A temporary exciting opportunity has arisen to join the Business Support Service in Barnsley Council as a Business Support Officer, providing a comprehensive and efficient Business Support service predominantly to Fostering/Placement Services.
Services for children in Barnsley have been assessed as good by OFSTED and by working together as part of a committed and dedicated team, you will play a key role in continuing to make the service shine and progress.
As a Business Support Officer to Fostering/Placement Services you will support the service to enable the successful placement of looked after children in the context of a highly-pressurised working environment, and take ownership of specific issues within the service, co-ordinating and monitoring milestones through to their conclusion. You will be involved in the minuting of meetings including the tracking of outcomes and financial information, placing purchase orders/invoices and the reconciliation thereof, as well as recruitment and marketing.
You will hold a NVQ level 3 or equivalent level qualification in a business related subject.
The service processes a high volume of confidential information that is emotive in content for which a level of personal resilience is required
You will be flexible in your approach in order to ensure the overall service objectives are achieved, be an excellent team player and willing to make a solid contribution to the smooth running of the service.
