What you’re great at:

We are looking for an Apprentice PA to join Dorset Councils Partnership.  You will be a proactive, organised individual with good attention to detail and a keen interest to learn.  

You will have a positive ‘can do’ attitude and be a confident communicator.  You will have a good working knowledge of a wide range of IT applications including Microsoft Outlook, Word, PowerPoint and Excel.

What you will own and how you will grow:

This is an exciting opportunity for an apprentice to join an enthusiastic team of PAs who will support you as you progress in the role.  You will assist the PAs with the work demands of the Senior Leadership Team (Chief Executive and Directors) and the overall organisational effectiveness across Dorset Councils Partnership.  There may also be the opportunity to assist with duties for the wider Corporate Management Team and Council Leaders.

Over the 12 month apprenticeship, you will provide administrative support to the Executive Assistant and PAs by undertaking a variety of tasks such as dealing with the post, assisting with correspondence monitoring and assisting with organising meetings and events.  You will have the opportunity to build on your customer care skills by way of answering phone calls, collecting visitors and providing hospitality.

This is an excellent opportunity to gain exposure in a Local Government environment to improve your skills and knowledge to develop your career.

As an Apprentice for Dorset Councils Partnership, you will be part of a transforming organisation.  With an apprenticeship, you can earn a salary and gain a recognised qualification, while acquiring valuable workplace skills and experience.  We will support you to get the most out of your experience with us and to obtain your apprenticeship qualifications.

What we are about:

This is a pivotal time for our councils as we transform and modernise services to enable the Partnership’s transformation ambitions.  We are on a digital journey to provide the best online services for those that wish to use them, to allow us more time to support those that need us most.

Dorset Councils Partnership believes that people do their best work if we make it easier for them to meet their personal responsibilities.  The Partnership promotes innovative flexible working to support and encourage anyone who requires this flexibility to balance work and life.  The Partnership is committed to making our recruitment process barrier-free and as inclusive as possible for everyone.

How to apply:

To apply for this job, please read through the advert and then follow the ‘Apply for this job’ link.  In the ‘Relevant Experience’ section of the application, you will be expected to explain why you think you are suitable for this role.  Please give examples that clearly demonstrate your skills, knowledge and experience.
