Overall a good employer.
Pros: free life cover, staff benefits, enjoyed the job
Cons: made redundant!
A typical day at work would involve general administration duties, supporting the Operations Manager/Development Officers/Project Workers, Coding invoices for Head Office payment, chasing invoice payments, chasing supplier items, ordering stores/stationery/office furniture/services/training, raising purchase orders, petty cash, banking, reconciliation – more... sheets, Premises Health & Safety compliance, Tenants' queries/concerns, reception duties, internal/external invoicing for services supplied, post (incoming distribution/opening/dealing with-outgoing, postage,etc). Meeting room booking diary, reception duties. And other duties as required.
I learned a great deal. It was a varied post with a wide range of duties and needed a lot of experience/flexibility/people skills etc.
I had a good working relationship with my line manager - he knew he could trust me to get the job done, whatever he assigned to me.
The hardest part of the job was the (often) sad circumstances of the clients).
The most enjoyable part of the job was the varied duties which meant I was continually learning new skills and applying established ones. – less
