Our team

Business Support is key to the success of our Children’s Services because our Business Support teams are there, making sure things run smoothly, so that our frontline colleagues can deliver for children and families 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.

Our role

The successful candidate will provide core business functions in addition to working closely with a range of professionals and multi-agency partners.  This will include attending and servicing a variety of meetings across the District/s.

You will need full knowledge of Microsoft Office 365 and the ability to utilise the main applications. You’ll also chase workers for paperwork to make sure work is completed to the required deadlines. A part of this role is inputting data in our database, sharing data, and helping to ensure the data base is up to date and ensuring its accurate by cleansing data as and when needed. You will also undertake collating and recording of financial information. In addition, there will be the opportunity to support wider more generic office functions to support the delivery of all business support services. 

What you’ll bring

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
  • Good organisation skills and attention to detail, as you’ll be keeping data updated and you’ll be working to deadlines
  • 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 claire.rushton@staffordshire.gov.uk and we can give you a bit more information.
