Business Support Officer job with London Borough of Richmond upon Thames and London Borough of Wandsworth

Are you highly organized and have an eye for detail?

Are you an experienced business support or administrative professional looking for a new challenge?

If so, then we might have the perfect role for you!

An exciting opportunity has arisen in the Children’s Services Business Support Department for two full-time Business Support Officers to work in our amazing Front Door department. Come join the team!

Our vision

The Business Support Service vision is simple: “to implement a robust, flexible and resilient Business Support Service across all child services”.

About the role

For these roles, attention to detail is crucial. These services work with families in acute crisis, so emotions are often running high. These are fast services that operate under tight deadlines and are not for the faint-hearted. If you like challenges, this position could be for you!

While primarily supporting a particular department, you will also be a team player in the wider Business Support department, as we require all Business Support Officers to have a flexible approach to supporting other areas and may even sometimes be required to work elsewhere in management. The roles report to a Senior Business Support Officer, in each service, who manages the service area within Children’s Services. They will ensure that you get all the support, training and development you need to be able to successfully undertake your role.

Please note that although we offer work from home, it is expected that the successful candidate will report to the office once a week and we have a work from home rotation system.
