Is this one of the nicest places to work in the area? 
As the business continues to grow, a permanent vacancy has arisen with perhaps one of the nicest places to work in Tewkesbury, to support a Senior Administrator with her increasing workload.

Feedback from four people who have already joined the business this year as the company grows, confirms that they have been made to feel very welcome indeed and they were made to feel part of the small team quickly. They explain that their new colleagues have been very friendly and welcoming. The training has been great and they feel that they have been supported very well as they settle in.

The job
Joining a small very small group of friendly people in smart, modern offices, your role as Office Administrator will see you carrying out a broad variety of administrative tasks to support the smooth running of the office. A normal day might include answering phone calls from business customers and suppliers, photocopying, scanning, filing, updating basic spreadsheets and offering general support to the department.
Working in a small team supporting key business functions, this is not a call centre type job handling never ending enquiries from members of the public. This is very much a varied role offering internal administrative support whilst also answering some external enquiries over the phone and by email.

With business customers in a range of industries, and a high value/high quality product range, this position offers long term job security and long term career prospects with a company which has exciting plans for growth in the coming years so if this appeals to you, then this might be just the job for you.

Role and Responsibilities for Office Administrator
  • Scanning, photocopying, filing, and retrieving files
  • Typing up documents
  • Handling business customer and supplier enquiries by telephone and e-mail
  • Inputting data into basic spreadsheets
  • Communicating with internal departments
  • Being generally flexible to support the business in an administrative capacity
Skills & Experience for Office Administrator
You'll be joining a very small team so your friendly nature, your willingness to be flexible in terms of the tasks you can take on and your conscientious attitude to do a great job will see you becoming very successful in this position.

  • to be accurate, with great attention to detail
  • the ability to manage your own workload
  • the ability to show patience and understanding, maintaining customer focus
  • sound computer skills using Microsoft Word, Excel and Outlook
  • if you have used accounting software in the past, this would be ideal but this isn't essential as training will be provided
