PA to Director of Care
At St Peter & St James Hospice we provide high quality specialist palliative and end of life care for patients with cancer and other life-limiting conditions across East and West Sussex. An opportunity has arisen for an experienced Personal Assistant to join our team.
You will provide responsive, proactive and comprehensive Personal Assistant support to the Director of Care/Registered Manager and will use your excellent organisational and planning skills to facilitate the smooth running of their workload.
Using sound judgement skills and initiative, you should be able to anticipate and resolve competing priorities professionally and calmly. You will possess strong interpersonal and communication skills which will enable you to liaise confidently with internal and external staff and stakeholders at all levels of seniority. Experience of working alongside volunteers would be advantageous.
You will have substantial experience of working in an administrative role and will have skills in telephone based communication as well as face to face, minute taking and reception duties. A working knowledge and experience of Microsoft Office packages is essential for this role. Experience of transferring information into report templates is desirable since the Registered Manager is required to submit various reports to external partners and our regulator, the Care Quality Commission.
The successful applicant will be joining the organisation at an exciting time as we initiate our clinical strategy with the aim of providing fully integrated services and extending our reach and influence in our local community.
We are located in a peaceful woodland setting in North Chailey where there is free onsite parking, free teas and coffees and subsidised staff meals. We offer a generous pension and 25 days annual leave, plus bank holidays. You will need your own reliable transport to get to the site.
