Part Time
Are you an experienced School Administrator or a School Business Manager looking for a new challenge? Do you have SIMS and FMS experience? Are you a self-starter, able to work on your own initiative in a small but busy primary school office? If you answered yes to these questions then please get in touch! We are currently assisting a primary school in the Runcorn area to recruit for a Business Manager, however the role could be covered by a senior administrator looking for a step-up. The role is term-time only, starting in September 2017, and could be a temporary to permanent position for the right person. You are expected to have a working knowledge of the School Information Management System (SIMS), and especially FMS (the finance module). Applicants MUST have previous experience of working in an educational establishment, as you will be expected to hit the ground running with no training and deliver a high standard of work in a fast-paced environment.

We ask that you have:

- SIMS / FMS experience gained from working in a school

- The ability to work alone under your own initiative in close collaboration with the headteacher and governors

- Excellent communication skills, both orally and in writing

- The ability to work with high levels of tact, confidentiality and discretion

This is a great opportunity to work as part of a small committed school team building a great reputation. Responsibilities will include (but this is by no means an exhaustive list):

- Processing of registers

- Visitor procedures

- Daily cash handling and banking

- General reception duties like telephone, post and email

- Typing letters

- Recording staff absences and changes to teaching staff personnel records

- Ordering goods and services

- Paying invoices

- Payroll returns and overtime returns

- Maintaining the Single Central Register

Our staff have a well-deserved reputation as being the best in Merseyside and as a reward for your hard work and commitment you will benefit from:

- a dedicated, professional and friendly specialist School Support Services consultant and a branch with 24 hour on-call facility

- competitive rates of pay paid weekly, which are fully compliant under the Agency Workers Regulations (AWR, 2011)

- commitment to your continuing professional development through free training

- 'recommend a friend' bonus worth up to £300

- the flexibility to work when and where you want through our network of branches

- being part of a highly respected supply team and developing your own reputation within it, especially through various rewards like 'Candidate of the Term'

If your application is deemed to be suitable, an interview would be offered immediately and you could then be referred to the school for a further interview with the Headteacher.
