Outwood Academy Bishopsgarth aims to give children a first-class education and an excellent start in life. Having recently joined the Outwood Grange Academies Trust, we are rapidly improving the school and ensuring a strong emphasis on raising standards, securing academic achievement and raising aspiration. You can help us deliver this transformation and become part of an enthusiastic team building a bright future for its community in the market town of Stockton-on-Tees.
We are seeking to recruit an outstanding Receptionist and Administrator who will be the first point of contact for general enquiries. You will be required to provide a warm, professional and efficient reception service, including greeting visitors to the Academy. You will also provide a strong administrate support to the school; undertaking a range of general clerical and administration duties including typing/word processing. Experience in computer packages such as word and excel is essential.
To be successful, you should possess a Level 2 qualification (or equivalent) in English and Maths. You must have excellent interpersonal skills, in order to allow you to engage with callers and visitors to the Academy, students and staff professionally, efficiently and sensitively. A flexible approach to work is essential, in order to assist the Administration team at busy times and occasionally adjusting hours to cover after school events. Previous experience in an education environment would be an advantage but is not essential.
The Academy benefits from being part of the Outwood Family of Schools, which affords opportunities for staff to work and progress across several schools if desired.
Visits to the Academy are encouraged and welcomed.
Outwood Academy Bishopsgarth is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children. All offers of employment will be subject to enhanced DBS Check.
