The post is based at Civic Centre 1, Huddersfield. The Business Support team is very busy with varied work that brings different challenges and conflicting priorities every day.

The Business Support Officer’s role is still evolving; this is an opportunity to help shape the role on how the team can best support the service and its customers. Some typical regular tasks that the team carry out:

  • Answering queries from the public or external partners on the support available
  • Relationship building with external partners, particularly with GP surgeries
  • Facilitating meetings (booking rooms, taking notes, circulating papers)
  • Supporting colleagues and managers with IT issues, formatting and/or creating documents
  • Raising invoices and purchase orders
  • Understanding data enough to extract simple reports
  • Monitoring a number of mailboxes

It is essential that you are familiar with computer packages such as Microsoft Word, Access and Excel and that you are able to demonstrate business admin skills to NVQ Level 2. You should also have a level of literacy and numeracy to be able to produce routine documentation and statistical information.
