This is a unique and exciting opportunity to be one of the first to join a brand new team and create a school with a strong culture of success.  Dixons Trinity Chapeltown will open with 30 Reception children in September 2017 and will rise to its full capacity as an all-through school by 2023.  Working at Dixons Trinity Chapeltown will provide the chance to work with a talented team in order to build an outstanding school from its foundation.  

We currently have an exciting opportunity for the right candidate in the role of School Administrator and Receptionist.  This role is not a typical Receptionist role, as you will be required to be the eyes and ears of a fast paced environment.  The safeguarding of our students is of paramount importance and you will be expected to communicate clearly with the whole school community.

We are seeking to appoint a versatile, conscientious and committed individual.  The key responsibilities of the post holder will be to provide a comprehensive administration service for staff and students.  A flexible working approach is required, ideally accompanied by previous experience of working in a demanding office environment.  

The ideal candidate will be a confident administrator who is able to multi-task and provide a high quality service to visitors and families to the school.

The right candidate will possess:

  • a keen eye for ensuring the safety of our students
  • a sound working knowledge of Microsoft Office
  • a proven ability to work on their own initiative
  • a focus on detail to ensure high quality outputs
  • a high level of communication skills and the ability to relate positively to children and adults
  • the ability to use relevant technology/equipment
  • an alignment to a can-do culture
  • a commitment to the happiness well-being, self-esteem and progress of everyone at the school

We have very high expectations of staff, but we value them highly.  We invest heavily in staff development and a growing school will offer many career opportunities in the coming years. This position may suit someone with ambitions to be a school business / operations manager in the near future.  If you feel this is the right position for you, and you are able to demonstrate excellent interpersonal skills and enjoy a busy school environment, then please visit our website for further details.

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.  Successful applicants will need to undertake a DBS enhanced check.
