Islands’ Partnership Admin Assistant Opportunity

The Islands’ Partnership, is seeking an Administrative Assistant to assist and provide robust administrative support in developing a new initiative entitled ‘Scilly Events’. The aim of ‘Scilly Events’ is to develop a rolling programme of events and activities designed to stimulate and grow event led tourism across the Isles of Scilly.

The Administrative Assistant will play a key role in providing both administrative support to the Scilly Events Manger as well as the logistical and organisation skills required to develop a vibrant island wide events programme.

The aim of the initiative is to develop 5 large scale events per annum as well as a range of small scale events designed to add value to the visitor experience when on island.

The successful candidate will be responsible for the facilitation of day-to-day tasks including record keeping, the ordering of goods and services, dealing with enquiries, taking bookings, working with a range of social media tools, the processing of financial information, the organisation of travel and the facilitation of a range of meetings.

The role would suit a person who has excellent organisational and logistical skills and is accomplished in being able to prioritise work in what will be a busy and demanding environment. A good knowledge of Microsoft Applications (Word, Excel & Access) and excellent communication skills (both verbal, written and digital) will be essential. The ability to work as part of a close knit team is intrinsic to this role.

Ideally the successful candidate should be able to demonstrate knowledge of recent developments within the field of tourism in Scilly and a strong understanding of the visitor environment across all five islands.
