Typically, you’ll be involved in:
  • Providing a clerical and secretarial service for all activities of the home, including promotions
  • Taking minutes of meetings (including investigation and disciplinary meetings)

  • A good working knowledge of Microsoft Office packages including Outlook, Word and Excel is required.
