We are looking for experienced administrators to join our team of bank workers supporting our permanent administrators within the Children, Families & Learning Business Support Teams throughout Surrey.

You will organise multiagency meetings on behalf of the social care teams, liaise with professionals both within Social Care and with other agencies, keep track of information, update and maintain spreadsheets and databases, take meeting notes and subsequently distribute to involved parties, ensuring timescales are met and provide performance information.
You will be highly organised and willing to take responsibility, use initiative and be comfortable in setting your own priorities while meeting deadlines. You will make sure that everything is in place to guarantee that all runs smoothly for the processes and teams you support.
Excellent interpersonal skills are essential along with a high level of written and oral communication. You will have experience of working with highly confidential information in a customer focused environment and can work under pressure, to tight deadlines.
