Administration Assistant (Primary)
Grade 4 - 37 hours Permanent
Darnhall Primary School, Sandyhill Road, Winsford, Cheshire, CW7 1JL
The Headteacher and Governors of Darnhall Primary School wish to appoint a well-organised, experienced, motivated and flexible receptionist / admin assistant to work in our busy school office for 37 hours a week. The school is a split site school and this position is working in the Key Stage 2 school office. The successful person will be expected to be able to work from their own initiative as well as under the direction of the Attendance and Admin Manager.
The successful candidate will be the initial point of contact for visitors and will deal with enquiries from parents/carers, children and members of the public so a cheerful, warm and welcoming disposition is essential. Excellent interpersonal skills are required as well as administrative skills and an ability to use Microsoft Excel and Word. The successful candidate also needs good organisational skills, the ability to work under pressure as well as a good sense of humour. Experience of working in a school office with SIMS and other school’s applications would be an advantage but is not essential as training can be provided.
Our school community places the highest priority on keeping our children safe. Applicants for all posts will be subject to stringent vetting and induction processes. The holder of this post will be required to work with children under the age of 18 in a position of trust, and is, therefore, exempt from the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974.
