If you take pride in completing your work to a high level, providing input to improving and developing processes, and want to become part of a supportive team, we want to hear from you. We have two Support Officer positions available! 


About the role

There's lots to do in this job. Your main focus will be providing administrative & logistical support to a range of Teams within the Regulation and Assurance Branch.  This will include arranging meetings, sourcing rooms, taking minutes and responding to the changing needs of the business. In this role you will have the opportunity to work with various directorates across the branch and to backfill a range of roles.


You need to be agile, adaptable and quick to pick up things.  We need you to have a can do attitude, be a team player, strong on systems and processes and able to cope with making changes on the fly.  Being speedy in MS word is a given, being a whiz with a spreadsheet and tech savvy is a must.
