Experience working in an administration role, preferably within an arts organisation or school context, would be a plus.

This position is full-time, term-time only plus 2 weeks (37 weeks per year).  Hours of work are Monday to Friday, from 8.30am to 5.00pm (although some evening work will be required on occasions to cover school performances for which time off in lieu will be given).  Staff benefits include fee remission (pro-rated); opportunities for professional development; contributory pension scheme; free on-site parking; staff gym; free school lunches; cycle to work scheme; free ‘travel to work loan scheme’.
