About this job
A number of UNISON’s Bedfordshire Branches, working together, are looking for two enthusiastic and resourceful administrators to help support UNISON members and local branches by taking part in this exciting opportunity in the new Bedfordshire Resource Centre. This involves working mainly afternoons but with some flexibility to cover annual leave and sickness.
The successful candidates for these posts will be experienced team players, have good communication and time management skills, including the ability to organise their own workload and effectively manage priorities.
