About the role

With our redesigned HR & OD function going from strength to strength in support of the council's ambition to be recognised as, quite simply, the best, this is an exciting time to join us.

You'll be the Go To person within and outside of the HR & OD team and will work with other PAs across the organisation to make sure everything's joined up and on track. 

You don't necessarily need previous PA experience but you do need to able to work super effectively in a fast based environment, great diary management and IT skills and a positive, can do attitude. Because this is HR & OD, you also need to know when to keep things confidential.
