Is this you?

As the Team Support in our office you will be someone with a very personable and helpful approach as the first point of contact for the organisation on the telephone and in the office and the go to person for colleagues internally.

You’ll love being organised and methodical in your work arranging meetings, booking venues, notifying visitors, organising catering, collating and disseminating papers, attending meetings and taking notes.

You can either speak Welsh with ease already or you’ll be happy to improve your existing Welsh language skills with support and encouragement, so that you can hold initial conversations with people on the telephone, in person, and in brief emails or through our social media channels.

You’ll understand how important it is for us to be super connected with others in the Public Sector and you’ll be someone who is naturally creative, good with technology and likes being super engaged on social media platforms.

You’ll be someone who will share our values in relation to improving the social, economic, environmental and cultural well- being of Wales and learn with us as we walk the talk.

We are an organisation which likes to think differently, to question and to try new ways of doing things, encouraging creativity and new ideas. So, we are looking for someone who enjoys helping others with their work, someone who likes to continually improve their performance and knowledge, and can work flexibly and independently in response to the needs of others.
