This year, our beloved Office Administrator, Jo Hockey, will be reducing her days from four to two in order to complete more study. As a result, we are currently seeking a suitable applicant to work a total of two days per week in a job-sharing arrangement. The position of Office Administrator is a diverse role that makes an important contribution to the life and work of our church. In combination with a range of administrative tasks, the role also has a pastoral element in the interaction with people visiting the church office, calling by phone, or contacting via email. The applicant will need to have a high level of attention to detail, superb organisational skills, the ability to learn quickly, and to multi-task efficiently. The applicant also needs to have clear communication skills (in person, telephone, and written), a willingness to be flexible, and the ability to work both autonomously and as part of diverse ministry team (volunteer and paid).
We are seeking a mature and responsible person who has excellent telephone manner, is computer literate (with high proficiency with Microsoft Office), has typing skills, is able to personally assist the Senior Minister, maintain our databases, and carry out general office duties. Whilst not essential, applicants with graphic design skills and experience (particularly with the Adobe Creative Suite) will be considered favourably.
This position will be two days per week and work closely with another employee in a job-share arrangement. This position is in compliance with duties which are now governed by Fair Work and in accordance with the Clerical Award. The office is open from 9.00 am – 3.00 pm, Monday to Thursday.
There are no set educational or experience requirements for the position, however, the combination of both will be taken into account.
Applicants should provide a CV, a cover letter, and two references. Applications should be emailed by Friday January 20 (5PM) to Adam Lowe at firstname.lastname@example.org (for more information call Adam on 0410 512 782).
