We are looking for highly motivated and skilled Executive Support Assistant. The position is to provide confidential, high quality support to the Directors and Assistant Directors of City of York Council.
The successful candidate will need to demonstrate a sound knowledge and understanding of the Council’s responsibilities and priorities. You will need to demonstrate excellent communications skills both written and verbal. You will need to be a strong team player, fully flexible with a high degree of interpersonal skills and the ability to work under pressure and on your own initiative. IT literate, highly proficient in the use of all Microsoft Office packages. Excellent organiser skilled at working to deadlines and establishing priorities in a demanding environment. Demonstrate the ability to develop and maintain positive internal and external stakeholder relationships.
At least 2 years’ experience of working at a similar level.
At the moment due to the impact of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, some of our staff are working remotely from home but a return to a combination of working remotely and physically from the Council’s offices is anticipated in the near future.
As a new starter, your contractual location will be the designated council office for your team. Your working arrangements will vary according to your service and role, and the current Government guidance. For many roles, there will be more opportunities in the future for remote and hybrid working. However, this comes with the expectation that, as workplaces open up, there is likely to be an ongoing and occasional requirement to attend the workplace.
The Council is committed to investing in the talent and wellbeing of our staff and can offer a generous annual leave allowance, access to the Local Government Pension Scheme, comprehensive Health & Wellbeing initiatives and a reward package which recognises your contribution. We can offer flexible working practices, community engagement and volunteer activities and, as part of our commitment to you, promote continuous Learning & Development. In addition we also offer a growing range of discounts, rewards and savings.
