They are looking for a proactive, confident candidate who will be able to work in close partnership with their new School Business Manager. This role would be suited to someone with wide ranging school office experience who is looking to take the next step in their career and possibly start working towards becoming an Office Manager or Assistant School Business Manager. Experience of working with SIMs, FMS6 and ParentPay will be an asset, as will any prior experience of dealing with school admissions and/or the EYFS census.
