Job Description

Are you a confident person who is organised, positive and motivated? Are you looking for a Business Administration apprenticeship involving customer liaison, maintaining computer information, producing documents, booking appointments and welcoming visitors?
Full training on each task will be provided and ongoing coaching and mentoring is available as required and eventually duties will include the following: –

• Answer incoming phone calls and take messages as necessary
• Post including franking
• Post out payslips
• Filing
• Monitor stock levels of stationery (envelopes, paper, toner cartridges etc)
• Maintain stock levels of application forms, associated induction sheets and client policies
• Email out weekly timesheets
• Post vacancy adverts on CV Library, Universal Jobs, Facebook pages and Twitter
• Post interesting and appropriate news and announcements on Direct’s Facebook page and grow our following
• Develop and maintain database of workers
• Ring workers and candidates to fulfil client’s booking requirements
• Ring applicants and prospective candidates for industrial cleaning, production operative and forklift drivers and merchandising roles
• Ring applicants and prospective candidates in connection with other vacancies as and when required to support colleagues
• Registering new starters at our office

We would look for you to start with answering incoming phones calls and taking messages, however we would like for you to take on more as your confidence and knowledge grow until you are comfortable with all of the above tasks.

The ideal candidate will have a positive, can do attitude and an interest in recruitment would be advantageous. You will be of clean and presentable appearance and we do operate a casual dress code in the office unless we are receiving clients.

Core hours of work are 9.30am to 4.30pm Monday to Thursday . During busy periods you will be required to come in early and stay later to ensure business needs as met, therefore a flexible approach to work is essential. The rate of pay meets the national apprenticeship levels as a minimum however for the right candidate this is negotiable.
