A unique opportunity for dedicated and enthusiastic Administration Assistant to join the Attendance team at Castle Mead Academy, as part of The Mead Educational Trust.

In August 2019, Castle Mead Academy, a non-selective secondary school, opened its doors and welcomed our first year 7 cohort. Since then, we have never looked back! We are now fully-grown, with over 1200 scholars as part of our school, going about their learning each and every day. Building on the success of Rushey Mead Academy, Castle Mead is making available in the heart of Leicester a standard of education matching the very best schools in the country so that every scholar leaves us with high value academic qualifications and wider positive dispositions to enable them to lead fulfilling lives.

The opportunity to work in a growing school, is like no other. When you start a school from scratch like we have, it is a golden opportunity to put in place all of the amazing things you have heard and read about from the best schools in the land – but in one place, here in Leicester! As we now cross into our next chapter, having recently just moved into our new state-of-the-art school building, join us and help to build a genuine legacy of your own, alongside colleagues who are aligned in their values.

We are recruiting a team of like-minded experts to help realise our vision and “Grow a Community of Excellence.” This is a rare opportunity, so as we challenge convention, lead without preconception and are unapologetically ambitious on behalf of our scholars.

We are recruiting for an Administration Assistant. This is an opportunity for an experienced Administrator who can:

• support the efficient administration of key service areas

• contribute to the growth of the administrative team and develop administration systems

• work to assist our staff and scholars on a day to day basis

• flourish in our new £37m building, on the picturesque riverside!

The successful candidate will have the opportunity to work with the Attendance Manager to support with all attendance administrative duties and responsibilities and develop year by year as our school grows.

Please submit your application by the Monday 1st July 2024, 9.00am.

For further information, a confidential discussion, to book a visit to Castle Mead Academy or any technical queries please contact Kirsty Gunn, Office Manager by email or telephone (details can be found in the candidate pack).
