We're looking for a Facilities Assistant to join the team in Plymouth, providing crucial support to the whole office. The hours will be 9am to 5pm Monday to Friday. This is a fixed term contract for 3 months.
What will you be doing?
The Facilities Assistant role is a busy one and requires someone who is resourceful and organised.

Essentially the role will involve processing all mail (incoming and outgoing), high volumes of photocopying and scanning, as well as printing emails and other large documents.

This includes our catering facilities, reception teams, building maintenance, post room and operational support. We couldn't function without them.
What skills are needed?
This role needs some previous office based experience. You'll need to be able to multi-task but still maintain attention to detail, you'll be a motivated team-player with excellent communication skills and have the ability to be flexible and consistently helpful. You must also be self-motivated and have the ability to work on your own initiative. Strong IT skills are needed as you'll be operating some complex equipment but don't worry we will give you training.
