Job Description

A fantastic opportunity has arisen for a talented and confident PA to provide professional administrative and secretarial support to the Senior Leadership Group of West Dunbartonshire Council. You will be supporting two Chief Officers within the team.

You will be working at a senior level in a fast-paced and busy environment which will call upon you to respond quickly to changing priorities, as well as be prepared for future activity. In addition to planning work schedules, diary appointments and prioritising requests, you will also be a trusted support in often highly confidential matters.

This is a demanding post and the successful candidate will need to be resilient, highly organised, a problem solver and able to use their own initiative. It is also an exceptional role that offers a varied and rewarding opportunity for the right individual.

About You:

You will have extensive previous experience working within an office environment at a senior level. With excellent attention to detail and strong IT skills, in particular Excel, PowerPoint and Word, you will have the ability to demonstrate decision making skills and be able to work under pressure and to strict deadlines. You will also be qualified to HNC/SVQ level 3 or equivalent.

Also crucial to the role will be your excellent organisational and planning skills and your ability to communicate at all levels both internally and externally. Being self-motivated and able to work under pressure is key to this role and time management skills are essential in providing that support. You must be highly pro-active in the working arrangements of the Chief Officers and provide a high level of support in a professional manner.

If you wish further information on this or an informal discussion about the role, please contact George Hawthorn 07903-010-404.
