Do you have exceptional administrative and organisational skills? Are you keen to work with a creative, award-winning communications and marketing team?

The Disabilities Trust is a national charity providing NHS and local authority- funded support for adults with complex disabilities and for young people with autism. We're recruiting for a Communications Support Officer to join our communications team at the Trust's national office in Burgess Hill, West Sussex. With a network of high quality services for people with brain injury and autism, including two rated 'Outstanding' by the care watchdog, and an exciting five year development plan, we have a lot to communicate!

As our Communications Support Officer, you will be providing secretarial support to the Director and administrative back-up to the eight-strong team.

The successful candidate will:

provide excellent diary management and meeting support for the Director
administer the Staff Awards scheme and assist with the organisation of events including the annual Staff Awards ceremony and Managers' Conference
administer team invoicing and purchase order procedures, using the Trust's e-finance systems
manage annual leave, training and staff sickness records for the team
