Based within our Head Office there will be requirements for face to face meetings with team members. The successful candidate will be responsible for engaging with all new applications, keep track of all applicant progressions, and manage all administrative duties.

This role is a vital first link to our applicants and supporting them in their transition from the military into employment. This is a challenging role in a fast paced, target driven and demanding environment and this brings great rewards. The role will suit an individual who has experience of working in an office, has a great personality, and an excellent communicator. The successful applicant should have an exemplary telephone manner managing both incoming and outgoing calls.
