Working as part of The GORSE Academies Trust, The Ruth Gorse Academy ensures that students receive an outstanding education that focuses on aspiration, high expectations and personalisation. Together these non-negotiable values instil in young people a self-belief that enables students to access the highest standard of higher education provision and employment. We believe that poverty and deprivation should, in no way, limit either the quality of a young person’s educational experience or the levels of achievement to which those students are able to rise. In July 2017 the exceptional nature of our work at The Ruth Gorse Academy was recognised by Ofsted; we would encourage you to read the Outstanding Ofsted report which is available on our website.
We are seeking to appoint a skilled, motivated and committed Personal Assistant (PA) to work alongside the Principal and Senior Leadership Team of the school. This is a fantastic opportunity for an experienced administrator, secretary or personal assistant who is seeking a new opportunity. As a Personal Assistant, you will work closely with the Principal to provide administrative support, usually on a one-to-one basis. You will help the Principal make the best use of their time by dealing with varied administrative tasks including maintaining diaries, arranging appointments, organising meetings, booking transport and accommodation as well as liaising with staff, customers and local suppliers.
We are looking for a friendly, confident and professional individual who has a strong secretarial or administrative background with proven organisational ability. You will have excellent organisation and communication skills, and take pride in the presentation and accuracy of your work. You will be pro- active with a high degree of initiative and the ability to multi-task and remain calm under pressure. You will be fully competent in using a wide variety of software packages. You will also have experience of implementing and maintaining procedures and administrative systems.
Led by Sir John Townsley the nationally renowned GORSE Academies Trust is strong and united. As a professional within the Trust you will have regular opportunities to work in partnership with colleagues within the other secondary academies and across phase; at secondary level three of the four secondary academies have been graded by Ofsted as Outstanding and two secondary academies have achieved the World Class Schools Quality Mark Award.
