PART-TIME ADMISSIONS ASSISTANT

Required to start as soon as possible

St George’s, Ascot (SGA) is an independent boarding and day school with approximately
270 pupils aged from 11-18 years about 45% of whom are boarders (full, weekly and flexi)
and with a Sixth Form of approximately 80 pupils.

We are a welcoming school with a warm sense of community. Visitors are impressed by our
facilities within a beautiful setting and the ambition of our educational provision, but most
of all they are delighted by the girls who are truly special.

We are seeking an Admissions Assistant who will be part of a team of three staff, including
the Director of Admissions, who has responsibility for managing the team.

This will be a varied and challenging post for a candidate with previous administration
experience who wishes to be involved in a professional and busy school community.

The role requires excellent organisational and time management skills, the ability to work as
part of a team, work under pressure and the ability to multitask.

The candidate must be proactive, flexible and positive. The applicant requires professionalism and discretion and a strong attention to detail. This is an ideal role for someone who enjoys interacting with people and providing a high level of customer service to prospective parents.

The job incumbent will often be dealing with parents who are anxious or demanding and a
high level of understanding, sensitivity and patience is essential along with a degree of humour.

The role involves 25 – 32 hours per week, usually during the school working day 0830 – 1700
and exact hours and days worked are negotiable. This is a role that requires working
throughout the year i.e. this is not a term time only position. There will be a requirement to
work some evenings or weekends to support School and Admission related events for which
time off will be given in lieu.

The salary for this role will be between £16,000 – 20,500 per annum depending on the hours
agreed. The successful candidate will be auto-enrolled into the The Pensions Trust pension
scheme if eligible.
