We are seeking to appoint someone to assist us with Reception and Student Services.  You will need to be positive, responsible and flexible and be willing and able to provide valuable support to our existing administrative team.  

The successful candidate will be able to provide a professional and efficient customer service, creating a welcoming atmosphere for staff, students and all visitors to the school.  You will be required to deal with a variety of reception tasks including welcoming visitors, answering calls and dealing with student enquiries. In addition to this, you will perform a range of administrative tasks such as photocopying, helping to prepare resources and sorting post. 

You must be mature and understand about the importance of confidentiality and safeguarding in taking on such a role.  People are more important than posts to us so if you think you would fit into an upbeat and diverse team and enjoy the fact that no two days are the same, we may be able to offer your ideal role.  

Wye School opened in September 2013 with a single intake of Year 7 students who sat the school’s first GCSE exams last year and achieved excellent grades. L September the school welcomed our first 6th formers.  This is a comprehensive (mixed ability) school.  In June 2015, Ofsted praised our, ‘very vibrant and strong leadership … clear and aspirational vision,’ and, ‘high level of ambition for the students and the school.’

Applications will be considered on receipt. Suitable candidates will be interviewed on receipt of application and Wye School reserves the right to withdraw the position if an early appointment is made.  If you are interested, please send a current CV to caroline.castle@wyeschool.org.uk.
