Blatchington Mill School needs a Receptionist to join the Administration Team at this successful and popular large secondary school.

This role is very important, being the first point of contact with our school for students, families and visitors. We seek candidates who understand the essential balance to be welcoming and friendly alongside the need to be professional and highly efficient.

We take Safeguarding and Child Protection seriously at Blatchington Mill School and the diligence of our Receptionists is key to these procedures.

Whilst managing the reception desk you would also be required to operate the school’s switchboard and electronic gates, there are a range of administrative tasks that are associated with this role. It is desirable for staff to be qualified in first aid although training in this area is offered.

This is an exciting time to join our school as our intake is increasing and we continue to be oversubscribed. We welcome applications from candidates with experience of similar roles either in an educational setting or elsewhere.

If you are interested in applying for this role please complete and return an application form to Amanda Brasington at

Closing date: Monday 25th November 2019 at noon.

Interview date: Wednesday 4th December 2019

Blatchington Mill School is committed to safeguarding our students; we expect all staff and volunteers to support this commitment. Criminal record checks will be carried out and a full, enhanced DBS clearance is required for all positions.

Applications are encouraged from black and ethnic minority candidates, as these groups are under-represented on the school's staff.

(Race Relations Act sections 35-38 apply).
