St James comprises three independent day schools educating over 900 pupils aged 4-18: the Prep School and Senior Girls’ School are located in Hammersmith and the Senior Boys’ School is located in Ashford, Surrey. The schools offer a distinctive philosophical education, united with a philosophical approach to academic excellence.
We are looking to recruit a Personal Assistant to provide high quality administrative and secretarial support to the Bursar. The post carries wide ranging and varied responsibilities working across both sites, as well as taking responsibility for line-managing the Reception function at the School site in Earsby Street.
To be successful, you must be flexible, calm, loyal, discreet and be able to work efficiently under pressure. Applications are invited from experienced PAs with very strong interpersonal, administrative, organisational and communication skills. Although previous experience in a school or other education establishment is not essential, it would be a distinct advantage.
Hours are Monday to Friday, 08:00 to 16:30, although there may be requirements in busy periods during term time to work additional hours.
