Personal Assistant

About the role

Are you a dynamic, organised PA/Administrator who enjoys working as part of a team but with their own workload in a fast-paced environment.

We are looking for an enthusiastic and dedicated individual to join our team of Personal Assistants who between them support 3 Directors and 4 Assistant Directors (soon to be 5).  You will be supporting 2 Assistant Directors by effectively managing their busy diaries and inboxes along with preparing, attending and minuting meetings.  You will work as part of a team who work closely together along with their line manager to ensure all the requirements of the Senior Leadership Team and the Board of Directors are met, those that have been thought of and at times the ones that haven’t, requiring the ability to think on your feet and be pro-active.

What will you be doing?

You may already be a Personal Assistant, or you may be an accomplished administrator looking to make a move into this type of role.  Either way you will need to be very organised, show attention to detail, be able to multi-task and react to changing priorities while staying cool under pressure. 

If you are able to demonstrate these qualities and understand the need for confidentiality then you could be just who we are looking for.

About you

You should have a good working knowledge of Outlook, Word, Excel and Powerpoint.  We also use Microsoft Teams and Sharepoint for our virtual meetings, collaborative working and document storage so a basic knowledge of these would also be beneficial although training will be given.

We are based at One Angel Square in the centre of Northampton.  We work flexibly splitting our working week between office and home in line with the team and Director’s requirements and on the odd occasion travel may be required.

For an informal discussion about the role please contact Tracy Bottomley, Business Manager to the Leadership Team on 07967 229010.

About us

Northamptonshire Children’s Trust was established in November 2020 to deliver Children’s Services to the newly established North and West Northants County Councils. The Trust is wholly owned and funded but operationally independent from the Councils; this provides the organisation with unique opportunities to explore new ways of working and to be more agile and adaptable in its approach to service delivery. We are developing a culture that allows the very highest quality of professional practice to flourish and evolve, delivering at the cutting edge of new innovation.
