The starting salary for this role is £26,080 per annum for a 36 hour working week. 

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.

Would you like to be part of a committed workforce and business support team? Are you passionate about helping others? Are you a highly organised individual who wants to make a difference? Then the role of Senior Business Support Assistant could be the one for you! 

This position offers a great exposure to various business, staffing and recruitment activities across the Adult Social Care Directorate which our team manage for and on behalf of our frontline managers.

As a result of the increased activity, we are recruiting to meet the demands of the service. With this in mind, we have the opportunity for enthusiastic and motivated people to join us.

We currently have two positions available: 

  • 2 x full-time, fixed-term contracts or secondment opportunities until 31st October 2023

Our job profiles will tell you what you’ll be doing, but more important to us is how you’ll do it. We want people who are self-motivated and committed to working in partnership with others, from junior colleagues and peers to the most senior leaders in the council. Service users are at the heart of what we do and we expect you to have the same values. You’ll have exceptionally high standards, which goes without saying, but more than that, you’ll be someone who wants to find more efficient ways of working.

You’ll be working in a team that will provide you with support and guidance, and we’ll also give you the freedom to be creative and use your own initiative. Our team has a proven track record of career success, and we’ll work with you to progress; challenging you on a day to day basis and offering you opportunities to work on new and varied work.

In this role, you will be leading on various processes such as recruitment, OM and business support. The role is fast-paced, but we offer a thorough induction and support program to help you learn new processes. Once you are up and running, we are always looking to support development by offering bespoke project work so you can get involved in a variety of tasks.

We are looking for someone who is committed and holds the value of being the best you can be on a day to day basis. You will need to be a strong administrator with an eye for detail and able to manage several processes at once. You will need to have excellent IT skills and be a real team player who is willing to help and support colleagues as required.

Excellent customer service is key to this role as you will be working with frontline social care managers on a day to day basis and you will often be the first point of contact for candidates, and in recruitment first impressions are so important.
