We would like to appoint a talented and committed Administrative Assistant to join The Hayfield School to become part of our team. The successful candidate will have excellent communication skills, be confident and organised with a calm and composed approach in a busy environment and must have strong IT skills.  Experience of SIMS would be an advantage but is not essential as training will be provided. You will provide an efficient and professional admin service to students, staff, visitors and parents.  This will include 2 days per week medical support including administering first aid as well as data input, reception duties and examinations support at busy times.

Candidates should be emotionally intelligent, have excellent interpersonal skills and be a team player with the ability to multi-task. We are looking for someone who has experience of working in a complex, busy environment, is friendly and approachable and is capable of working independently using their own initiative.

We do have high expectations of staff and students, but we also expect them to be individuals who demonstrate a strong work ethic and kindness and decency at every level.  This is because we want all students to make really good progress and leave school with wonderful memories of their experiences.  We want our staff to enjoy their work and really see the value in what they do.  In return we seek every opportunity to develop staff.  The Hayfield School is a great place to work where all colleagues are supported and valued, parents are supportive and the pupils are so eager to achieve. We do have a track record of excellent outcomes but we are not resting on our laurels.  Indeed, we are embracing a changing educational landscape.

The school is situated in Auckley near Robin Hood Airport.  It is a lovely part of Doncaster and really easy to get to and from.  Our staff come from as far away as North Leeds, Sheffield, Scunthorpe and Nottinghamshire.  It really is worth the journey.

If you are interested in applying please complete an application form which can be found on the school website.   Please contact our HR Manager, Paula Kynman, 01302 770589, pky@thehayfieldschool.co.uk for further details.
