From time to time we are able to offer volunteer placements to people who would like to develop or refresh their administrative and/or reception skills. These are unpaid opportunities.
The actual tasks you will be asked to do will depend on the school's needs at the time and on the skills areas you wish to develop but, typically, they will include: filing, data inputting, telephone answering/taking and passing on messages, reception work.
If you would like to register your interest, please send a CV and a covering letter explaining your interest and what you feel you would get out of such a placement to:
Viv Oxley, Greig City Academy, High Street, Hornsey, N8 7NU
or by email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Occasionally we have opportunities in other areas of the school such as the one posted here for our Learning Resource Centre/Library. Click on the link to download the details.
If you do take up the offer of a placement, you will have a full induction and ongoing support. The placement will be reviewed termly but we expect, in most cases, that it will last no more than a year. We have to stress that placements are not designed to train people up for a post with the school.
