School Administrator

Posted 26 February by Randstad Education Limited Easy Apply Ended

Are you an experienced School Administrator who has a good knowledge of the School Information Management System (SIMS)? Are you a good team-worker, able to multi-task and assist in various activities in a busy primary school office? If you answered yes to these questions then please get in touch!

Randstad Education are currently assisting a primary school in Knowsley Local Authority to recruit for an administrator for a 12-month maternity cover. The role is term-time only, starting after the Easter holidays in April 2018. The role is full-time 36 hours from Monday to Friday, from 8.30am to 4.30pm, but this could be 9am to 5pm instead as the school can be flexible depending on your availability. Applicants MUST have previous experience of working in an educational establishment, as you will be expected to hit the ground running with minimal training and deliver a high standard of work in a fast-paced environment.

We ask that you have:

- SIMS experience gained from working in a school office

- General administrative skills to a high level, including attention to detail

- Excellent communication skills, both orally and in writing, and the ability to offer great customer service to staff, parents and external parties

- The ability to work with high levels of tact, confidentiality and discretion

This is a great opportunity to work as part of a committed school team, with one other administrator and reporting to the Business Manager. Responsibilities might include (but this is by no means an exhaustive list):

- Processing of registers and recording attendance

- Visitor procedures and maintaining the single central record

- Invoice and order processing

- General reception duties like telephone, post and email

Our staff have a well-deserved reputation as being the best in Merseyside and as a reward for your hard work and commitment you will benefit from:

- a dedicated, professional and friendly specialist 'School Support Services' consultant and a branch with 24 hour on-call facility

- competitive rates of pay paid weekly, which are fully compliant under the Agency Workers Regulations (AWR, 2011)

- commitment to your continuing professional development through free training

- 'recommend a friend' bonus worth up to £300

- the flexibility to work when and where you want through our network of branches

- being part of a highly respected supply team and developing your own reputation within it, especially through various rewards like 'Candidate of the Term'
