Part-time Admissions Assistant

St George's, Ascot (SGA) is an independent boarding and day school with approximately 270 pupils aged from 11-18 years about 45% of whom are boarders (full, weekly and flexi) and with a Sixth Form of approximately 80 pupils.

We are a welcoming school with a warm sense of community. Visitors are impressed by our facilities within a beautiful setting and the ambition of our educational provision, but most of all they are delighted by the girls who are truly special.

We are seeking an Admissions Assistant who will be part of a team of three staff, including the Director of Admissions, who has responsibility for managing the team.

This will be a varied and challenging post for a candidate with previous administration experience who wishes to be involved in a professional and busy school community.

The role requires excellent organisational and time management skills, the ability to work as part of a team, work under pressure and the ability to multitask.

The candidate must be proactive, flexible and positive. The applicant requires professionalism and discretion and a strong attention to detail. This is an ideal role for someone who enjoys interacting with people and providing a high level of customer service to prospective parents.

The job incumbent will often be dealing with parents who are anxious or demanding and a high level of understanding, sensitivity and patience is essential along with a degree of humour.

The role involves 20 - 25 hours per week, usually during the school working day 0830 - 1700 and exact hours and days worked are negotiable; working over 4 days is however indicative of the requirement. This is a role that requires working throughout the year i.e. this is not a term time only position. There will be a requirement to work some evenings or weekends to support School and admission related events for which time off will be given in lieu.

The Process:

Letters of application to the Head, Mrs Liz Hewer, should be no more than two sides of A4 and, together with the completed application form and confidential cover sheet should reach the School by 4pm Wednesday 28 February with first round interviews taking place week commencing Monday 4 March and final round interviews shortly thereafter.

Any queries about this post may be made in the first instance to Kerry Bertram, Director of Admissions

St George's School is committed to safeguarding the welfare of children at the School. A review of open source social media and online content will be conducted after candidates have been shortlisted and you may be asked about this at interview. The appointment will be subject to a successful disclosure check from the Disclosure and Barring Service. This will give details of all spent and unspent convictions and other recordable matters. A policy on the recruitment of ex-offenders is available, if required, from the School Office. The supplied references will be taken up and the School may approach previous employers for information to verify particular experience or qualifications. A medical questionnaire will be required to be completed by the successful candidate.
