School Business Support Officer

36.25 hours per week, 8:00am to 3.45pm, with half an hour for lunch, term time only. 


An exciting opportunity has arisen to work in our busy, well-run school office, providing administrative support.

St Matthew's is a school family, where every member is valued, encouraged and cared for in a supportive environment. Our school family is made up of many different cultures and faiths and we enjoy serving such a rich and diverse community. This diversity helps prepare our children for life in the 21st century within our wonderfully multicultural city of Preston. We work very closely with our families, the St Matthew’s Church congregation and the local community and we encourage families to be fully involved in their child’s education. The successful candidate would be fully supportive of our ethos and approach.

The role involves overseeing and delivering all aspects of school administration and working closely with all members of school staff. The successful candidate will be able to work off their own initiative, work as part of a team, multitask, work effectively under pressure and to tight deadlines in a busy office environment. The successful candidate must be confident, enthusiastic, self-motivated and have the ability to interact effectively with all levels of school staff, parents, children and other stakeholders, dealing with these in a polite, efficient and effective manner. 

Essentially, you will have a wealth of office and administration experience. Having a working knowledge of a school office is desirable, but not essential, as full training will be given. 

This position is 36 hours 15 minutes per week, term time only.

Working hours are 8.00am – 3.45pm, with 30 minutes for lunch.
