Required for September 2023

Our ‘Good School’ (OFSTED, September 2021) is looking to recruit an enthusiastic and highly motivated school administrator. This is an exciting time in the journey of our school; and as such we are seeking to appoint the right candidate to enable us to move forwards in our next chapter.

Cardinal Wiseman is a small Secondary school with a community of staff and pupils that show care and compassion for each other. As a Catholic school we place our value in the person, recognising that each life is unique and precious.

The ideal candidate will need to be confident and able to communicate effectively. You will need to have excellent administration skills and have the ability to work effectively as part of a busy team.

We need a committed team player with excellent organisational skills - with the ability to work independently, use ICT efficiently and manage time effectively and prioritise workload with high levels of drive and resilience.

The successful candidate will have the ability to work in a busy and varied environment whilst remaining calm, friendly, and respectful towards pupils, staff, parents/carers, and visitors. They will be efficient, reliable, and highly competent in using ICT packages and have the ability to work on their own initiative. We are looking for an enthusiastic, self-motivated and flexible person with excellent interpersonal skills. Applicants will need to have good IT skills, knowledge of SIMS desirable, but not essential.

If you are interested in this role and would like to request an informal visit, please contact Sue Woodley via email at

This post is covered by Part 7 of the Immigration Act (2016) and therefore the ability to speak fluent and spoken English is an essential requirement for this role.
