A fantastic opportunity has arisen for a hardworking, organised and motivated Administrative Officer to join our high-performing trust. This would be suitable for somebody with either administrative or events experience with a desire to progress.

The Outwood Institute of Education is a network providing professional development for school staff. It strives to ensure the best outcomes for children in all schools by working together to share outstanding practice and give staff access to world-class professional development. We believe that every child is entitled to a world-class education.

The Outwood Institute of Education work closely with Outwood Grange Academies Trust to host a wide range of events, training and conferences for all OGAT academies and external customers. The Outwood Institute of Education Yorkshire and the Humber is housed in a purpose built conference centre on the grounds of Outwood Academy Adwick, Doncaster.

This role will provide administrative support for the Outwood English Hub and work closely with the hub’s senior leadership team to ensure effective delivery of the hub’s key performance indicators. The role will also provide administrative support to the wider Outwood Institute of Education activity as needed. The role is based at the conference centre at Outwood Academy Adwick, Doncaster but time will also be spent working on other school sites in Yorkshire and Humber as required.

This role involves a range of activities, including:

  • Event management
  • Management of the English Hub calendar
  • Resource preparation
  • Communicating with a wide range of stakeholders both in verbal and written form
  • Providing administration support for the Outwood English Hub, and for other projects and events as required
  • Supporting the production of the English Hub’s monthly reports
  • Supporting the marketing and promotion of the English Hub
  • Travel to schools/academies to carry out the above duties, as required by the English Hub Lead

You will need to be motivated, have excellent organisation and communication skills and be able to prioritise workload and thrive in a fast-paced environment.

Normal working hours are 8.00am – 4.00pm on a Thursday and 8.00am – 3.30pm on a Friday. You will, however, be required to work occasional evenings and Saturdays with prior notice and discussion of availability.

This post is subject to grant funding and therefore is a one-year fixed term contract in the first instance. However, we expect that the post will become permanent as the hub develops.

The successful candidate will be based at the Outwood Institute of Education, Tenter Balk Lane, Adwick, Doncaster, DN6 7EQ with travel to other schools as required.
