Chiswick School is looking to recruit a high-calibre individual to join them as a Personal Assistant working with the Head Teacher and Senior Leadership Team. You will be required to provide a confidential and personal administrative service, including managing the busy diary of the Head Teacher, taking minutes at confidential meetings and effectively prioritising a multi-faceted workload. The role requires absolute confidentiality and the use of diplomacy and tact at all times. You must be an excellent communicator, both orally and in writing, and have exceptional administrative and organisation skills.  

Previous experience of working within a school environment would be an advantage. Flexibility is crucial to meeting the demands of a large school, as is the ability to build effective relationships with families, students, staff, Governors and the wider school community.
