We are recruiting - HR / Senior Leadership Team Administrator

7 May 2024

HR / Senior Leadership Team Administrator

The Headteacher and Trustees wish to appoint an HR & SLT Administrator. Our ideal candidate is someone who is organised, meticulous in their work and enjoys variety. This is a key role in the smooth and efficient running of the school, working in particular with the Headteacher and Senior Leadership Team. The role is diverse with a focus on administrative support for the senior team, including, on occasion, the Headteacher, but also to lead on recruitment advertising, coordinating applications and interview arrangements. Lastly the postholder will act as a point of liaison with organisations from which the school receives additional HR support. The successful candidate will have a 'can do' attitude and understand the importance of confidentiality and discretion.

NGHS is an outstanding girls’ grammar school. We were inspected by Ofsted in November 2022 and the school was judged outstanding in every category, placing us in the top 3% of schools. Please read the report here; you will see why I am so proud of our staff and students. We are also the 2020 West Midlands Secondary School of the Year and have recently won a number of accolades rewarding our work in supporting Mental Health, Holocaust Education, the Be Kind Award and the AcSEED Award.

Our governing body is incredibly supportive and experienced. Their ambition for the school keeps us on our toes, but they are passionate about enhancing opportunities for all. The school is financially secure and we have been successful twice within four years for government-funded expansions. We are heavily oversubscribed and hold an annual entrance test. The sixth form is also full and we welcome new students from a number of high schools as well, of course, as our own Year 11s.

Opportunities like this do not arise very often, so I wish you every success with your application. If you’d like to speak to me prior to applying, please contact or call us on 01952 797550. I sincerely hope that you will apply. I know how much time it takes to complete an application and thank you in advance for ensuring that it is with us by the deadline.

The closing date is Friday 17 May at 9am. We look forward to your application.
