PA to Director 12 Month FTC 
Location: Northampton 
£Competitive Salary + Benefits
Hours: 08:00 - 16:30 Monday to Friday. 
 
Are you looking for a new challenge to utilise your broad PA experience? Have you previously supported a Director and managed a busy, ever changing diary? Do you take pride in taking ownership of providing a comprehensive and confidential service? If so, we want to hear from you!
 
At Travis Perkins we have an opportunity for a Personal Assistant to Regional Director opportunity within our Northampton site to cover maternity leave for a fixed period of one year effective from the beginning of May 2020. This role is to support three Regional Directors and one Sales Director based within the Midlands with a confidential and organised secretarial and administrative service. Providing efficient administrative support to the Directors, you will ensure briefs, documentation and all relevant information is accurate and provided in a timely manner for meetings, events and other activities. You will have a great impact in improving the efficiency of the departmental processes by managing their diaries and meeting organisation. You will be responsible for ensuring deadlines and the Regional Directors day-to-day needs are met. The demands of the business can fluctuate  so the ability to prioritise your workload efficiently whilst keeping calm and approachable is essential. You will also be required to prepare agendas and appropriate documentation for all Branch Manager and Assistant Branch Manager meetings that are chaired by the Regional Directors. These meetings will involve adhoc travel to take action notes as and when required. You will also be the point of contact for Branch Managers and Assistant Branch Managers within the three subregions, assisting them with any queries as necessary concerning the Regional Directors. 
 
This is a great opportunity if you enjoy having the freedom to manage your own workload and thrive in ensuring deadlines are met. Utilising your previous Personal Assistant experience, you will be joining a dedicated and easy going, close-knit team. As you will be joining a fast paced team, your strong organisational and excellent attention to detail will be utilised on a daily basis, within this varied PA opportunity, alongside your excellent IT skills in Google Apps.
 
What you’ll need to know:
  • You will be joining an up-beat, friendly and hardworking team, where your proactive attitude and self starter mindset will be a great fit!
  • Having previous experience within a similar role, you will be able to identify ways of improving efficiencies of the departmental processes and drive improvements.
  • Your excellent interpersonal skills will be key for you to succeed in building strong stakeholder relationships.
 
If you’re looking for a job that is challenging, but has its rewards then apply today. We’d love to tell you more and share our story with you.
 
Joining Travis Perkins as our new Personal Assistant means joining a reputable and expanding business offering great company benefits such as discounts across our Group and the support of an employer who values your development as much as you do.
