** Applications now closed **

Land & Wave is looking for a super organised person to help keep our Swanage office ship-shape and our customers happy.

We need a person that’s committed and hard working but we know that flexibility is important. How many hours would you like to work? Can you work some weekends? Would you like to work more or less hours for a few months a year? 

As an example we’d love someone that can work 30 – 40 hours over 5 days a week, working some weekends and maybe a few less hours over the Winter (but we’re flexible – you tell us what you’d like to do).

This is a permanent position. We’re based in Swanage, Dorset; on the Jurassic Coast.

Staff. Team 2

We’d love to employ someone that’s part of our community, if you could (should you choose) walk to work it would be brilliant. 

To be an Office Administrator you’ll need a great work ethic, a passion for excellent customer service and really enjoy working systematically. We use bespoke booking and diary systems, so being adaptable to new software systems is essential.

What’s really important? We need someone that’s positive and gregarious, someone that can spot a problem and come up with a solution, a person that can meet a challenge head on with a smile on their face. Kindness, compassion, resilience and tenacity.
