An exciting opportunity has arisen for a motivated and enthusiastic Administrative

Assistant to join our busy Business Support office at Uffculme School. You will be

part of our Business Support Team, delivering HR and Finance services to Uffculme

School and Uffculme Primary.

You will be supporting the work of the two Administrators and the School Business

Manager. The role is varied and includes placing orders with suppliers, responding

to emails, administering the school’s cashless payment system and dealing with

general queries. You will also have the opportunity to assist with HR processes

including preparing interview packs and undertaking pre-employment checks for

successful candidates. You will be a key person to respond to general queries from

staff and parents and will be expected to provide a positive and welcoming response.

We are looking for a candidate who is proactive, enthusiastic and confident in

communicating effectively with a wide range of people. You will play an instrumental

role in the day to day running of the Business Support Office as well as providing

support to the Administrators. This is an ideal role for someone who is interested in

developing a career in administration.

You should have excellent communication skills, be flexible, adaptable and be able to

prioritise tasks. The role will require both independent working and the ability to be

a team player.

While previous school administration experience is not essential, candidates should

be experienced in working in a busy professional office environment. You should be

proficient and confident with ICT. An up to date knowledge of Microsoft systems

including Teams would be an advantage, but full training will be provided to the

successful candidate.

The role is based at Uffculme School and is typically 5 hours a day, 5 days a week;

start times can be flexible and a working pattern will be agreed with the post-holder

on appointment.

We can offer a competitive salary, a Local Government pension, free onsite parking,

and discounted membership at our onsite gym. We are supportive of learning and

development and encourage our staff to broaden their skills and knowledge and

encourage continuous CPD.

If you are looking for a varied administration role in a supportive organisation, then

we would love to hear from you.
