We are seeking to recruit a School Admissions Officer to work within the busy School Admissions Team.

The successful candidate’s role will be to support the team in providing an effective and friendly service when parents/carers, schools and colleagues are looking for school places and when advice is sought on school admissions issues.

The School Admissions Team is responsible for allocating school places for pupils who are either starting school in Northamptonshire or moving into or around the county, thereby ensuring that all pupils of statutory school age have access to education. Main duties include ensuring that the database is maintained accurately and that school places are allocated within given and agreed timescales.

A School Admissions Officer will need to have good administrative and clerical skills as well as the ability to use the computer-based systems which we use to co-ordinate the admission and transfer of pupils into schools in Northamptonshire. With the support of senior members of the team, it is expected that the successful candidate will gain knowledge about both School Admissions legislation and Council processes to enable them to process applications and answer queries. The role requires a person who will be confident in dealing with parents, carers, schools and colleagues within this and other LAs and having an approachable, clear and calm manner would be advantageous. We are looking for a candidate who can work with care and attention to detail and who has the ability to work accurately under pressure to tight timescales.
