Outwood Academy Ormesby are seeking to appoint an enthusiastic, flexible individual who can provide professional and efficient administrative support to the Academy. Outwood Academy Ormesby places students at the centre of everything it does, with a focus on creating a culture of success, a positive climate for learning, and increased student outcomes whilst developing their social and emotional resilience.

As the first point of contact for student enquiries, you are required to provide a comprehensive reception service. You will also provide cover to the main reception greeting all visitors to the Academy and ensuring relevant safeguarding checks are made. You should be well presented with excellent interpersonal skills, enabling you to engage positively with visitors, students and staff alike. You will have excellent administrative and IT skills and be fully competent in the use of all Microsoft Packages, mainly Microsoft Excel and Microsoft Word. You will be extremely well-organised, have the ability to prioritise your demanding workload and be able to work on your own initiative as well as part of a team.

The successful applicant must possess Level 2 qualification (or equivalent) in English and Maths. A flexible approach to work is essential, as the role will require assisting the Administrative team at busy times. Previous experience in an education environment would be an advantage but is not essential.

In line with the Government’s announcement, our academy is closed until further notice. However, we are still busily planning ahead for the forthcoming academic year and are excited about welcoming new recruits to come and join us. In place of academy based interviews, we have set up systems to ensure that alternative options are still available via Skype/video conferencing wherever possible. Every effort will be made to try and accommodate any specific requirements so that no-one is at a disadvantage. Understandably, visits to the school are not possible at present, however we are really keen to ensure that you have as much information to proceed with your application as possible, so if you would like a conversation about either the academy or the position please contact Faye Gorman, HR Assistant via email at who will be happy to assist.

Outwood Grange Academies Trust is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expect staff to share this commitment. All appointments will be subject to a satisfactory enhanced DBS disclosure.

Please note only applications completed on an original Outwood application form will be accepted; incomplete application forms and CVs will not be considered.

We reserve the right to close advertisements early. Advertisements will therefore close at 12 noon, either on the advertised closing date, or the day the decision has been taken to close the advertisement early.

Please note that there is currently a job evaluation exercise being undertaken across the Trust. The salary advertised for this post is therefore subject to job evaluation and may change.
