About you

Are you a friendly person who prides themselves in their organisation skills? Do you strive for the best in everything you do, and think you could make a positive difference to lives of autistic and/or neurodivergent children? If this sounds like you, and you’re seeking a rewarding job role, we are currently recruiting for an Administration Assistant to join our growing Education staff team.

Working independently and as part of a team, you will support the day-to-day running of the school administration office and reception area. You will need to be people-centred with good communication and interpersonal skills, enabling you to build positive relationships with both staff, pupils and visitors. 

Whilst we value experience, it is not essential for candidates to have previously worked in the education sector, or with autistic individuals – all we ask is that you are hard-working, willing to learn and committed to the development of the school and playing a part in its success.
