GLL is looking for an Administration Assistant to support our National Standards and Compliance Department for up to 30 hours per week.

In this key role, you'll need to be well-organised, friendly, helpful and approachable and be willing to help with everything from photocopying to filing and keeping claim files up-to-date and helping the team resolve any problems that arise.
You should have a strong background in administration and have great communication (written and verbal) skills and attention to detail. You'll also have a good understanding of IT packages such as Microsoft Office and it would be desirable to have experience and understanding of working with a quality management system.
