Our culture and values

We like our staff to be proactive and innovative. Being customer focused and willing to maximise your potential at work are expected. We all work together to achieve the very best for our residents which sometimes means getting involved in projects and trying new tasks outside of your day to day job role. We love our staff to suggest new ideas and to have enthusiasm to try out new experiences.

The job role

We are seeking a motivated candidate to work closely within the Asset Team on day to day administrative tasks while supporting planned works and projects.

Routinely we are required to prepare reports for council meetings and along with more strategic report writing. The role will be supporting the Facilities Management and Estate Management aspects of the council owned property portfolio which in itself is relatively small yet varied and interesting. No two days are ever the same.

Excellent organisational skill, good I.T. skills, and good verbal and written communication skills are essential requirements for this role.

The post holder will be responsible for a number of administrative duties including assisting with Estate Management database, Utility billing recharges, monitoring Energy use, Contract and Tender documents, arranging meetings, checking attendee’s availability, booking venues, circulating agendas and relevant paperwork, and where necessary taking minutes. The post holder must also be committed to completing an NVQ Level 3 in Business Administration.
