Business Support (nhs Afc: Band 4) - AdministratioCompany:
NHS England Location:
This is a rare and exciting opportunity for an individual looking to develop a career in communications to work in a small, dynamic and flexible business support team directly supporting the Director of Communications for NHS England. The role will provide exposure to communications at the very highest level of the NHS and allow the post holder to develop a comprehensive knowledge of how all forms of communications are developed and delivered in the NHS at a national level.
The post holder will work together with the Business Coordinator to provide the Director of Communications with high quality and comprehensive support, dealing with rapidly changing priorities and juggling a wide range of tasks that are often urgent, complex and sensitive. We organise briefings, manage communications, monitor issues, and handle the day to day business for the Director of Communications and at the heart of our work we need a well-organised Diary Assistant who can embrace this opportunity and work with the Business Coordinator to run the busy office of the Director of Communications, deputising for the Business Coordinator when appropriate.
What we are looking for:
We are looking for a highly organised, systematic and adaptable individual who can work to tight timescales while remaining reliable under pressure. You will need to be able to handle a range of issues with diplomacy and discretion.
Previous experience of diary management is preferable, but not essential; however a can-do attitude and collaborative, adaptive mentality are vital. We are looking for the type of person who can adapt rapidly and calmly to change, with an enthusiasm for development opportunities.
You will be able to organise and prioritise your workload while working both collaboratively and independently. You will proactively contribute to the work of the whole team, building great working relationships with colleagues and collaborators. You will be able to pick up new things quickly, developing a sound, high level knowledge of the business.
You will possess excellent written and verbal communication skills, while confidently liaising and negotiating with colleagues across NHS England, ministers´ offices, arm´s length bodies and elsewhere to ensure the reputation of the organisation and the Director of Communications is upheld.
