Salary – Vyners Grade 6 -  Actual salary - £23,817 pa
39.75 hours per week.  Term time + 5 INSET days (193 days)

Our aim is simply stated, we want to be an outstanding school in every sense of the word and we want to be confident that ‘hand on heart’ 100% of our students get a better deal here than they would in any other school.

Our school values: Community, Aspiration, Respect and Endeavour, underpin everything we do.  At Vyners, we pride ourselves on the positive relationships between staff and students, that exist in the school and the strong sense of being part of a happy community.  We are a genuinely comprehensive school, believing that all students bring their own talents to our community.  Our committed staff value our students equally and take great care to make sure that every one of them is happy, secure and successful.  We believe that it is because of this approach that we are over-subscribed and that our students become high achievers.

We are seeking to appoint an experienced and professional Personal Assistant to be responsible for ensuring a first class confidential and discrete administrative service to the Headteacher.  This role will be involved in all aspects of the efficient running of an ‘outstanding’ school and there will be significant contact with ‘sibling’ schools in the broader multi academy trust.

Vyners School and Vanguard Learning Trust have an exciting and dynamic future and this post is a vital part of the team working to ensure we meet the highest standards.

Previous experience of working in a school is desirable but not essential.

The successful candidate will:

  • Have exceptional interpersonal skills
  • Be capable of working collaboratively with a wide range of people, sometimes within sensitive/pressurised situations
  • Be capable of working independently and showing initiative to resolve problems
  • Be organised, hardworking and energetic, with a good sense of humour
  • Be respectful of the confidential nature of the role.
  • Promote and safeguard the welfare of students at the school and to act as an appropriate role model for young people.
