The school environment is strong and the staff work closely with parents to obtain the best outcomes for their children. 

As our ideal candidate, you must have a passion for the Arts, excellent administration skills and strong connections in the arts community.  You will be a forward thinking, innovative thinker, willing to participate in the development and execution of a vision for the future of the Arts at Scots College.  You will be well used to working in a dynamic environment and enjoy the challenges of event and programme planning and implementation.

Key attributes of the successful candidate include:- 

  • Strong administrative skills especially, planning, time management and organisation skills
  • The ability to engage, enthuse and inspire others
  • Excellent communication and interpersonal skills, and the ability to interact positively with a wide range of people and to build and maintain effective relationships
  • The ability to network effectively
  • Having a strong interest in the students, their families and the community
  • High levels of integrity, practiced judgement and discretion
  • Flexibility and adaptability, able to think on your feet
  • Being a participating and contributing team player

If you are motivated by the prospect of being a part the Scots College Arts programmes, then we would be delighted to hear from you.  The successful candidate will commence in this new role in time for the beginning of Term 1, late January 2021.
