Administrative Assistant

20 hours per week, term time plus 5 training days
N3: £8,311 to £8,477 pa (actual)

Studio West is an exciting studio school, which opened in September 2014. As part of Kenton School’s Academy, Studio West cater for around 300 students aged between 11 and 19, and are currently over-subscribed for year 7.

At Studio West, in addition to mainstream qualifications (including GCSEs, A Levels, and Occupational and professional qualifications), we offer an innovative and personalised curriculum for every student-focused on developing key employability and life skills required by employers. Much of our curriculum is delivered through project based learning, working alongside our business partners and our mission is to make sure that every student who leaves Studio West does so with a university or college place, an apprenticeship or a job.

Given the school’s success, we are in a position to expand our administrative team to create this new role. Supporting the Administrator, the role will involve working between our busy Reception and providing general administrative support including typing, photocopying, dealing with queries both face to face and on the telephone from students, parents/carers and other stakeholders.

We are seeking applications from candidates with previous experience working effectively in an office/administrative environment combined with high levels of literacy and numeracy skills (evidenced by a GCSE Grade 4 (formerly C) or above in English and Mathematics or be able to offer evidence of commensurate work experience). Your excellent IT skills with the ability to use Microsoft Word to an intermediate level and Excel to a basic level will be combined with excellent interpersonal and communication skills. Previous experience working in a school setting would be an advantage but is not essential.

In return, you will play a key role in embedding Studio West as a school of choice in the local community with the support of not only the Studio West team, but the wider Trust. If you think you have the experience, skills and abilities to be successful in this role, further details can be found in our Application pack including job description and person specification
