Receptionist/Administrative Assistant

We would like to appoint a talented and committed receptionist to join The Hayfield School to become part of our administration team. The ideal candidate will have excellent communication skills, be confident and organised with a calm and composed approach in a busy environment. The successful candidate must have strong IT skills particularly in Microsoft Office.  Training will be provided on our management information system.  Candidates should be emotionally intelligent, have excellent interpersonal skills and be a team player. The successful candidate will provide an efficient and professional service to students, staff, parents and visitors as well as providing administrative support in a variety of areas.  The successful candidate will be part of the school’s first aid team.  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.
