About the role
The roles provide access to the Local Government Pension Scheme (LGPS).
The Diocese of Chichester Academy Trust (DCAT) is a growing academy Trust established in 2014. The Trust is currently responsible for nine academies educating over 3,500 pupils in both East and West Sussex across both primary and secondary phases. A small number of schools are scheduled to join the Trust during the next academic year, and the Trust is in advanced conversations with a number of other schools wishing to convert to academy status.
We aim to be a Trust in which:
● All children achieve and maximise their potential;
● All schools improve and perform above national expectations;
● All staff are supported and actively engage in continuing professional development;
● The distinct Christian identity of each of our academies is maintained and celebrated.
Schools joining DCAT retain their own unique identity but benefit from a range of shared services and opportunities. Individual Local Governing Bodies, including parent representatives, continue to play an important role in the life of the school.
Due to the retirement of the long-standing post holder, a unique opportunity has arisen for a Senior Administrator. The role of Senior Administrator is broad and varied, and the postholder will have considerable opportunity to develop the role. Responsible to the Head of Operations, you will provide a high level, professional administrative and PA support to the Trust’s Senior Leadership team, including the Chief Executive and Deputy Chief Executives to enable them to operate effectively in their roles.
Whilst you will be primarily based at our office in Eastbourne, you will be expected to visit the academies and the Hove office to attend meetings. Due to the broad and rural location of some academies, candidates must be able to demonstrate the ability to travel, and ideally would hold a full driving licence and have access to a private vehicle for work. Mileage will be paid at the HMRC approved rates.
You will ideally have had relevant experience of working in an adminstrative, office based role. The successful candidate will have excellent administration, time management skills, be self-motivated and able to work under pressure. You must be numerate, have excellent communication skills and confident and competent in using Microsoft Office.
The role will be full time 37 hours per week, term time only. There may be the requirement to work up to two weeks per year, as agreed, during school closure periods. This will be discussed with the successful candidate.
We welcome the opportunities to discuss the role with potential candidates. Please contact Jo Saunders, Head of Operations (email@example.com) to arrange a suitable time.
Applications should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org by 8am on Wednesday, 8 July. Interviews are provisionally scheduled to take place early during the week commencing 13 July.
Your starting salary will be pro rata if the above position is part-time or term-time only.
