Job Description

I am looking to appoint an Admin Assistant into a very busy development department within a local authority.

My client is looking for somebody to start on the 17th June and the contract runs until the end of March 2021.

For the first few weeks, the successful candidate will be working from home. All the correct equipment to do so will be provided by my client. Given the working conditions, the first few weeks will be on a part time basis of 3 days a week to allow the existing team to train the new starter effectively and manage their own work. Shifts will be 7.5 hours Wednesday and Thursday and 7 hours Friday. This will be a full week of 37 hours Monday - Friday once all training is complete.

They are looking for a hard working, driven individual with an abundance of experience working in a similar sector. They are looking for somebody to come in and help with the movement from paper working to digital working within their teams to reduce the need for contact.

Specifically, the post holder will be looking after the following departments and reporting directly to Heads of Service in each department:

  • Building and FM Services
  • Clean and Green
  • Neighbourhood Protection
  • Refuse and Recycling
  • Fleet
  • Waste Management
  • Highways

Candidates must be confident to work in a customer facing role and have a wealth of knowledge using in house systems.

Please apply within or call 07711556949 to express your interest. If nobody answers please leave a message and somebody will get back to you. Please be prepared to send over your CV, three names, numbers and email addresses for references, any relevant qualifications, NI and right to work documents.
