Contract term: Permanent

This is an exciting opportunity for a proactive, skilled and energetic professional who is able to act as a key point of contact for our Alumni (Old Witleians) and related events, as well as assisting the Development Director in communicating the School’s mission and rising to the challenge of growing our fundraising programmes.

We are looking for an experienced administrator with excellent interpersonal and organisation skills who, working alongside the Development Director and School’s Accountant, can truly influence the continuing success of King Edward’s School.

We are proud of our unique heritage and place among British co-educational independent schools as it incorporates a foundation which supports children who have a need for a boarding style of education.
