  • Administrative tasks including photocopying, filing and maintaining records
  • Ensure office facilities consumables maintained.

As part of the role, you’ll also be asked to support the facilities management and events teams, with tasks like emergency light testing, gritting the car park in bad weather and setting up rooms for meetings and events.

  • Commitment to delivering excellent ‘customer’ service.
  • Good interpersonal skills, able to effectively communicate with customers and colleagues.
  • IT literate (able to use Microsoft Office and the Internet).
  • Effective written communication skills.
  • Able to work efficiently under pressure, without compromising on accuracy and attention to detail.
  • A team player, who’s equally happy to proactively work on their own for periods of time.
  • Flexible approach to work (both in terms of working hours and ability to adapt to varying demands).
  • Full UK driving licence, comfortable to drive a small van.

Whilst not essential, basic maintenance skills would be desirable.
