Adults Administration Assistant

As part of our greener future strategies and our commitment to creating a healthy work-life balance, we welcome a conversation with you regarding our remote working options. Remote working to us is a balance of spending time in our communities, our offices and working from home or wherever works best.

We have one 36-hour position available with the Elmbridge Locality Team, based at Esher Local Office, Elmbridge Civic Centre, High Street, Esher, Surrey, KT10 9SD at £23,243 per annum.

We are looking for candidates who can provide comprehensive administrative support to our Adult Social Care team. You will be undertaking general administrative duties in order to provide support to a dispersed, specialised central operational team within Adult Social Care. Supervision is, at times, off site and you may be required to travel to other sites in Surrey to support operational functions.

You will need to have excellent Excel skills, quick and accurate data entry on mainframe database and Excel spreadsheets. You will need to be able to both interrogate the database and interpret the data recorded which may be complex in nature. At times you will need to produce ad hoc reports from Excel spreadsheets.

You will have good communication skills both written and verbal, as you will be expected to deal with telephone enquiries and a wide range of correspondence, case recording and scanning duties. In addition, you will have the skills to enable you to take notes and minutes of meetings. You will also be required to proofread/edit items for web supported team bulletin.

You will have a flexible, mature approach, as well as being well organised and able to work under pressure and, on occasions, to tight deadlines. You will also have good customer service and excellent IT skills.

Ideally, you will have previous experience of working in a busy office environment and have the ability to work as part of a team within existing working protocols and procedures, whilst being proactive and using your initiative within the scope of the job role.

At Surrey, our values and behaviours are just as important as our skills and abilities. They shape who we are as an organisation. Find out more about the values we follow.
