Business Administration/Receptionist Apprentice (Level 2 or 3)

We currently have an exciting opportunity for a Business Admin / Receptionist Apprentice at St Michael's Church School. Please note that the initial recruitment stage will be carried out by City College Peterborough.

At St Michael’s we believe we are a church school family – actually living each day, all the values that a family might uphold and instill. We want the very best for everyone in our school regardless of whether they are a child or an adult; we nurture gifts and talents and closely support those areas of living and learning together that might be that bit harder to achieve.

We do this by recognising and celebrating difference and treating everyone equally with the same respect and care. We listen, aim to know everyone as well as we can and we look after each other. As expectation is high, we also deliver tough messages that are not always easy to hear or to accept but a very necessary part of growing and developing into being the very best we can be. We extend this way of being to our parents and our local community, believing that there is strength in working in partnership and a comfort in knowing that St Michael’s Church School is at the hub of the local community.

The successful applicant will play a key role within a busy and friendly team.
Duties will include (but not be limited) to:

*Supporting the day to day administration requirements of the team using a range of Microsoft Office systems - to include spreadsheets, databases and monitoring stationery
*Providing excellent customer service support for parents, students and teaching staff
*Reception duties and supporting the curriculum teams
