About Unity Academy Trust

Unity is a small and relatively new multi-academy trust, currently consisting of Gravel Hill and Upland Primary schools in Bexleyheath.  Both schools share similar visions and values, and are immensely proud of their children’s achievements.  At Unity we believe that our staff are our greatest asset, so we work hard to ensure our whole team benefits from excellent support and ongoing quality CPD. We are going through a period of exciting change over the next year, and as part of this reorganisation we are looking to develop our central team.

Your Opportunity

We are looking to appoint an extremely capable and hardworking part-time Trust Administrator who can also take on the role of Data Protection Officer for our Trust (after training).  Initially this will be a role offering just 7.5 hours a week, although this is very likely to double in the next year, and may increase further in the future, in line with trust growth.  This position carries considerable responsibility for ensuring that we maintain high standards of data protection across our schools, manage all of our policies effectively, and provide a good level of admin support for our governors, trustees and members.

The successful candidate will:

  • have considerable administrative experience at a senior level
  • demonstrate excellent communication skills, both written and verbal
  • be extremely well organised and self-motivated, able to prioritise and multi-task effectively
  • have strong IT skills and a commitment to CPD

A job description and person specification for this role are attached.  If you wish to discuss the post further or would like to visit one of our schools, please contact Jenny Grant, Trust Business Manager, by email jennygrant@unityacademytrust.co.uk
