About the role


This would suit a student studying for an Administrative / Financial Qualification who would like / requires hands-on school office experience or someone who wishes to return to work from a career break and would like to "freshen-up" their office skills.

We have successfully accommodated work experience placements previously and are looking to continue to offer a supportive environment in which to help suitable candidates develop their administrative / financial skills and be able to move into a paid position, whilst providing our school office with an extra pair of hands.

Hours available: Minimum 10/12 hours worked over 2 days

Days per week: Negotiable with successful applicant

Daily hours to be worked between 9.00am - 4.00pm

The successful candidate will be given an opportunity to learn and practise a wide range of administrative, financial and clerical duties. Ideally you will already have some IT skills which can be further developed during your placement with us. Team working as well as working on your own initiative will be required.

Enthusiasm and flexibility are a must. The successful candidate will need to remain calm under pressure, have a sense of humour and an ability to thrive in a busy ever-changing environment. If this work experience opportunity sounds of interest to you we would be delighted to hear from you.
