About the role
This is a brand new position within the Business Support area that has been created to assist and support the various teams at our Client in meeting their outcomes and objectives.
You will work collaboratively with the teams in order to understand their requirements, provide admin support and where possible ensure value for money.

You will also get involved with arranging meetings and liaising across the different teams to ensure a streamlined communication process using new technology and embracing new ways of working.
Your interpersonal skills will be well developed and you will be adept at engaging with a diverse range of different people. Self-motivated, your organisation skills will underpin your ability to manage multiple deadlines and prioritise your workload.

If you would like to contribute to our Client’s outcomes and develop your admin support skills then they would love to hear from you.
Our Client is a social change organisation with a 100-year history. They are built on trust, show they care, and exist to make a difference.
They work with others to put forward sector-leading research, evidence, solutions and stories to the UK’s influencers and decision-makers.
They believe that a prosperous poverty-free UK is within reach - they just need more people to believe it too.
To make their vision a reality they need talent, ideas, skills and passion, plus they need to change some of what they do and how they do it. So, they’re embarking on a significant period of change - change that will see them become an outcomes-focused organisation that embraces new ways of working and modern practices.
If you share their passion, then they need to hear from you.
