Our administrators play a key role in supporting the Council - helping us provide a better service to the children and families of East Sussex. You will be joining the Inclusion and Special Educational Needs and Disability (ISEND) Service and will be part of the admin team that supports the Intervention and Support services.

The post holder will have line management responsibilities and will be expected to support the Office Manager and deputise in their absence.

The ability to multitask, be flexible and work well under pressure is essential. Strong Microsoft Office skills, attention to detail and accuracy and the ability to use your own initiative are key. You will be reliable and dependable, have excellent communication skills and a real passion for delivering outstanding customer service. You will also be able to demonstrate the ability to guide and support Administrative Support Assistants to perform to the best of their ability.

This varied and demanding role offers the opportunity to expand on existing knowledge and skills by working with an experienced administration team and would suit an experienced manager or someone looking to take their first step into line management.
