Our client is a well-established and forward-thinking manufacturing business based in the Scarborough area who are looking for an office manager to help them fast track the next phase of their growth.
You will do this by making sure the office runs smoothly from receipt of order to despatch of goods, as well as taking responsibility for overhead functions such as HR, Health and Safety, accounts data input, and IT support.
This job is crucial in the smooth running of all back-office functions within the company. You will occupy a lynchpin role, overseeing and often undertaking back-office processes as part of a small team to ensure that the sales team can send out quotes easily, the manufacturing team has the materials required, the customers receive their goods, and accounts can be produced quickly and easily. The successful candidate will need to adopt existing processes but will have considerable scope to modify and improve these processes for future benefit of the company.
You could be accurately processing orders and coordinating them from start to finish, liaising with the production team, ordering supplies internationally and managing the logistics of the dispatch to a number of different countries around the world. Due to the nature of the role you will be building relationships with suppliers to support you with any issues that may arise with importing goods as well as maintaining a strong relationship with customers regarding their order and delivery.
You may also be the HR admin support for the business, logging new starters and finishers on the system, sending out contracts and other letters, setting up new starters on the IT equipment and generating passwords as well as monitoring holidays and sickness.
That’s why we are looking for someone who is an energetic, numerate, detail-oriented completer-finisher to ensure processes are maintained and improved over time. Integrity, confidentiality, flexibility, and initiative are all important characteristics for this role, due to the nature of the information handled and the no-two-days-the-same variety.
Someone who is fully computer literate with MS Office and able to work on their own initiative with a strong attention to detail.
Due to covid you have the ability to work from home on occasion, however there are days when you would be needed in the office to answer the phone and be part of meetings.
This vacancy is being advertised through KD Recruitment Limited who are operating as an Employment Agency.
