We are looking for someone with the confidence and skills to contribute to the work of the new Skills Academy. You must be able to plan ahead, be thorough and have an eye for detail - and you must also be able to think on your feet. You will bring creative new ideas to the team and be able to multi-task, prioritise and work efficiently to tight deadlines.
Experience of marketing and administration is preferred but we don't expect you to know everything. We are looking for someone who has a positive and proactive attitude and an appetite to learn and progress. With the organisation expanding its work in key areas, this is a great opportunity to help shape new online learning resources.
Experience with Moodle - or a similar platform - is an advantage but not a prerequisite. You will have a friendly and professional manner in communicating with learners, tutors and the incumbent team. You will be responsible for taking bookings so understanding customer needs is vital.
Successful candidates will enjoy dealing with people at all levels who come from a range of different backgrounds and all walks of life. You will be communicating with learners, and industry professions on all levels daily, so you'll need to combine professionalism and confidence with diplomacy and sensitivity.
It is also essential that you have an excellent standard of English and good writing ability as well as digital and IT skills.
This full-time post attracts an annual salary of £20,000-£25,000 (depending on experience) with probationary, annual and promotion salary reviews.
Other financial benefits include a five per cent employer pension contribution, life insurance, company bonus scheme and 25 days of holiday.
There are staff events and personal development training opportunities and a great working environment, and our client promotes work-life balance and support staff who have family responsibilities and particular needs.
The job is normally based in beautiful offices near Saffron Walden although due to the current pandemic some staff are working from home as well as occasionally working in the office.
