Business Support Officer, Open to flexible working

Do you enjoy working in a fast-paced office environment where accuracy and attention to detail are both highly valued and critical to service delivery?

A position has become available for a motivated and highly skilled individual to primarily support the Head of In-House Provider Services, but will also support a wider Executive function including Directors and Chief Officers. You will join a team with a strong commitment to outstanding service delivery, as well as an exemplary ‘can-do’ attitude.

You will also work with Team Managers across a range of provider services including Reablement & Homecare, Day Opportunities and Residential Services.

Key responsibilities:  

  • Manage diary appointments, records and correspondence, schedule and support meetings to facilitate the effective management of their agenda.
  • Manage the flow of information, seek clarification and provide advice and responses; respond to and coordinate urgent requests for information.
  • Draft and prepare correspondence, agendas, minutes, presentations and briefing notes to support the achievement of business requirements.
  • Gather, collate and provide background information for the executive to support informed decision making and planning.
  • Maintain and update administrative practices, systems and procedures to improve efficiency and service delivery.
  • Manage competing priorities and provide consistently high levels of support, given heavy workloads, short deadlines, and the need to maintain confidentiality and act with discretion.
  • Provide a welcoming and hospitable reception to all visitors; respond to requests for information or assistance.

You will be hard-working and committed to delivering a first-class service, with the initiative and skills to work well under pressure. The ability to manage your time and workload effectively are essential.
