You will need a proven track record of working in an office environment, with a careful eye for detail, a highly organised approach, and excellent customer care skills. You should enjoy working as part of a wider team and be dedicated to the needs of the school and, most importantly, the children.

Previous experience of working in a school environment and knowledge of SIMS systems is desirable, as well as a current first aid certificate. However, training will be provided for the right candidate.
