Huntingdonshire District Council (HDC) is passionate about providing high quality services to our communities, residents and businesses and this means we need to employ and retain the most talented and dedicated people. Situated within the heart of the Cambridge-Peterborough Growth Area, Huntingdonshire is a beautiful district that boasts thriving market towns and many attractive villages, each with its own identity. We are an innovative and forward-thinking Local Authority whose residents are at the heart of our decision making.
We’re looking for a talented, super-organised and efficient Personal Assistant to join our Executive team, supporting our Corporate Director (People) and Corporate Director (Place), as well as our wider senior leadership team at times.
If you thrive on being busy and challenged and have experience of working at a senior level, we’d love to hear from you. Working closely with the Executive Assistant to the MD, you will be an integral part of the Executive team where your experience and input will be welcomed and valued.
We are looking for someone with exceptional MS Office skills, the ability to prioritise and manage multiple workloads and someone who is calm, efficient and proactive. Experience of managing the diaries of more than one Director and having an understanding of the political landscape would be useful but is not essential.
Above all, we want to employ staff who embody our icare values (Inspiring, Collaborative, Accountable, Respectful, Enterprising) all of which support our ultimate purpose of putting our customers first.
