We’re looking for someone who has a can-do attitude and can think on their feet, prioritise tasks efficiently and turn up to work with a smile. Punctuality is key, and a friendly and approachable manner when speaking to other employees or clients whether face to face, over the phone or by email.

Tasks will include preparing quotations on Quickbooks, answering the phone and important emails, supporting and liaising with our loyal clients, creating health and safety documents, booking in events and equipment and other administrative duties.

  • To provide general administrative support to the Office Manager in all aspects of operations.
  • Manage and organise diaries where appropriate.
  • Covering reception and purchasing office supplies and other materials.

 

What we’re looking for:

  • Excellent organisational skills and an ability to manage several tasks simultaneously.
  • Must have a positive attitude and maintain a good working relationship with internal and external contacts.
  • Good working knowledge of Microsoft Word, Excel and computers in general
