We are looking for someone who has excellent administrative and organisational skills and experience. You should be used to working directly with the public and be able to demonstrate emotional resilience to deal with distressing situations and managing highly sensitive personal information. In addition to dealing with telephone enquiries you will need to be able to make electronic records and manage administrative processes.
