Charity People are delighted to be working with a national homelessness charity to recruit a dynamic and dedicated Business Support Officer.
The charity makes a positive impact on the lives of young people and adults facing homelessness by providing support and housing services, focusing on preventing homelessness, enhancing resilience, and creating opportunities for employment, education, training, and volunteering.
The Business Support Officer will play a crucial role in the efficient and effective management of office operations and administration, supporting the Executive Team, Area Director, Facilities Manager, and Finance Manager. The role encompasses office management responsibilities, coordination of administrative duties, and the provision of governance support.
The Business Support Officer will have experience in office management and managing equipment contracts and supplies. The successful candidate will have experience in providing governance support to formal meetings, as well as the ability to coordinate events and manage time-limited projects. You will have demonstrable experience of working in a busy office environment with a strong focus on health and safety and a clear understanding of safeguarding requirements and procedures. You will have strong communication skills and approach all that you do with personal and professional integrity. You will be motivated, logical, adaptable and be able to demonstrate a persistent approach to tasks, and be able to work independently, effectively prioritise your workload and supervise others. You will be proficient in Microsoft 365 (Word, Outlook and Excel).
The successful candidate will be committed to Depaul's values and ethos, including promoting diversity and equality. The role is based in the London office near London Bridge. The charity operates a hybrid working model. Due to the nature of this role, you will be in the office a minimum of 3-4 days per week (the ideal candidate would be in the office 5 days). There will be some flexibility needed to travel within the UK. The charity are committed to providing opportunities for professional development. The role is initially on a 6-12 month fixed term contract, but there may be potential for this to become a permanent position.
This is an exciting opportunity to be part of a supportive and vibrant team. If you are excited by this opportunity and have the relevant skills and experience to apply, we would be delighted to hear from you.
