Job Vacancies

The Governors at Ocker Hill Academy wish to appoint an enthusiastic and highly motivated Teaching Assistant to work in partnership with staff, community and governors.


We are committed to raising standards in this outstanding academy by providing an exciting curriculum which encourages pupils to be keen and successful learners.


We would like to offer an opportunity for the successful candidate to work alongside a range of pupils in the new Academy Specialist Development Centre – a Focus Provision for pupils with ASD.


The post is fixed term. The contract will be reviewed at the end of the academic year, July 2020. The reason for the fixed term is the uncertainty over the number of children in the Focus Provision in the 2020/21 academic year. Should numbers stay consistent or rise, the post will be extended.


We would love you to join our team if:


  • You have high expectations of yourself and the children in your care.
  • You would like the opportunity to further your own professional development.
  • You are keen to join a highly motivated team who are committed to offering all round care and provision for the pupils at our academy.


Informal visits to the academy for all interested applicants are warmly welcomed and encouraged.  Please contact Mrs Rachel Smith in the academy office to arrange a mutually convenient time on 0121 556 0445.


Interviews are to be held on Wednesday 22nd May 2019.
