Governors of this popular, successful and highly over–subscribed 11-16 High School are seeking to appoint a
committed, personable and motivated Temporary Receptionist/General Administrative Assistant to cover the
maternity absence of the current postholder and to contribute towards the efficient administration in the busy
main school office.
The Elton High School has recently moved into the first new secondary building to be built in Bury for many
decades. It offers fantastic facilities which offer the best learning experience for every child. However, the
heartbeat of the school is not the bricks and mortar of the building but the community of staff, students, parents
and governors.
Our Receptionist is a vital role within the school and first point of contact. The role will involve welcoming visitors
to the school, signing them into the building and issuing visitor passes. In addition to this you will answer phone
calls and queries, carry out basic administration tasks, organise post and support other colleagues as required.
You will be fully supported in your role and work jointly with our Pupil Receptionist.
We are specifically looking for someone who: –

  • Has the ability to communicate clearly and effectively, in a confident and positive manner.
  • Has excellent interpersonal skills with a friendly, polite, and approachable outlook.
  • Demonstrates a flexible approach, according to the needs of the school.
  • Has good computer skills in Microsoft Office applications.
  • Possesses strong organisation skills and has the ability to multitask.
  • Is eager to learn new skills and knowledge.
    Employees of Bury Council have a responsibility for, and must be committed to, safeguarding and promoting the
    welfare of children and young people and for ensuring that they are protected from harm. Appointment is subject
    to a satisfactory enhanced disclosure from the Disclosure and Barring Service.
