Job Details:

Because of National Star’s reputation for being one of the best specialist colleges for young adults with disabilities, our student recruitment team is flat out dealing with enquiries from parents and prospective parents.


Join us as the team’s part-time administrator (maternity cover) and help us to keep abreast of the paperwork, telephone calls and emails surrounding our student admissions.


This is a highly desirable term-time only job because, not only will you be supporting one of the friendliest teams at National Star, Ullenwood, but the hours are 9am – 3pm, making it suitable for working parents or someone looking to maintain their work life balance.


The post is a maternity cover role, for up to 12 months. The job would suit a sociable, multi-tasker. Someone who is good at prioritising tasks, can maintain confidentiality and build a rapport with parents. It goes without saying that you will need to be IT literate with a high level of attention to detail. Being able to work as part of a team and use your initiative when working independently would be highly desirable too.


About us 

National Star is a growing charity with more than 1,200 staff based in England and Wales. Established more than 50 years ago, we’ve supported hundreds of young people with disabilities to achieve their potential.

This includes those with disabilities, and we are a proud Disability Confident employer and are committed to providing equal opportunities.

Please note that all applicants will be expected to undertake a DBS Disclosure, and undergo the necessary employer checks. The level of disclosure to be applied for will be dependent on your job role and will be discussed with you during the recruitment process but is usually an enhanced level. Where appropriate, the adult and child barred lists will be checked and we will not employ anyone who appears on either of those registers.


We prefer people to submit an online application as this helps support the charity in saving money.  Alternatively please send your cv to  or call our recruitment department 01242 527631 for further information or an application form. If you have a disability and need to apply using an alternative format, or if you have any technical problems with our recruitment system please let us know.
