Corby Technical School are seeking to appoint an experienced, positive and proactive Senior Administrator who will be responsible for the running of the school office and all administrative duties. The role is central to the service provided to the school and the post holder will become a source of information and a point of contact for pupils, parents and staff. There is a strong emphasis on the flexible proactive management of tasks and accurate handling of sensitive data, requiring excellent attention to detail. 

The ideal candidate will already have experience of leading a team of people, but the prime requirement is that they are personable, friendly, adaptable and able to work both within a team and under their own initiative.  Key to this role is the ability to respond to the demands of a busy school environment.  Experience of working in a school is not essential.  This will be a busy but demanding position and we will be looking to recruit someone who is able to quickly evaluate what needs doing and respond accordingly.

The person appointed will demonstrate a good standard of education, and be able to communicate at all levels, with students, staff and parents.   The hours of work will be 8.00am to 4.00pm Monday to Thursday and 8.00am to 3.30pm on Friday.  This is a full-time contract with hours equating to 1 additional week to be worked flexibly across school holidays.
