We are recruiting for a new position of Office Administrator to work closely with the Managing Director and also the Office Administrator in a small office environment (1 Director (office & field based), 1 Office Manager, 2 Sale Consultants (home based), 1 Tele-Marketer). This role would work on a part-time basis but for the right candidate full-time could also be considered.

You will be working in a highly entrepreneurial environment which requires being able to organise scheduled activities required on a daily/weekly basis, whilst remaining flexible and being able to multi-task and switch between projects which the director is currently working on.
