Appointment: Permanent 
Place of work: St Benedict’s Catholic School

Required as soon as possible

Due to the internal redeployment of the current post-holder, we are seeking to appoint an organised, compassionate and positive individual to the key role of attendance officer. The successful applicant will have responsibility for the accurate recording and monitoring of student absence and will liaise with key staff as well as parents and agencies regarding school attendance. Whilst experience of working in schools is helpful, this is not essential and full training will be given. The post is advertised as full-time, however colleagues offering part-time would also be considered as long as the start of each school day was covered. Our school is committed to our mission as a Catholic community and seeks to help all our young people achieve their potential both academically and personally. We can offer you a positive environment where you will be encouraged to progress further in your career should you wish, supported by a team of staff who are hardworking and dedicated to the school. If you have any questions about the vacancy, the school or your potential application you are warmly invited to contact the school. Applications will be reviewed as received and strong applicants invited to interview before the closing date so an early application is advised.

Closing date: 09.00 Friday 3 February 2023
Interviews: by Friday 10 February 2023
