Deadline for Applications: 29th March

New Chapters Fostercare is a local, well established fostering agency based in Shifnal. We provide foster care placements for children and young people from the West Midlands area.

We are now looking to recruit an administration assistant to work alongside, and under the direction of, our Office Manager. Initially this post will be 3 days per week but potentially could become full time, dependent on the growth of the agency.

Suitable candidates will require a broad range of administrative skills and have good verbal and written communication skills.

The nature of our work requires high levels of confidentiality and the need to understand and adopt strong safeguarding practices. You will assist in the provision of comprehensive administrative support service including the completion of statutory checks.

We are seeking a motivated and enthusiastic team player. You will need good working knowledge of Microsoft Office applications, as well as an excellent telephone manner and a systematic approach to working, with an ability to multi task and work independently. Accuracy and communication skills are essential.

Experience of the fostering sector is desirable but not essential as comprehensive training will be given. The post is subject to a 6 month probationary period.

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and we expect all employees to share this commitment and also undertake appropriate checks. This post will be subject to a DBS disclosure.

For more information and application form please contact our Office Manager Emma Bello by emailing emmabello@newchaptersfostercare.co.uk or phoning 01952 463251.
