Part time office administrator
We’re looking for a bright, self-starting individual who likes job variety and has a mixture of strong organisational skills, basic financial experience and is an excellent communicator. If this is you, you could be just the right person to join our team.
We’re a dedicated B2B marketing communications agency. We deliver brilliant PR for clients across a variety of industries and like most employers we are looking for an enthusiastic, confident, organiser whose ambitions match our own. But we want more (we’re demanding, we know) – we want you to be you. Skout prides itself on having an inclusive culture and environment that lets you bring your unique self to work every day. Experience of working in an office environment would be great but don’t let that stop you from applying. If you think you have transferable skills then let us know.
The office administrator at Skout will excel at delivering core admin processes, seeing to all general office requirements and provide operational support for the team as required, all in a timely and effective manner.
Working along side the HR and operations manager you will be involved in all operational aspects of an agency, supporting the wider team in the following areas:-
- Financial – administration of basic financial processes, including:
