About the role
Children, Families and Learning provides a range of highly specialist services to vulnerable children and young people.

You will make sure that everything is in place to guarantee that all runs smoothly for the processes and teams you support and, as a Senior Administrator, will ensure daily workflow is completed to timescales.
