Senior Business Support Officer (5 days)

S01 (in the region of £32, 577)

Closing date:  12th July 2019

Interviews:  Week commencing 15th July

Family Support is an independent organisation providing services to the local authority, London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham.  Our independence allows us to be agile in the way we deliver our service and requires that our staff are agile and flexible. We are currently looking for a Senior business support officer, to provide a first-class service to our colleagues and our families.

The successful candidate will manage and oversee a team of support officers, providing the administration to a team of professionals (Social Workers, Family Support Practitioners, Early Years Advisors and Children’s Centres) in Hammersmith and Fulham.   You will be accountable to a Locality Manager and responsible for the smooth running of various back office and frontline administrative tasks within various localities throughout Hammersmith.

You will supervise up to 5 members of the business support team and be expected to act as a mentor for junior colleagues demonstrating best practices and behaviours. You will be required to work out of different Hammersmith and Fulham sites and have day to day flexibility as things change.  This role does require an individual who is able to cope under pressure when assisting vulnerable members of the community and also be the front of house welcome to many different people.

Strong IT skills are required along with an ability to independently problem solve.  Experience using systems such as Office 365, Excel, Mosaic and Estart are a distinct advantage.  This role does require an exceptionally well organised individual with a resilient approach to getting the job done.

Together we have an ambitious plan to deliver more responsive and impactful early intervention that works in partnership with other organisations, the community and families.  We want to see life chances enhanced and over ten years the cost (both human and financial) of failure reduced.  We need leaders who are up for a challenge, are willing to take responsibility and who share and want to be a part of our vision. 

So if that is you, and you have the experience, drive and appropriate qualification (business support and administration) that we are looking for then please do apply.
