Employer & Provider Access

Careers Employers

St George’s Academy is keen to welcome any employer who is keen to share their expertise with our students. This can be either face to face or virtually, doing an in-class talk, an assembly, a workshop or attending a careers event.

Do you need an evening/weekend employee? Let us know! The Futures Office has a jobs board that is updated every week and we will be happy to advertise your jobs for you. The board is regularly looked at, particularly by our Sixth Form students so if you have a vacancy, we can almost certainly fill it for you, and in fact have recruited successfully for several local businesses in recent months!

If you would like to get involved or advertise a part-time position or volunteering opportunity, please contact careersoffice@st georges-academy.org or ring 01529 301177
