Job Description


Are you looking to get a head start with your career?

An apprenticeship can be a wonderful place to start and can set you off on the road to success. You can work and earn while you learn. Doing an apprenticeship can be very beneficial for people that find that classrooms or traditional learning environments are just not for them. This is an opportunity to learn how to do something quite simply by doing it!

One of the most useful things about an apprenticeship is the fact it gives you real experience in a real-world job.

We are looking to offer an amazing Level 3 Business Administration Apprenticeship opportunity to 3 individuals who will join us in an actual working environment and learn the ins and outs of the day to day workings within our business.

Working alongside colleagues in our Wakefield Office, you will learn skills and build your knowledge across 4 of our high-profile blue light contracts.

This experience and knowledge will be invaluable are you progress in your career.

Wondering what the role of Business Administrator performs in a business?

Business administrators have a highly transferable set of knowledge, skills and behaviours that can be applied in all sectors. The role may involve working independently or as part of a team and will involve developing, implementing, maintaining and improving administrative services. Business administrators develop key skills and behaviours to support their own progression towards management responsibilities.

The responsibilities of the role are to support and engage with different parts of the organisation and interact with internal or external customers. With a focus on adding value, the role of business administrator contributes to the efficiency of an organisation, through support of functional areas, working across teams and resolving issues as requested.

The business administrator is expected to deliver their responsibilities efficiently and with integrity – showing a positive attitude. The role involves demonstrating strong communication skills (both written and verbal) and adopting a proactive approach to developing skills. The business administrator is also expected to show initiative, managing priorities and own time, problem-solving skills, decision-making and the potential for people management responsibilities through mentoring or coaching others.

Ideally you will already have Level 2 Maths and English but if not, don’t worry, you can study alongside the apprenticeship and gain these functional skills as well.

Does this sound like you? Then what are you waiting for.
