Haddon Dene Preparatory School is looking for an enthusiastic and professional School Secretary to join the team. We are an independent, co-educational preparatory school based in Broadstairs, Kent.
You will be the first point of contact for both current and prospective parents so exceptional people skills with an approachable manner are essential. Working closely with the Headmistress, you will be responsible for managing the school events calendar and associated administration, answering telephone and email enquiries, welcoming visitors, as well as processing admissions from first contact through to registration. School expenditure and income will also be processed. Therefore, experience with Sage or other accounting software, as well as CRM databases is advantageous.
You will be the central hub of a very effective, busy team, taking an active part in school life through events such as prize-giving ceremonies and open days.
You will be:
• Enthusiastic and well-presented
• A strong written and verbal communicator
• Organised and forward thinking
• Able to organise your time, prioritise and work to deadlines
Experience working within a school setting is desirable, as is experience reporting to senior management.
Please note, this is a full time role and is not term time only.
Closing date: Friday 18th October 2019 at 10am.
