Vacancy – Contracts Executive (Maternity cover)

Do you love detail and order? Are you good with people?

Our lovely Contracts Executive Tania is going to have a baby – yippee. The downside is we need someone to cover her maternity leave! This gives you a fabulous opportunity to get your teeth into a very interesting role and join our fantastic team. If you are good with detail, great with people and very organised this will be the perfect role for you.

Working in our central St Ives office for 40 hours a week M-F. We also work 1 Saturday morning in 3 for which is time taken in lieu. We would consider a job share of 2 part time people, provided we could still cover the overall hours.

Starting Salary £20,000-£22,000 p.a. based on experience, paid monthly, plus team bonus.

The role may suit someone from accountancy background (who is fed up with figures!) or a compliance background (e.g. insurance, solicitors office). This would not be suitable for a trainee.

We ideally need someone who has the following attributes – however this is an ideal wish list – none of us are a perfect match for our jobs! So, if you think you meet some of these attributes then please apply:

  • Able to meet deadlines in a busy target driven environment
  • Able to work in a systematic and structured way to ensure nothing gets missed

  • Able to recognise new or irregular issues, take initiative to understand and address these or, where needed, seek advice to get resolved.
  • Able to communicate openly, positively and confidently with others in written and verbal English
  • Excellent Interpersonal skills
  • Prefers ensuring even the detailed aspects of a job are properly completed
  • Prefers completing all work on time, or before

  • Able to complete general office administration tasks well
  • Able to work with colleagues of different skills as part of an effective team
