St Peter’s is looking for an enthusiastic part-time School Receptionist to join our friendly administration team, working 20 hours per week, Monday to Friday, from 12:30pm to 4.30pm. Term time.

St Peter’s is an extremely successful secondary school and Sixth Form set in attractive grounds on the outskirts of Guildford. Due to an internal career promotion, we currently have a vacancy for a part-time School Receptionist to join our busy support team. Our receptionists are the first point of contact for all visitors to the school and deal with enquiries from students, staff and visitors both on the telephone and face-to-face. First aid around the school site and administration are also a large aspect of this role.

If you enjoy working as part of a team, are friendly, with a good sense of humour and looking for a new challenge, we would be delighted to hear from you.

The ideal candidate will be:

• Experienced as a receptionist (not necessarily in an educational environment).

• A confident, organised, pro-active individual who can prioritise their time and workload, whilst having to deal with unexpected interruptions.

• A good communicator with an excellent telephone manner and experience of working in a customer focused environment.

• Able to remain calm whilst working under pressure in a fast-paced environment.

• IT literate - experience with using school database packages is desirable but not essential.

• First Aid qualified or willing to participate on a one day training course.

St Peter’s can offer you:

• The opportunity to join a friendly, supportive team.

• A varied workload with the necessary training and development to work effectively. Our reception team are trained first aiders. If you do not have a current certificate, you will be required to attend a one day first aid course, ideally prior to joining.

• A Local Government Pension Scheme.

• All staff benefit from free access to Spectrum, Guildford, Sports Centre. Including the gym, group exercise classes, spa and pool.

• An organisation with a unique ethos based on strong relationships, high expectations and emotional and spiritual health.
