COLLEGE RECEPTIONIST REQUIRED FOR JANUARY 2017 (or earlier if possible)
A school which “provides outstanding care for pupils” and one in which “The exemplary behaviour of pupils in lessons is a consequence of good teaching”. ISI Inspection Report 2009
This key post offers an exciting opportunity to an enthusiastic, professional and hard-working person who is passionate about working in a school environment and is looking for a challenging role as being the first point of contact for students, parents, teachers and visitors to the school at the ‘front of house’.
The ideal candidate will have excellent interpersonal and organisational skills and be able to deal calmly with the day-to-day pressure that will be evident in running the reception activities in a busy independent school. An excellent telephone manner and the ability to deal effectively with challenging customers are of vital importance, as is the willingness to work flexibly with colleagues in the teaching and non-teaching departments. The salary will be set according to qualifications and experience. There are also very generous fee concessions with respect to staff children being educated at the College.
The post is term time only with three days after the end and before the start of a full term. Half term breaks are working weeks. For the right candidate, there will be an opportunity to make this into a full-time post, (with an appropriate increase in salary), if they are able to provide the necessary skills to fulfil the role of Marketing and Communications Officer. See the Job description for further detail on our website.
