King Edward VI School LichfieldLichfield

We are seeking to appoint a confident and caring First Aider/Receptionist to join our Student Reception, taking a lead role in providing First Aid support to students and staff. The post is situated in our Student Services Hub alongside colleagues in a busy shared space.

There will be substantial administration involved in the role and whilst experience in a school is not essential, we are looking for someone who is used to operating IT systems in a front of house setting. The successful candidate will be a strong administrator who possesses excellent IT skills and who is highly efficient and organised. Ideally they will have experience of using SIMS. The post requires you to be able to deal sensitively with a variety of situations with students, staff, parents and external organisations. An ability to remain calm in stressful situations and a flexible approach with highly accurate written communication skills are essential.

The job requires ensuring care plans are fully implemented & updated and liaising with students, parents, colleagues and other agencies about both general and medical matters. Keeping up to date electronic accident records and reports is also part of the role so a basic knowledge of health and safety matters would be ideal.

It is essential that the postholder holds a full First Aid certificate or has prior experience in a similar role and a commitment to immediate training.

The postholder will also be responsible for taking any external post to the Post Office at the end of the day so a valid driving licence and daily use of a vehicle is necessary.

The working hours for this role are 8.30am to 4pm, Monday to Thursday, with a thirty-minute break for lunch each day.

The job description is generic but there will be every opportunity as part of the interview process to discuss this in detail.
