SGS Berkeley Green UTC is a small, specialist technical school for students aged 14-19.  We are a small, tightly-knit and caring community with a clear sense of purpose.  We are therefore looking for a team player, someone who asks: what can I do to help?  In return you can enjoy a role that really reflects our ethos and helps set the tone for interactions on a daily basis.


You will work very closely with students, staff, parents, visitors and other stakeholders so that their experience of the UTC is positive from the time they walk through the door.  You will take a proactive role in ensuring that the safeguarding needs of the UTC are met, working closely with colleagues to create a safe and healthy environment.  You will therefore be somebody who is able to build positive relationships with young people while maintaining firm boundaries so that alongside their academic development, students are well-prepared for life beyond the UTC.


You will be part of our Administration team and alongside reception duties, you will be expected to complete appropriate tasks as determined by the Senior Administrator.  These are broadly outlined in the job description.  You will need to have excellent administration skills, particularly in the use of Microsoft Office applications.


The role of Receptionist can be challenging so this position will suit somebody with a cheerful outlook, personal resilience and excellent communication skills.


SGS Berkeley Green UTC opened in September 2017 with outstanding facilities, in a state-of-the-art building.  We provide specialist, high quality technical and academic education for students aged 14-19 with a strong interest in Engineering and Digital Technologies including Cyber Security.  Our students wear business attire, call staff by their first names and generally demonstrate excellent professional values.


The UTC is still small but growing, with around 280 students on roll from September 2021.  For the right candidate, this will provide a fantastic opportunity to work at the heart of a school, to get to know every student and every member of staff, and to make a real difference to outcomes for young people.


Join us, and make a real difference.
