Job Description

You will be giving support to the Projects Department. This department is the operational heart of the organization from which projects will be managed all over the world.

Proactive and flexible 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 prioritize will be regularly challenged.

You will take pride in your work whether it involves answering phone calls, troubleshooting problematic areas of office life, or solving mobilization issues for our project crew.

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