Job Description

Working for the Conbit Branch in Eindhoven you will be part of the office support team. Together with your team you will take care of a variety of business and administrative services.

You will be proactive, flexible and with a can-do attitude. You will be a highly efficient individual, with a strong desire to correctly implement business support methods and practices, and to improve them where possible, whilst maintaining compliance and consistency with ALE’s global brand.

Your ability to manage many different tasks at the same time, plus your ability to prioritise will be regularly challenged.

You will take pride in your work whether it involves answering phone calls, reception work or administrative tasks.

Your superb communication skills will enable you to enhance working life for those around you and always remain focussed on the overall goal of helping the business to be the best it can be.

Very much a ‘people person’, your emotional intelligence enables you to remain diplomatic but firm, see the problem from other points of view, and help to solve problems logically and fairly.

A high level of technological savvy and fluency with business software and systems means that you can work efficiently and get the most out of the tools provided for your role.
