Twyford employs 120 staff (a mix of full-time, part-time, term-time only and term-time (+) only) and engages a number of self-employed peripatetic visiting music teachers. The success of the School and wellbeing of staff lies largely down to cooperation, trust and respect both between peers and the management team. Regular meetings and a newly launched appraisal system help to build a culture that is supportive and nurturing. Your colleagues will be supportive, friendly and welcoming and every day will bring new challenges and adventures.
Lunch (during term-time) and tea/coffee and biscuits are provided free of charge, and we have access to an Employee Assistance Programme covering financial, mental and physical wellbeing. Additionally, we have death in service and income protection insurance as standard.
During the school holidays the site remains a busy environment with the letting of the site to residential schools and holiday camps.
The postholder must be able to work in a busy environment, satisfying often conflicting requirements in a quiet, efficient and methodical way. You must have a high degree of personal integrity, and the ability to form effective working relationships with people at all levels of the School. A commitment to producing first class results at all times is a pre-requisite.
The post holder will be ensuring all contact with children promotes happy, safe and well-cared for children, whilst providing high quality administrative support to the Head of Pre-Prep to ensure the smooth running of the department, helping to promote the School and its aims and values to prospective and current parents and guardians in a professional, friendly manner.
Whilst direct experience of a similar role will be helpful, we are equally keen to hear from applicants who have the right skill set and are looking for a new challenge. Trustworthiness and reliability are essential, along with the ability to deal with sensitive and confidential information in a totally discrete manner complying with School policies as set out in the Staff Handbook.
