Job Title:                                     Business Support Officer

Grade and Salary:                    5 / £6,850 – £7,061

Hours and Working Weeks:    16 hours per week (in term time plus 5 days)

In September 2018 Ethos Academy Trust brought together three exceptional alternative provisions in Kirklees into one new organisation.  An exciting opportunity has arisen for an enthusiastic, hardworking Business Support Officer to join the Business Support team.  You will be joining a dedicated team of staff who all make a contribution to improving outcomes for young people.

We are seeking to appoint an enthusiastic, flexible individual to:

  • Provide a wide range of administrative support for young people and their families;
  • Work collaboratively with colleagues to ensure the effective delivery of the service;
  • Work closely with the Office Manager and undertake other key areas of responsibility in line with the grade of this post;
  • Ensure inventories of equipment and stock are maintained and supplies replenished;
  • Maintain accurate records and filing systems;
  • Provide a warm and friendly reception to visitors, young people and colleagues.

Essential qualities for the position include:

  • The ability to be understanding, responsive, calm and supportive;
  • A positive attitude towards working with vulnerable young people;
  • An ability to work effectively as part of a team;
  • A flexible approach in order to meet the needs of the Trust;
  • Act with integrity, honesty and professional competence;
  • Understand the importance of confidentiality.

Aspects of this role involve extremely busy periods and you will therefore need to have a flexible and adaptable approach to your work.  You will work as part of a small team providing a ‘front of house’ service, offering a wide range of high quality business and administrative support to the school.  You will receive support and line management from senior staff within the Trust alongside comprehensive continuous professional development.

We are committed to safeguarding and  promoting the welfare of children and young people and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. All staff are subject to an enhanced DBS check.  A conviction may not exclude candidates from appointment but will be considered as part of the recruitment process.

If you require further information about the role or an informal chat, please contact Hava Farooq, Office Manager on telephone: 01924 478482 or you can visit the Trust website at
