The post will be for 9 months to cover maternity leave. As you will be covering both the Omagh and Derry services it is important that you either have excellent access to public transport or are a driver for this role.

As the first point of contact for all staff and customers both internally and externally, you will deal with general enquiries of housing and support work, facilitate operations and build good relations with clients. You will create and maintain reports, update records, producing financial and statistical documents using Mencap database applications.

You will also support staff and managers on decision making, committee minute taking, handling correspondence, organising event venues, staff meetings, conference calls, travel arrangements, maintaining an efficient electronic filing system as well as processing invoices and expenses.

Experience of working in a related environment, using MS Office, maintaining accuracy and attention to detail and working to deadlines are essential for the role.
