We are now recruiting an Administration Assistant to join our team!

You’ll support the Home Manager with a full range of reception, administrative and basic finance activities to ensure the Home runs smoothly. Often the first point of contact for enquiries, you’ll demonstrate a professional and welcoming manner to all those who visit, live and work in our homes. You will be responsible for ensuring that all our visitors follow the infection control rules in force at any given time, also taking the lead on coordinating any testing requirements, organising couriers and associated administrative tasks. Our homes are fun, so you’ll also assist with the planning and management of events that take place in the home, including celebrating residents’ milestone birthdays, fetes, employee presentations or other activities planned by our Activities Coordinator.

In joining us, you’ll also become part of our extended family. You’ll work alongside other team members who are passionate about providing a safe environment, as well as warmth and kindness to all those who live and work in our homes.

Level 2 qualification is desirable in Business Administration and some Finance Experience

You will have previous experience from an administrative or reception job and confident using Microsoft Office. In addition, you’ll have experience of handling cash and keeping reports up to date. Ideally you will have your Maths and English to GCSE level. But most importantly you will be comfortable in an elderly care setting, able to relate to our residents in a caring and sensitive manner. This is a busy and varied role, so you’ll need to be efficient and organised and happy to use your initiative to ensure all tasks are completed in a timely manner. And as the first person who many of our visitors will speak to or see, you will have excellent communication and interpersonal skills.

The Trust is a great place to work; we’ve been providing care for almost 1,000 years and we’re currently the second largest not-for-profit provider in the UK. Not-for-profit means that we reinvest every penny we make into our residents, colleagues and the care homes we live and work in. Therefore, we offer a great range of benefits, including a competitive salary, training and development.

 Here are some of the other benefits you’ll enjoy as a valued member of our team: * Paid breaks
* Paid DBS
* Higher rate of pay at weekends
* Free Uniform
* Free Training
* Development and progression opportunities
* Overtime available
* “My Rewards” offering you discount on shopping, days out, restaurants and much more!
