Reception Office Manager
PA to Senior Management Team
Assistant School Secretary
Hi my name is Joanne Quinn, I am one of the lucky ones. I live in Rotherhithe, so I donít have to travel far to work.
I joined Cavendish School on a voluntary basis, working in the schools catering department. In January 2005 I was given the opportunity of employment within the admin department as receptionist assistant. I have been promoted a couple of times since, my current position being office manager.
My role is to support the head teacher and teaching staff with the administration of the day-to-day activities with the school. This ranges from keeping track with students who are going in and out the building throughout the day., booking studentsí transport to arranging studentsí annual reviews, writing to parents/carers and keeping accurate records of student data.
I am the main contact for our visitorís, whether this is on the phone or face to face.
I enjoy working at Cavendish, it is a great achievement to see students doing well and although I am not classroom based, I believe that the support I give to staff assists with this.
My aim is to develop my admin skills even further. This will aid the schoolís progress and give staff access to studentsí records at a click of a button.
