We are known for our supportive culture and are a place where those with ambition will achieve great things.

The Role:

This is an administrative role to support our HR Department and Office Manager. You will provide administrative support for the business with a particular focus on recruitment as well as support with general office management. This role has the potential for the right candidate to move longer term to other areas of the business including Sales or Sales Administration.

There are incredible career growth prospects with realistic opportunity to increase your long-term earning potential. A previous apprentice that started in a similar role is now earning >£70k in less than 5 years - which is unusual but shows what hard work, focus and commitment can bring you.

About You:

You don’t need any previous experience, just ambition and the appetite to learn new skills. Crucially you must be confident speaking to people outside the business, so the right candidate will need to enjoy the people facing aspects of the role.

You will be a highly organised forward planner with great attention to detail. You will need to be resourceful and have the ability to be focused to see every task through to completion in a timely manner.

Our ideal candidate will be one that follows instructions well but can also work well under own initiative and ask for help when needed. You will not be phased by the need to constantly multitask as every day will be varied.

In short: Ambitious, confident, organised, resourceful and able to follow instructions.

This role may suit a college leaver/ A-Level/ B-Tec/ University graduate with some previous work experience.

Our Offer:

  • Industry standard salary.
  • 20 days paid holiday in addition to 8 days bank holidays.
  • Additional 6 days annual well-being and personal development days (after passing probation)
  • Generous investment in shadowing, mentoring, and learning opportunities with realistic opportunity for career progression.
