Job/Person Summary

The Hamble School is a forward thinking and thriving school. We pride ourselves on the strength of our staff and student relationships and have a strong community and inclusive ethos. We are highly aspirational for our students and believe in the highest standards of teaching and learning along with a strong sense of team work. This philosophy is embodied by our strapline of ‘Achieving Excellence Together’. Under the leadership of our Headteacher, we are making rapid progress in all aspects of school life and it is therefore a very exciting time to join us.

We are looking to appoint a Headteacher’s PA. The main purpose of this role will be to provide a comprehensive and fully confidential secretarial and personal assistant support service to the Headteacher, and to be, in all matters, the principle contact between the Headteacher and all persons, both in and outside of the school.

We are seeking a professional, confident and resilient individual who will work in a calm, considered and proactive manner. Candidates must have the ability to communicate effectively at all levels with staff, parents and external contacts. They should also be able to work independently and be able to lead projects within the school.

The successful candidate will need to have strong inter-personal and excellent organisational skills. Tact, diplomacy and sound judgment will need to be exercised in all areas of the role. A good sense of humour is a must too!

Applicants must be able to work autonomously, under pressure and have the ability to effectively prioritise the demands of the role. This position requires undertaking the organisation of various school events and aspects of marketing the school within the local community. Willingness to work flexible hours to attend these events and other school meetings will be required.

Candidates must have a good standard of education. Experience of using Outlook, Word and PowerPoint is essential as the role requires minute taking and the ability to produce a wide range of documents. This role also requires highly developed written and oral communication skills, in particular accurate punctuation, grammar and proof-reading skills. Experience and understanding of a school setting would be advantageous but not essential.

In return, we can offer you a positive and optimistic working environment focused on student welfare, progress and high standards of achievement and behaviour and opportunities to further develop your skills and experience within a well-equipped campus with excellent leisure and sport facilities available to staff.

To apply please complete a support staff application form which can be located at the top of this page. Applications should be returned electronically to Karen Willis, HR Officer, kwillis@thehambleschool.co.uk If you currently work in a school, please ensure one of your references is from your current Headteacher.

We look forward to receiving your application.
