Working Pattern

Grade 7 – £32,234 to £38,890 per annum. Hourly rate of £16.71 to £20.16 (depending on experience) for hours worked on a casual basis. 

The number of hours worked each month will vary, depending on the number of independent admission appeals held, to meet the needs of the group of Academies who subscribe to the service and their stakeholders.   

Required as soon as possible.

A number of Coventry Academy schools are seeking an experienced admission appeals clerk to provide a professional service to independent admission appeals panels.  This will involve clerking admission appeal panel hearings for the schools in accordance with relevant legislation including the School Admission and School Admission Appeals Codes.

You will need excellent communication skills, both verbal and written and the ability to provide clear advice and guidance, calmly and tactfully.  Crucial to this role is the ability to produce accurate records of proceedings and decisions and subsequent decision letters to parents and schools within the required legal timeframes.  You will need to have a full understanding of the confidential and sensitive nature of the appeal admissions process. In return you will have the opportunity to work on your own initiative and gain a great deal of satisfaction from supporting a very broad range of people.   There may also be the opportunity for you to provide training to our independent appeal panel members.

All of the Academies are extremely popular and every year there are far more applications for places than places available. The support and knowledge that an experienced clerk can bring will therefore be very much valued by all the schools.

If you are interested in this opportunity, or would like further information or an application pack, please contact the HR Team on 02476 444822 or by email

Closing date and time 4pm on Monday 6 December 2021
