Due to internal progression the Estates Team have an exciting opportunity for an enthusiastic administrator.
This role is varied, interesting and demanding, and vital to the running of our buildings. Without our ambulance stations, call centres and training facilities our service would not be able to function. The estates department is responsible for maintaining the buildings so that they work for our frontline staff and crews who serve our patients, as well as delivering projects, acquiring new buildings and disposing of old ones.
Our administrative assistant is a key role in our team. He/she will play an important role in running a number of processes and regular estates meetings, will monitor and make sure that our statutory checks and maintenance have been done, that our finances and filing is up-to-date, and will arrange meetings and diary management. This is a great role if you're looking for a varied and busy and challenging job. It is also a great way of seeing how an estates department works.
We can offer the usual excellent NHS package including generous annual leave, alongside a degree of continuing professional development which can be tailored to your needs.
The ideal candidate will have experience in similar fields, and may be looking to enter the career of the estate management and needs an opportunity to learn the basics and perhaps attend courses or even study towards a professional qualification.
The team comprises one head of estates, two estate managers and two estate officers, covering some 105 buildings across Oxfordshire, Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Hampshire and a few as far as Surrey and Sussex.
With such a small department looking after such a large area and so many buildings the administrative processes around the management of this are vital to the success of the operation.
