Wonderful opportunity for a highly talented School Secretary to join this fabulous private school near St Albans. This is a rare opportunity to support the Head and member of the Senior Management Team and ensure that their office runs smoothly. This is a top school in beautiful surroundings and they are looking for someone who will develop with them over the long term. You will have a natural way with people and will be super organised with excellent MS Office skills. The dynamic Head needs support in all areas so your ability to keep calm in pressurised situations will be key. It is super important that you have experience of working within the education system so you already understand the intricacies of working with parents, staff and pupils. Your responsibilities will be varied from:
Being a true gatekeeper and managing the Heads time
Extensive diary management
Being the eyes and ears for the Head and Senior Management Team
Liaising with parent and pupils with the utmost discretion
Good financial skills and managing spreadsheets
This is a full time position (not just during term time) and the hours are 8-5pm. This is a fast paced environment where the volume of work is considerable so being able to prioritise and manage others will be key.
