An exciting opportunity has arisen for a highly motivated Administrative Support Officer to bring their skills to the East Sussex County Council, Early Help Service for families (0-19). Rated Outstanding by Ofsted, we are ambitious on behalf of the young people and families we work with and believe every role plays a key part in their success.

The vacant position will be working in the High Weald area, based from Uckfield Children’s Centre and supporting the local area with cover as necessary. This is a Maternity cover post.

This role is varied and require an ability to multi-task. You will be able to organise your own workload to meet the demands of a reactive and busy environment. Strong MS Office skills will be key to your success, as will good data inputting skills. You should be flexible and self-motivated with the ability to work independently as well as part of a team.

You need to be a great communicator, able to talk to a parent who has called in distress as well as working with partners and managers as part of an integrated Early Help Service which includes ESHT Health Visiting colleagues.

In return, we offer competitive pay, great opportunities for professional development, and the chance to be part of an outstanding organisation that is committed to bringing about change in the lives of vulnerable children and families.

Our Early Help practice is high impact. We know we are making a difference because that’s what children and young people tell us.

So, if you’d like to be part of our progressive team, apply NOW.

"The local authority is a strong, dynamic learning organisation that encourages self-reflection at all levels.” Ofsted
