Full time, 35 hours per week

Contract type: Permanent 

The City of London Corporation is the City of opportunities, diversity, social impact and commercial influence. Our work touches lives not just in the Square Mile or even in London, but across the UK and beyond. The work we do is a catalyst for economic and social progress and you could play an important part.

As one of three Personal Assistant and Member Services Officers, you’ll provide wide-ranging, proactive support to Members of the City of London Corporation. You’ll support activities on behalf of our Members – from the ongoing training and development that enables them to do the best possible job for local residents, businesses and visitors, through to supporting their participation in a variety of important meetings. What’s more, you will provide personal assistance and administrative support to senior elected Members of the Court of Common Council where required, in support of your colleagues. This will range from managing diaries and confidential files, to arranging meetings and travel, to acting as a first point of contact and handling enquiries by phone, email, official correspondence and face-to-face.

We are looking for a candidate who will be able to lead on our extensive and Member Learning and Development Programme, and support the delivery of a comprehensive Induction Programme following our all-out elections in March 2025.

To join us you’ll need demonstrable administrative experience, supporting a senior manager or leader and/or experience in the development and delivery of learning and development programmes within a similar setting. You’re highly organised yet flexible, with plenty of initiative. Your IT skills span the Microsoft Office suite and other administrative systems. Crucially, you’re an excellent communicator – whether producing minutes, briefings and correspondence, or liaising with, advising and inspiring confidence in senior people from a range of backgrounds.

When it comes to valuing our people, we have one key goal: to be an excellent employer. We offer a wide range of development opportunities in this most diverse and challenging of organisations. In addition to a competitive salary and membership of the excellent Local Government Pension Scheme, you can look forward to an all-round package of life-improving benefits and offers – from interest-free season ticket and bicycle loans, to discounts on health and wellbeing, arts and culture.

Closing date: 12 noon, 29 July 2024.
