Lead Team Administrator
£23,000 pa plus excellent benefits
35 hours per week
The Lead Team Administrator is a crucial role at the Diocese, as you will provide senior administrative support to enable the planning and co-ordinating of all team activities, in order to serve our member schools, churches and children and young people effectively.
Reporting to the Deputy Director of Education and primarily working within the Children, Schools and Young People team, you will also provide Executive Assistant support to the Director and senior officers, managing stakeholder related meetings and relevant workstreams. This includes managing diaries, schedules and communications, along with taking accurate and comprehensive minutes or notes and following up on agreed actions.
As Lead team Administrator you will act as first point of contact for the team, ensuring that all processes run smoothly and competently, and that all enquiries are managed efficiently and effectively.
Educated to a good standard, you should have first class administrative and customer service skills, along with substantial interpersonal, communication and organisational abilities.
Experience of minute taking and excellent report writing abilities are essential, along with a background of working with and influencing a wide range of people at all levels of an organisation. Knowledge of basic database management is crucial, whilst experience of providing Executive/Personal Assistant support to senior managers would be desirable.
Working in our central support service team, it would be beneficial but not essential for you to have an understanding of how the Church of England is structured along with an interest and empathy in the work and mission of the Canterbury.
You will be required to travel across the Diocese for meetings, so the ability to travel to remote locations and work flexibly is a necessity.
Canterbury Diocese is the oldest diocese in England, stretching from Maidstone to Thanet, the Isle of Sheppey to the Romney Marsh. We have 350 miles of coastline with historic ports and seaside resorts, alongside rural communities, market towns and commuter-belt urban developments. Affluent areas often sit alongside pockets of major deprivation, offering an exciting and challenging mission context.
At the heart of all we do is a vision of transformation for ourselves and our communities: no one can encounter God and remain unchanged. In the Diocese of Canterbury, we want to increasingly become a Christian community transformed through encounter with Christ, growing and overflowing to transform and bless the families, homes and communities we serve: Changed Lives, Changing Lives.
