Job Advert - Division Information

Priory Education and Children’s Services is a leading company in the UK offering independent behavioural care for commissioners across the UK. With over 100 high quality schools, colleges and homes we focus on making a real and lasting difference for everyone we support.

Job Advert Location Description

Newbury Manor School is a specialist school for 30 young people aged 7 to 19 who have autistic spectrum disorders (ASD). Our tailored approach means we are able to support young people with a wide range of needs, from those who are broadly average in their ability to others, who have more severe learning difficulties.

We provide a total environment where young people are offered safe, secure and predictable surroundings in which they can come to understand their own areas of difficulties and learn skills and techniques in order to overcome them. This ensures that they are able to fulfil their potential socially, academically, physically and spiritually and enable them to rebuild their low self-esteem and self-belief.

We take pride in the environment we can offer. The school is located in a beautiful, quiet, rural location in Somerset in a Georgian manor house, which has a range of outbuildings and extensive grounds. Our ethos was created in the belief that a positive, supportive, achieving culture is essential for good pupil progress. We seek to maximise independence and individual potential so pupils gain the skills to live happy, meaningful and fulfilling lives.

Job Advert Role Description

We are seeking an administrator to join a busy school office where high standards are a must.  The successful candidate must be able to take accurate notes at key meetings and produce reports that reflect the salient points and the professional image of the school. They must also be able to manage day to day financial activities, such as petty cash, placing orders and processing invoices. This role includes an element of reception cover.

The role holder will ensure that all information and documentation is correctly processed in line with policies and procedures in order that regulatory, statutory, compliance and financial requirements are met.

The successful candidate will also handle external and internal enquiries, prioritising as appropriate, meet and greet visitors, and undertake other administrative tasks as required.

The role holder should be educated to GCSE level or equivalent standard, with a high level of English and numeracy. The role holder should also possess excellent keyboard and PC skills. Experience of minute-taking would be an advantage.

We are seeking to cover up to 37.5 hours per week, either term time only or full-year; part-time hours can be considered. We are happy to be flexible on working patterns for the right candidate.  If you would like any further information, or to discuss the role in more detail,  please contact Sue Witt on 01373 814980.
