As well as helping support the Digital, Creative and Communications teams, you will also lead the administration and diary needs of the associate directors of communications and digital and creative media. Where capacity allows you will also support other members of the team in tasks that include the recruitment and onboarding of new staff members, planning meetings, events and away days, taking minutes and actions.
