Good job!

Customer and Operations Administrator – Wokingham, full time

 

Are you super-organised with a fastidious attention to detail but also happy to chat with our clients on the phone or on email without making typos and using text-speak? The sort of person who digs that little bit deeper to get the job done when needed?

If you can back this up with a minimum of two years’ successful administration/PA experience, then we’d love to hear from you. Oh, and if you have worked in a business providing B2B consultancy services in the health and safety, education, youth work, legal or insurance sectors then you’re bound to bowl us over!

We’re a small team making a big impact on a rapidly increasing number of clients, helping our clients to prevent, prepare for and respond to major incidents and crises in the UK and overseas. Our clients include the government’s National Citizen Service (NCS), leading independent schools, Multi Academy Trusts and well known brands across the youth, adventure, travel and charity challenge sectors.

Our small but lovely office in central Wokingham is home for our full-time staff but we also work closely with a wide range of pretty amazing people with specialist experience and who are based regionally.

We’re looking for a new team member to help keep us organised and our clients happy by being their first port of call for any day-to-day enquiries. You don’t need to be an expert but using the standard range of business IT systems including a CRM database, Microsoft Office and Google applications will be natural to you.

Remuneration and arrangements
£22,000 – £25,000pa depending on experience plus pension.

Due to the nature of our clients’ work with children and the access to confidential personal data, the successful candidate will need to maintain professional confidentiality and will be required to conduct a Disclosure and Barring Service (police screening) check.
