Are you looking for an exciting change?

Moorditj Noongar Community College (CC) is seeking to appoint a hardworking School Officer to join our friendly and supportive team.

As a School Officer you will be the first point of contact for our school and will need to support co-ordination and delivery of administrative and customer focused support services within our school. The successful applicant will ideally have a friendly, positive and caring attitude; be self- motivated and be organised. They will also ideally model effective and quality customer and administrative support service and have excellent interpersonal and communication skills to work in collaboration with the administration team, school support staff, our school community and teaching staff.

The successful applicant will ideally possess strong attention to detail and work well within a team environment. You will ideally have strong organisational skills and be able to deliver outcomes while working to deadlines in a sometimes challenging and fast paced environment. In addition, you will support student related activities such as assisting with student enrolment procedures, support financial management procedures and operate a range of software packages particularly databases, publisher and word processing. Specific experience with HRMIS, SIS, BMW, OH&S and RM Finance will be highly valued.

The College is a systemic school set in the quiet surrounds of Black Adder Creek. There are 130 students enrolled at Moorditj Noongar CC between 3 year old KindiLink and Year 6. The classes are small compared to other schools and this enables students to receive significantly more teacher-pupil time together. The students live in the Midland area and immediate surrounding suburbs.

Attendance rates are high because the children have access to transportation to and from school. Although there is a significant amount of movement to and from other schools many students return to Moorditj because they miss their friends and extended family members within the Indigenous context. The design of the buildings is symbolic of aspects of Aboriginal culture.

This selection process will initially be used to fill the above vacancy. Applicants assessed as suitable during this selection process may be considered for other similar vacancies that occur throughout our school for up to 12 months following this initial appointment.

  • Good verbal and written communication skills and experience in the application of customer service principles and practices.
  • Good interpersonal skills and ability to work unsupervised and in a team environment.
