The starting salary for this role is £12,390 per annum and is based on an 18 working hour week.
This role is open to remote working meaning you aren't required in the office 5 days a week. We're less about you driving to work and more about us collectively driving down our carbon footprint. We care about how you work rather than where you work; the people rather than the postcode. In support of our people and our greener futures strategies, we'd welcome a conversation with the successful candidate on what remote working may look like for you.

You will organise meetings, keep track of information, update and maintain spreadsheets and databases, and take meeting minutes, subsequently distributing these to involved parties.
You will be highly organised and willing to take responsibility and use initiative as well as comfortable in setting your own priorities and meeting deadlines. You will make sure that everything is in place to guarantee that all runs smoothly for the processes and manager you support. Excellent interpersonal skills are essential along with a high level of written and verbal communication skills. You will have experience of working with highly confidential information in a customer focused environment, and have the ability to work under pressure and to tight deadlines.
