Looking for your first permanent step onto the admin ladder after temping for a while?  Or, perhaps you are an experienced administrator or receptionist looking to support a friendly team in a dynamic environment.  Maybe you are neither of these…..perhaps you are an HR graduate seeking experience within a related industry. 

Whatever your background, if you have some office-based administrative experience with intermediate Word & Excel skills and can demonstrate excellent organisational skills, with the ability to remain calm even when it’s manic, we want to hear from you! 

This is a truly diverse role.  Based on reception, your first-class customer service skills will come to the fore as you deal with a wide variety of people from all nationalities over the phone, via e-mail and face-to-face.  In addition, you will be given responsibility for a broad range of administrative duties, from updating the CRM database and ordering stationery and supplies to managing basic facilities and monitoring a number of e-mail accounts.

From an HR perspective, you will become involved with posting adverts, screening CVs, taking references and checking compliance documents.  You will also be required to check payroll documents, process new start details and keep track of holidays.  Whilst it would be beneficial if you already possess relevant experience in these areas, it is not essential, as training will be given.  However, proven accuracy and attention to detail with both numerical and written information is paramount.

A good understanding of IT is also required, as you will be the go-to contact for any technical problems, so patience and the ability to liaise between busy, non-technical people and IT gurus would be highly advantageous!

This is such a varied administrative role that we are looking for a true all-rounder!  However, attitude is by far the most important attribute – if you have a positive, cheerful approach to work, with a strong work ethic and desire to exceed expectations, then you will thrive!

Please note that this position is offered on a temporary basis initially, but with a view to becoming permanent, so applications will only be considered from candidates who are available for permanent work.

If you have the right background for this role and are keen to join a progressive organisation that takes pride in its reputation, then send your CV now to or call 0131 225 6898.
