Business Support is key to the success of our Adult Social Care and Safeguarding Services because our Business Support teams are there, making sure things run smoothly, so that our frontline colleagues can deliver our services out in the community. All that work in the background doesn’t just happen, it takes dedicated colleagues, taking pride in their work and seeing a purpose in the work they are doing.


Supporting our adult social care operational teams across a range of services including Strategic Management, Safeguarding, First Contact, and Learning Disabilities, the primary aim of these roles is to provide dedicated administrative support working closely with our Operational Team Managers and our Social Work staff enabling them to concentrate on the people who need our support.  Importantly everything we do in Business Support, will have a positive impact on people across Staffordshire.

The main duties will tend to include:


  • Maintaining and monitoring ICT systems including the input and retrieval of data Producing high level, accurate documents Minute taking at meetings Varied administrative and customer care duties





What do we need from you?


Working in Business Support requires teamwork, good organisational skills and a good level of competency using IT systems.


You’ll also need:


  • Good communication skills because you’ll interact with lots of people across the organisation and externally through phone, in person and email A flexible approach to work as sometimes things can change, and so you’ll need to be able to prioritise work and sometimes change tasks quickly A passion to always give the best service



But it’s important to note that if you’re unsure whether your experience or skills are suitable please get in touch with the recruiting manager (01785 356832) and we can give you a bit more information.


The role will be part of the Business Support Service so there may be a requirement to work from other offices,  when required.   We are, however, currently working both from the office and remotely and it is anticipated that this will continue.
