Attention, Organised Admin Types: We’re Hiring!

Admin Assistant, Byker

£8.76 per hour

We’re looking for a new team member for our Byker ‘head office’. This post will be part-time, 16hrs a week.

You’ll need to be organised and methodical. Preferably, you’ll have worked in an office of a small business or charity, and have experience of the sort of paperwork and documents that get generated. Ideally you’ll have also worked processing invoices etc, along with having an understanding of the broad principles of profit and loss, and cash management.

You must be IT literate. You need to be comfortable enough with applications like Word, Excel, Google Drive, Google Docs and Gmail to be able to help us develop ways of doing things efficiently and repeatably. The ideal candidate will also have experience of data entry for Sage or similar software, and either qualified as or willing to undertake training as an accountancy technician.

You’ll be expected to have a firm commitment to Recyke y’Bike’s values: Equality and diversity; Community participation; sustainability and recycling; and Promotion of cycling. You must be a team player, able to get on with the other staff and volunteers.

Flexibility is important for this role, both in terms of the scope of the job (e.g. you may be asked to help in our shops to cover holidays), and the hours you work, which may change with mutual agreement. Currently holidays are 28 days a year pro-rata, and you’ll be enrolled in a contributory pension scheme.

We’ll be interviewing for this post in the last week of April. The expected start date is in May. Application forms are available from any of our shops, or on our web site. If you’re thinking of applying, we’d encourage you to pop into our Byker workshop for an informal chat with the general manager, Karl.
