We’re looking for a results-driven individual with office administration experience gained in a customer-facing environment, to join us as an Administrator and play a vital support role as part of an exciting new initiative.
Due to a growing need, Shelter Merseyside have established an integrated service to support ex-service men and women aged 65+ who are experiencing housing related issues and social isolation across Merseyside. The Aged Veterans team will provide advice and offer low-level support in community venues and veterans’ homes to enable them to access, keep and improve their accommodation. A partnership project, it will use income from the Aged Veterans Fund, funded by the Chancellor using LIBOR funding as part of The Royal British Legion’s Healthy Living Portfolio. This is your chance to be involved right from the start.
Benefits include 30 days annual leave (pro rata), the possibility of flexible working and significant opportunities for learning and development.
Your key responsibilities:
- Providing a range of day-to-day office administration support such as file maintenance, photocopying, typing and scanning, providing front of house cover, answering the telephone, dealing with queries and handling the mail
- Designing and developing office systems and processes
- Ordering office supplies and coordinating the maintenance of office equipment
- Supporting front line staff with case administration and helping the Service Manager with ad-hoc projects.
And what you’ll need:
- Experience of office administration in a customer facing environment
- Proficiency using Microsoft Office applications such as Word, Excel, email and the internet and a minimum typing speed of 50wpm
- A proactive and collaborative approach and the ability to apply creative thinking and introduce new ideas, methods and processes
- An ability to work both as part of a team and on your own initiative to ensure smooth running of the service and that deadlines are met
- Great communication and relationship building skills, a flair for understanding the needs of internal and external customers and a commitment to achieving results.
