Working in our custom-built central offices and based at Halterworth Primary School (Romsey) you will be part of an expanding team supporting our schools in an environment which offers further career opportunities and great professional development for all.

Application Procedure
To enable you to fully understand what we have to offer you, I would encourage you to contact us for an initial conversation or better still come and meet us and we will be happy to answer any questions you may have. We are open to flexible working and part-time hours but please note that this is an all-year-round contract.
Completed application forms should be returned to Jill McCall, CFO via email at
