When most people read about an admin role they might think of Doris in a green pleated floral dress (or perhaps frock would be a better word) being the only person sat in the office, sticking labels on envelopes all day and making weak cups of tea. Do you hear that? Silence...with the occasional click of the stapler. There's no whirring of a computer because Doris is probably still using a type-writer. Perhaps at best she has moved on to fax, but unlikely.

This ain't no ordinary admin job, yo.

Ok enough with the modern slang. The office is lively, buzzing, and there's three other admin-y people in there with you. WOOP, FRIENDS!

Yes this is an office/desk-based job, but you'll ironically probably be rushed off your feet. Engineers to organise, equipment to book, managers to liaise with, documents to file, generally sh*t to get done!

Time time time. Time-keeping is key and your organisational skills will be enviable of those gym rats who prep all of their meals for the week on a Sunday night and even have time to post it on Instagram. Imagine the tupperware containers of chicken breast and steamed veg for 7 days straight lined up on your kitchen top; that is the level of dedication and organisation we are talking. Don't worry there aren't actually any meals to prep. Just a metaphor.

Motivation to stick to tight deadlines and be a go-getter is key. You gotta send that email. You gotta make that phone call. You gotta chase that one person that never gets back to you. One thing you don't gotta be is disengaged and bored! Because that sort of thing doesn't happen to you.

It doesn't really matter what the company hiring specialise in as it isn't important for your application, however for the sake of job board regulations and doing things by the book, if you've come from an admin/office manager role in an engineering or construction environment you'll already be half perfect for the job. Ideally you'll drive a vehicle and be commutable to High Wycombe.

The salary is £22,000 to £27,000 but could be flexible for a cracking admin superstar. The package includes pension and private healthcare - excellent.
