Do you want to join a brand new school looking to appoint an ambitious and inspirational teaching assistant?

Concordia Academy opened as a new free school in 2016. We have just moved into our superb new purpose built site on Union Road in Romford.

We are offering you:

• the opportunity to work in a brand new state-of-the-art building
• fantastic opportunities for career development and progression
• the opportunity to get in on the ground floor of an exciting new project and to help shape the direction of a new school
• extensive professional development to enhance your knowledge and skills

We are looking for:

• someone to provide excellent provision for our children and play an integral role in the development of our newly formed school
• a candidate who is, or wants to become, an outstanding teaching assistant (and is possibly looking to one day become a teacher themselves)
• somebody who is forward thinking and adaptable
• someone who is relentless in securing academic and emotional progress for every child

We will invest in developing you as a member of our staff – this is a unique opportunity to work with senior leaders who have been part of successful school improvement elsewhere in London.

Visits to the school are warmly welcomed so you can have a chance to meet the students, staff and Senior Leadership. Please contact Raheel Akhtar on 01708 932710 to arrange a visit, or for further information.

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children. Successful applicants will be required to undertake a DBS check. We are an equal opportunities employer.
