Whitgift Foundation

  • South Croydon
Whitgift is a leading independent day and boarding school for nearly 1500 boys, with over 100 boarding pupils. It is set in an attractive parkland estate in South Croydon with excellent links to London, Surrey, and the south coast.

During the summer holidays Whitgift runs its own Summer School for international students, utilising all its fantastic facilities and modern boarding house. The Whitgift Summer School, with its innovative and exciting English language course and activities, both involving native speaking students, is designed to appeal to girls and boys aged 11-17 from all over the world.

We are seeking to appoint a part time administrator who will provide comprehensive administrative assistance across all areas of the Summer School, working closely with the Course Director, Head of Marketing and the year-round Summer School Administrator. General duties involve managing day to day course administration and supporting staff in the delivery of the academic, activity and pastoral programmes. The Administrator will work for 5.5 hours per day on Mondays, Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays throughout the duration of the summer school.

The successful applicant will be highly-motivated, show a significant degree of initiative, and be able to work efficiently and calmly, even at times of particular pressure. Inter-personal skills of an especially high order will be required. The post requires a person of a friendly and co-operative nature, with a flexible approach. First-rate written skills and an excellent command of the English language, with a high level of attention to detail, are essential. Candidates must have strong proficiency in IT, particularly with Microsoft Office.

We welcome applications from all parts of our community as we aspire to attract staff that matches the social and cultural diversity of our student intake.
