Due to an extension of the English Hub project, a fantastic opportunity has arisen for a hardworking,
organised and motivated Administrative Officer to join our high performing trust. This would be
suitable for somebody with either administrative or events experience with a desire to progress.

The Outwood Institute of Education is a network providing professional development for school
staff. It strives to ensure the best outcomes for children in all schools by working together to share
outstanding practice and give staff access to world class professional development. We believe that
every child is entitled to a world class education.

The Outwood Institute of Education works closely with Outwood Grange Academies Trust to host a
wide range of events, training and conferences for all OGAT academies and external customers. The
Outwood Institute of Education Yorkshire and the Humber is housed in a purpose built conference
centre on the grounds of Outwood Academy Adwick, Doncaster.

Outwood English Hub supports schools in its region to improve the teaching of early reading. The
hub has recently been granted the role of ‘delivery hub’ by the Department for Education and will
now be administering additional funding to schools.

This role will provide administrative support for the Outwood English Hub and work closely with
the hub’s senior leadership and administration team to ensure effective delivery of the hub’s key
performance indicators. The role will also provide administrative support to the wider Outwood
Institute of Education activity as needed.

The role is based at the conference centre at Outwood Academy Adwick, Doncaster but time will
also be spent working on other school sites in Yorkshire and Humber as required.

This role involves a range of activities, including:
- Event management;
- Management of the English Hub calendar;
- Resource preparation;
- Communicating with a wide range of stakeholders both in verbal and written form;
- Providing administration support for the Outwood English Hub, and for other projects and events
as required;
- Supporting the production of the English Hub’s monthly reports;
- Supporting the marketing and promotion of the English Hub; and
- Travel to schools / academies to carry out the above duties, as required by the English Hub Lead.

You will need to be motivated, have excellent organisation and communication skills and be able to
prioritise workload and thrive in a fast-paced environment.

Normal working hours are 8:00am – 4:00pm on a Thursday and 8:00am – 3:30pm on a Friday.
You will, however, be required to work occasional evenings and Saturdays with prior notice and
discussion of availability.

This post is subject to grant funding and therefore is a 1 year fixed term contract in the first
instance. However, we expect that the post will become permanent as the hub develops.

The successful candidate will be based at the Outwood Institute of Education, Tenter Balk Lane,
Adwick, Doncaster, DN6 7EQ with travel to other schools as required.

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.

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.
