Required for the end of January 2022 (or as soon as possible), we seek to appoint an ambitious and innovative Office Manager to embrace the challenge of managing a busy school front office with its tireless and dedicated staff. This is a role that will change by the day, with no two days being the same in terms of the pulls on resource from parents, visitors, students and staff requests. It will be the Office Manager’s role to manage these demands and ensure the school office is run in a smooth and efficient manner.

We promise you high challenge and support, genuine teamwork and responsibility. Hetton School is an attractive proposition for someone wishing to come and make their mark and to join our rapid journey of improvement.

Hetton School is an expanding 11-16 mixed comprehensive school on the southeast outskirts of Sunderland and close to Durham. The school is a vibrant community, rich in extra-curricular experiences, including Cricket, Girl’s Football and Rugby Academies. Judged ‘Requires Improvement’ in its last inspection in January 2018, the school has made huge strides in the last two years. The school moved into a brand new building in September 2016 resulting in excellent facilities for the students and staff alike.

As a school, we believe in cultivating a growth Mindset in young people. By developing their resilience, love of learning and by finding inspiration in the success of others, they learn to embrace challenge and aspire to successful careers in a wide variety of areas. This philosophy pervades our school, and it is very important that the students meet this positive, inclusive and nurturing approach with everyone that they meet. It is vital then, that the Office Manager is an integral part of the push towards excellence in every department in the school.

The position is subject to an Enhanced DBS check and a medical suitability check. Any offer of employment is conditional on the satisfactory results of both of these checks. The school is open to applicants from highly qualified and committed individuals, including those seeking flexible working arrangements.
