Studio West

NE5 2SZ.

37 hours per week, all year round
Required for September 2021.

Studio West is an exciting studio school, which opened in September 2014. As part of Kenton School’s Academy Trust, Studio West cater for around 400 students aged between 11 and 19 with student numbers increasing year on year. We are expected to reach 650 at full capacity. Rated “Good” by Ofsted, Studio West offers students an innovative and bespoke curriculum with an emphasis on employability and life skills. We have close working relationships with our business partners and our mission is to make sure that every student who leaves Studio West, does so with a university place, an apprenticeship or employment.

Due the school’s success, we are in a position to expand our administrative team to create this new role. 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.

If you have commitment, interpersonal skills and flexibility to succeed in our team, we want to hear from you. In return, we offer fantastic developmental possibilities due to working as part of Kenton Schools Academy Trust, and our forward thinking management and staff working together to offer the best available chances for our students.
