Croydon Child & Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS) are looking for an experienced and enthusiastic administrator to join their friendly admin team. We are seeking a team player to support and work alongside our existing  team of administrators and receptionists.

We are looking for a candidate with a wide range of secretarial and administrative experience, Microsoft Office and audio-typing skills, have good communication skills, work autonomously, with the capability of prioritising your workload, and the ability to use your initiative and be flexible in your approach to your role.

The main duties will include typing letters and reports, with the requirement for some audio typing. Plus completing non-stock requisitions (eg ordering stationery). As a member of the admin team you would also be expected to become a Fire Warden and/or Health & Safety Champion or First Aider.

Being a flexible team player is essential as you will be required to cover for other administrators and receptionists when they are on leave to ensure that all aspects of the administration roles across the service are maintained during periods of staff shortages, (eg covering annual leave or sickness), this includes loading referrals onto the electronic patient records system.

Applicants are required to have excellent communication skills, a good telephone manner and attention to detail is essential, in particular excellent proof reading skills. Good literacy and IT skills are also required, especially having an understanding of Outlook and Word. As this is a very busy and demanding role you will be required to have the ability to multi task and prioritise your workload.

Experience in using our electronic patient records database (ePJS) is an advantage, but not essential, as training would be provided.

We employ around 4,800 people across South London and other sites in the UK. It is a diverse team of talented individuals, spanning a wide range of specialities and benefiting from many world-leading healthcare experts. We deliver more than 14,000 training experiences each year for our staff, providing an extensive range of learning opportunities. Staff can benefit from exceptional professional development opportunities and we will work with you to build your career in mental health. In addition, our working relationship with King's Health Partners allows those working at the Trust to get involved in academic research.

We are committed to helping to develop the people that come to work with us. We know that the Trust can only be as good as the people who work here and we’ll invest in you to maximise that potential. That’s why we really welcome and value people so highly
