More about the role:
In Strategic Commissioning, all vulnerable adults are important to us. We want to ensure they have access to fantastic, customer-focused services that are dedicated to making a difference to their wellbeing. As the Team Administrator, you can find your greatness, helping us to make this happen.
We want to support our customers to live independently at home, participate in the community, be safe and secure and avoid social isolation or loneliness. The services we commission are based on the things our customers have told us are important to them. We work with the provider market to ensure that their service offer delivers what our customers want.
Your role will support the team to undertake commissioning activity through the provision of effective, responsive and timely administrative support. Duties will include producing high quality typed material (e.g. letters, reports, agendas and minutes), arranging meetings and diary management, raising purchase orders through the Council’s SAP/SRM system, maintaining databases (e.g. spreadsheets of financial records, contact details etc.) and dealing with internal and external enquiries.
You will be a key point of contact for the team, and will engage with a range of stakeholders including customers, carers, providers and health and local authority colleagues.
You will have sound literacy, numeracy and IT skills with previous experience in a similar role, ideally in a social care setting. You will have experience of administering financial transactions, with previous experience of The Council’s budget/procurement system (SAP/SRM) desireable (although not essential as training can be provided). You will be a good team player with a ‘can do’ attitude, great communication and interpersonal skills and a professional approach to your work.
You will have an interest in the role that commissioners play in ensuring the needs of vulnerable people are responded to.
If you believe you have the skills and experience to undertake this diverse, challenging and exciting role, we would welcome your application.
Join us, and take advantage of a generous rewards package, flexible/agile working and the chance to learn and progress. You will also have the opportunity to be trained by a leading university and gain a certificate in Commissioning. Above all, you will be working with a team of great people who are dedicated to ensuring that vulnerable adults have access to services that support their wellbeing. Find your greatness at Central Bedfordshire Council, developing your skills to provide great outcomes to vulnerable adults.
