I've been invited to apply for this position - it's a private school from reception to sixth form.

Does anyone work in this role and could share experience?

Thanks in advance.

The tile is misleading. Is it a deputy head post or pa/bursar type role?

Hi - I'm a Finance Manager in an independent school.

The role your describe is like the right hand woman to the Head Teacher: diary management; assisting with prize giving; dealing with parents; liaising with new incoming parents etc.

You may have some office management duties for other admin staff.

The main issue with a job like this is that you will be working very closely with the HT and if there are any personality clashes they'll be hard to get over.

Thanks moany. That was my first thought too. Guess it will come down to personalities if I get an interview.
