The Development Office (a small team consisting of the Bursar, the Development Officer and Development Assistant) has been focused, for the last two years, on its ‘Making £nds Meet Appeal’ in response to the massive cuts in education funding, from which many schools in the state sector are now suffering. Alongside this, the school has been successful at gaining a grant to build a new £3M Sixth Form and Library Block, which requires further funds to furnish the new development. Pate’s Grammar School is now looking to recruit a second part-time Development Assistant to join the team and help take this work to the next level. The role also sits within the wider support team of the school and there are many chances to be involved in other aspects of the busy life of the school.
This exciting new role offers an exceptional opportunity to really help make a difference in the education of children. It is ideal for someone who has strong interpersonal skills, a warm and engaging personality, a keen attention to detail and thrives in a busy environment.
