Full time, Permanent

We are seeking a professional and committed individual to join our small team in the role of Office Administrator. This person will provide high-quality, flexible administrative support across the East of England Local Government Association, based at West Suffolk House, Western Way, Bury St Edmunds.

The East of England LGA is a politically-led organisation which works on behalf of the 52 local councils in the East of England with an over-riding purpose “to support our member councils to be the best that they can be for their communities”. We work together with Local Government officers and Councillors to help them achieve this aim, providing specialist expertise, advice and practical assistance.

The Office Administrator is expected to take personal responsibility for a variety of tasks including setting up events, raising invoices, disseminating information, conducting surveys, organising meetings and preparing documentation.

The role requires good standards of literacy and numeracy and good IT skills, a commitment to high quality work and a focus on customer service. You must be able to contribute to a team approach in providing effective services to our member Councils, but also be able to confidently work under your own initiative and independently to resolve a range of issues.
