We are seeking to recruit an Administrator to provide administrative support to the Executive Group of the Shanidar TSA.

Ideally you will have extensive experience of working in an administrative role, be an expert in using Microsoft Excel, have excellent communication and interpersonal skills combined with strong organisational and administrative abilities.
