Due to internal promotion, an opportunity has arisen for an enthusiastic, flexible team member to join our Admissions Department in our thriving independent day school. This permanent position is well suited to an individual who is looking to join a hard-working team in a fast-paced, rewarding workplace.

The Admissions Department is responsible for maximising the number of new entrants to the School, whilst ensuring that retention levels remain strong. The successful candidate will possess strong interpersonal skills and work closely with colleagues to ensure that all prospective pupils and their parents experience a warm and responsive introduction into the School throughout the Admissions process.

This is a varied role, which involves data entry, reporting and event preparation. Meticulous attention to detail will be required to ensure accurate capture and entry of data to our Admissions database. Previous experience of customer relationship management databases and working in a customer-facing role would therefore be highly desirable.

In return we offer:
• An opportunity to join our thriving independent day school set in the heart of St Albans, with very good
transport links to central and outer London.
• Professional development opportunities
• An extensive benefits package; use of gym, free lunches, generous pension scheme, free life assurance
• A competitive salary

To apply for this role please complete and return the Job Application form and Equal Opportunities Monitoring form and send this by email to our HR Department @ recruitment@stahs.org.uk. As the school is currently closed to visitors during the COVID-19 pandemic, we therefore ask that if for any reason you are unable to email your application to us and wish to deliver or post a hard copy of your application, please contact our HR team in the first instance to make arrangements to do this in order that we can ensure your application reaches us safely. You may incorporate further details, including your own bespoke CV if you wish, together with any observations on the job description you may have, along with your covering letter.

The High School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. Applicants will be required to undergo child protection screening appropriate to the post, including checks with past employers and the Disclosure and Barring Service.
