Administrative Services for Mental Health and Learning Disabilities are seeking an experienced individual to work as a Personal Assistant within the Mental Health & Learning Disabilities Directorate (MH & LD).

The role is primarily focused on providing robust administrative support within the Directorate Management Team, including supporting the development of work programmes and formal minute taking and transcribing.

This is a very demanding yet exciting role and the successful candidate will require a high level of adaptability and a flexible approach to work. They will also assist and support other colleagues if required.

The successful post holder will need to be able to travel to all sites within the Health Board if required.

Complex diary management is a part of the role which will include being able to analyse requirements and prioritise at very short notice due to constantly changing circumstances.

We require someone who is enthusiastic and motivated and able to work to a very high standard of accuracy. An exceptional eye for detail and excellent organisational skills are also essential for this role and the successful candidate will be expected to demonstrate initiative in planning their own workload in a way that supports the work of the Senior Management Team.

Excellent communication skills are also essential to enable you to respond professionally; you will be required to develop effective relationships with a wide range of staff and key stakeholders.

An essential element of the role is comprehensive minute taking, as is the preparation of draft agendas and action plans. We are therefore looking for candidates who have experience in these areas. An excellent working knowledge of Microsoft Office applications is essential as is a formal keyboarding qualification.

The successful candidate will initially be based in Llanelli for a three month period with a view to a change of base in line with Service requirements.

The ability to speak Welsh is desirable for this post; English and/or Welsh speakers are equally welcome to apply.
