HELPDESK CO-ORDINATOR

JOB DESCRIPTION

We have a vacancy for a part-time helpdesk co-ordinator.

This is a flexible 16 to 20 hours a week role, desk-based in Bethnal Green, with a strong administrative focus. It's also a graduate position requiring exceptional organisational skills. Any degree subject will be taken into consideration for this role.

The position involves liaising with clients and engineers on the phone and by email, with possible progression towards on-site support. Therefore, a friendly manner and a good command of English, both verbal and written, are important. Candidates must be able to relay information in a complete, precise and accurate manner. This is an extremely busy role where the ability to manage your own workload is key.

We are looking for someone with good communication skills, who is able to help clients' staff at all hierarchical levels. If you think that grammar, punctuation, or a keen sense of service are outmoded, please don't apply for this job.

We are a very small team, and are therefore unable to micro-manage anyone. Independence, initiative, a positive attitude, and the ability to work alone as well as with colleagues are also quite important.

An interest in social enterprise or civil society would be beneficial.
Any IT knowledge would be an advantage, but technical training will be provided.

BENEFITS

This is an ideal opportunity to gain a huge amount of practical skills in a short time, which would give you an edge in interviews when looking for your next job. Remote and flexible working are possible some of the time; however, you must be prepared to work between 10:00 and 14:00 at least two days per week most weeks (within Monday to Friday). You will never be required to work weekends. Job-sharing and working only school hours are very welcome arrangements. We believe that parents deserve a good work-life balance.

We are a social enterprise and are based in London. We are an equal opportunities employer and pay all our staff above the London living wage.

PERSON SPECIFICATION

Essential skills: degree educated, excellent organisational skills, intelligence, attention to detail, dedication and tenacity.

The position involves working in a small team, so the ability to work well at all levels and get on with the work to hand, often working to tight deadlines, is important. Applicants who are not degree-educated might be considered for this position only if they have over two years' experience and an exceptionally professional manner. A DBS (CRB) check will be performed on the successful candidate prior to starting in the role.

An interest in social enterprise or civil society would be beneficial.

Please email your CV to stuart@thebluelizard.co.uk. Agencies, please note that we will systematically ignore you. Only direct applicants should contact us.
