and excellent IT skills. Ability to communicate effectively with students, staff and parents, work to deadlines and remain calm in a busy environment are all essential for the post. Experience of working with SIMS and/or in a school environment would be advantageous.

Woodkirk Academy has a proud record in academic, intellectual, social and sporting, musical, dramatic and community developments. Our latest Ofsted report (November 2013) quoted ‘‘the quality of care and quality of pastoral care and welfare arrangements are outstanding”. We enjoy an excellent reputation as an employer and our ethos and working practices have allowed us to earn and retain Investors in People Gold Status in June 2015 - “People discuss their pride in working at Woodkirk; they describe it as the best place to work”.
