Business Administration Apprenticeship
Application deadline: August 31st 2018
A Performing Arts Trust in Northampton is looking for a new Business Administration Apprentice to join their team.
We are looking for a Business Administration Apprentice to join Northamptonshire Music and Performing Arts Trust’s busy admin office. This is a varied, sometimes challenging, and fulfilling role that involves working closely with the Admin Team to deliver efficient back office support to over 100 music teachers.
Core activities will include:
- A wide range of office support roles, reception duties to include both face- to-face and telephone customer service.
- Supporting managers in administration work including preparing for staff INSET training.
- Maintain project records as required.
- General office tasks as required – such as shredding confidential documents and photocopying.
- Provide a welcoming environment for visitors – for example students taking exams, and teachers attending courses.
- Ensure that documentation is appropriately stored within the agreed file plan and operate a central filing system for all projects.
- You will gain valuable work experience, develop new skills and learn how one of the UK’s largest music and performing arts charities is run.
- You will be able to volunteer to be involved with concerts and you may have the opportunity to be involved with projects in schools.
- The role is very much what you make it – and the more you would like to be involved, and use initiative and perception, the more you will be able to get out of your apprenticeship.
- As part of a small team you will be required to carry out tasks as and when required, this includes general office duties.
- You will be expected to pitch in and do a whole range of jobs that a small organisation needs doing in addition to your main duties. This may include tasks such as tea/coffee runs; helping to move chairs, music stands, instruments and equipment; checking lists of information; shredding and photocopying.
This may include early starts and long days – candidates need to be prepared to take part in these.
This post will attract an annual salary of £12,000 (20 years and under) - £13,500 (21 years and over).
Apprentices are paid for their normal working hours and training that’s part of their apprenticeship (usually one day per week).
