An exciting opportunity has arisen to join our expanding Business Support Team, as a full time, permanent Business Support Assistant. We are in the process of enhancing the existing Business Support service that we offer to colleagues, so this is a fantastic time to join the team and make a real difference. 

As an organisation, we have clear values that unite our Group; we put our customers first and always strive for ways to develop our vision of ‘improving lives’, while providing a ‘heartfelt service’. We are looking for a passionate individual to join the Business Support team, who will embrace our values and help to develop a culture that goes hand in hand with our Group ‘One Team, One Vision’ ethos.  

The main focus of this role is to provide comprehensive administrative support to colleagues across the Group, ensuring a first class administration service is offered at all times. Tasks will include minute taking, administration of the organisation’s online My Account portal and data analysis, in addition to general administration tasks. 

Strong ICT skills are essential; with proven experience using Microsoft Office packages, including word processing, formatting, inputting, editing, retrieving, copying and data analysis. Knowledge of Survey Monkey and other software packages would be desirable. Embracing new technology and pro-actively using ICT to seek new ways of working is essential to ensure the team can meet business needs now, and in the future.

As a successful candidate, you will have a friendly, professional and approachable manner that enables you to work as part of a wider team. You will be positive, enthusiastic and self-motivated in your approach to service delivery, with excellent organisational and administrative skills. You must have the ability to manage and prioritise your individual workload in order to meet deadlines, while responding flexibly to requests and providing a high quality service at all times.
