We are seeking a highly motivated individual with outstanding ICT skills to fulfil the role of Exams & Assessment Assistant to commence from September 2020. The person appointed will report directly to the Exams and Assessment Officer and will be required to work some days in August when examination results are published.

The successful candidate will have excellent communication skills, good time management, the ability to multitask and be able to work to tight deadlines. This role will necessitate accuracy, attention to detail and excellent organisational skills. Experience of working within a school environment and the use of SIMS is desirable but not essential as training will be given. More importantly candidates should be proficient in the use of excel spreadsheets.

The successful candidates need to be extremely well organised, literate, numerate, IT literate and have excellent communication skills both written and verbal.

The academy is ranked well within the top 10% of schools nationally for student progress and in 2019 83% of our students achieved Grade 4 or above in English and Maths. But that’s just the beginning. Today we’re Outstanding; tomorrow, with your talents, we’ll be even more exceptional.

As one of the highest performing Family of Schools in the North of England, Outwood Grange Academies Trust is transforming the futures of countless young people. You can be part of this unique place, in the historic town of Worksop, with easy access to Nottingham, Lincoln and Sheffield.

In line with the Government’s announcement, our academy is closed until further notice. However, we are still busily planning ahead for the forthcoming academic year and are excited about welcoming new recruits to come and join us. In place of academy-based interviews, we have set up systems to ensure that alternative options are still available via skype/video conferencing wherever possible. Every effort will be made to try to accommodate any specific requirements so that no-one is at a disadvantage.

Understandably, visits to the school are not possible at present, however we are really keen to ensure that you have as much information to proceed with your application as possible, so if you would like a conversation about either the academy or the position please contact Stephen Lambert, Business Manager on 07593 138296 or via email at hr@portland.outwood.com and we will be happy to assist.
