We are currently recruiting a number of Administrators to join our small but busy team in Wakefield.
- We are happy for the right candidates to start almost immediately
- Working hours: Monday to Friday between 8.30am and 4.30pm or 9am and 5pm (we work 35 hours per week).
- You will be working for a well-established organisation: City & Guilds
- Roles are initially available as 6 month fixed term contracts.
Perfect for someone from an administrative or customer service background, however we also really encourage career changers (for example someone wanting a change from hospitality or retail perhaps), school or colleague leavers, people looking for their first job or people wanting to get back into work. Don’t be put off if you haven’t done a role like this before, we’re interested in your transferable skills and what you can bring to the role, not your previous job experience or your qualifications.
Our diverse teams are full of different personalities and backgrounds and the role is a great way to start your career development here!
This appointment will be made on merit.
We believe that diversity and inclusion strengthens and enriches us, and that it is the responsibility of everyone at the City & Guilds Group to drive this value. As ethnic minority groups and disabled people are currently under-represented within the Group, we particularly encourage and welcome applications from these communities.
About the role
In this role you will provide support across a range of quality related queries. You'll deal with those queries by both telephone and email. The role is broad and has other administrative responsibilities - processing expense claims from our associates in quality, for example.
Our Administrators also undertake data input and management, across a number of different systems and including the use of Excel spreadsheets.
You must be someone who is organised and familiar with or has a willingness to adapt quickly to an administrative role. You need to have confidence in using Windows 10, Microsoft Word, outlook etc. and most importantly know your way around an Excel spreadsheet or two!
Our Story And Mission
Our vision is for a world in which everyone has the skills and opportunities to succeed. We support almost five million people each year to develop skills that help them into a job, develop on that job and to prepare for their next job. As a charity, we’re proud that everything we do is focused on achieving this purpose.
Through our assessment and credentialing, corporate learning and technical training offers, we partner with our customers to deliver work-based learning programmes that build competency to support better prospects for people, organisations and wider society. We create flexible learning pathways that support lifelong employability, because we believe that people deserve the opportunity to (re)train and (re)learn again and again – gaining new skills at every stage of life, regardless of where they start.
At the heart of our business sits the City & Guilds Foundation which amplifies our purpose by helping to remove barriers to getting into a job, celebrating best practice on the job, and advocating for jobs of the future.
We were founded in 1878 by the City of London and the trade guilds of the time, to help people, organisations and economies to develop their skills for growth.
Our rich experience means we’re uniquely positioned to understand the future of work and learning. And, we continually evolve to develop and deliver skills for the workplace of the future. Today, as well as qualifications and assessment, we offer digital credentialing, elearning technologies, executive leadership development, technical training and consultancy.
Our success is driven by the people we work with. We pride ourselves on our ability to offer an equal opportunity to all our staff and we value diversity within our inclusive culture. We recognise that a diverse workforce is the only way we will achieve our ambitious business goals, so we work hard to be flexible to accommodate everyone.
What We Offer
We offer the opportunity to work in an innovative, engaging and market-leading organisation with opportunities to develop your existing skills and explore new ones.
You’ll receive an excellent benefits package which typically includes a great base salary, 25 days holiday plus bank holidays, pension, private healthcare, volunteering opportunities and much more.
We welcome a discussion about how this role could work flexibly for you. For example work pattern, hours or location.
