The ideal candidate will be organised, able to use initiative, prioritise incoming work, problem-solve and signpost queries effectively. You will have good listening and communication skills, experience of using common Microsoft Office packages, i.e. Word, Outlook, Excel and SharePoint, an eye for detail and the ability to handle confidential and sometimes distressing information, in line with General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR).

In return, the candidate will be joining an organisation with excellent employee terms and conditions, e.g. Flexitime, opportunities for career development and the opportunity to make a difference to the local people of Nottinghamshire.

Disabled applicants who meet the essential shortlisting requirements will be guaranteed an interview.
