Receptionist and Admin Assistant (Term Time Only): Primary & Secondary phase

Exciting opportunity to join a pioneering new school in Enfield, north London. 

Ark John Keats is an all-through school in the London Borough of Enfield. Our intake is mixed and comprehensive in nature. We opened our doors to our first two Reception classes in September 2013 and our first cohort of year 7 pupils joined us in September 2014. The academy will reach full capacity in 2020 with just under two thousand pupils. The academy was judged to outstanding in all areas in our Ofsted inspection of April 2015.

We are now looking to recruit a Receptionist and Administrative Assistant, to work in a Term Time Only post, to work primarily in Primary but also in the Secondary phase. In this varied and important role you will be the first point of contact for parents, pupils and visitors, and provide administrative support to the academy across a range of areas. You will be required to uphold the vision and ethos of the academy at all times and provide an excellent level of customer service. 

This is a great opportunity to work across both Primary and Secondary phases at Ark John Keats Academy and enjoy the variety that this role brings. This is a busy and varied role that would suit a confident, adaptable person looking for an energetic role in a school environment. 

Ark John Keats Academy is a school that breaks the mould by providing pupils from relatively disadvantaged backgrounds with a type and standard of education previously the preserve of the best fee-paying schools. You will be part of a team that is hugely committed, energetic and incredibly enthusiastic about the journey ahead.
