About the job

Do you have a RSA III Word Processing or equivalent qualification and experience of administrative practices and procedures? If yes, we want to hear from you.

We have a vital yet rewarding opportunity where you’ll provide administrative support to the Special Educational Needs Assessment Team, by organising the agenda for the Moderation Panel, taking minutes and communicating decisions to parents and Headteachers, while maintaining an accurate database in respect of requests for statutory assessments.

This is a public facing role so you’ll need to show off your fluency in speaking and writing English.
