The starting salary for this role is £24,780 per annum for a 36 hour working week. 

This role is based at Guildford Borough Council offices. However, due to the Covid-19 situation we are currently working from home and while there will be an expectation to attend the office in Guildford moving forwards, remote working is encouraged. 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? This role offers a great step up on the business support / administration ladder as it offers a wide exposure to the service.

Our team manage a range of business, staffing and recruitment activities across the Adult Social Care Directorate, for and on behalf of our frontline managers. This means they can focus on making a difference to the residents of Surrey. As a result of the increased activity in this area, we are recruiting to meet the demands of the service. With this in mind, we have an opportunity for an enthusiastic and motivated person to join us.

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 some 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 one time. 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.

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.
