Office Manager

Salary: £25,250 per annum pro rata

Hours: 30.0 hours (to be worked across 4 or 5 days)

Contract: Permanent

Closing date: 3rd July 2018

The Office Manager oversees our office functions including IT user support; management of our IT and telephone systems, and premises; management of the Local Assistance Scheme (which provides emergency financial assistance to clients); procurement of office supplies; acting as our Health & Safety Officer; and assisting with the desktop publishing of our promotional literature and communications with supporters.  We therefore need a good mix of interpersonal skills and technical skills.

The post is part of the management team and will interact with all areas of the organisation.  It is key that the Office Manager makes decisions based on their implications for the advice service.

The Office Manager’s duties include responding to issues without notice (examples of this include IT issues and the Local Assistance Scheme).  It is therefore necessary that the 30 hours are spread over at least 4 days.
