We are looking to recruit an Executive Support (EA) to the General Manager Health, Safety and Security.

If you are someone that:

  • Is a self-starter and looking for opportunities to grow and develop
  • Is highly organised and enjoys problem solving

Then this is the role for you.

Working at the Ministry of Justice gives you the chance to make a real difference. Working for Justice means you’re working for the fairness and credibility of our Justice system, and the society it represents. The Health, Safety and Security business unit supports the Ministry’s managers and employees to put health, safety and security at the heart of everything they do. This is an exciting time to join the Ministry following the realignment of core corporate functions, with a new General Manager.

About the role

This is a key support role contributing directly to the effectiveness of the General Manager of Health, Safety and Security, responsible for providing high-level, secretarial and logistical services and requires excellent solution-focused administration and organisational skills. The role includes diary management, coordinating and booking meetings, preparing responses to correspondence, arranging travel, as well as assisting with administrative tasks with a confidential and sensitive nature. 

About you

You are a highly motivated professional with proven experience working in an Executive Support role. With your excellent time management and organisational skills, you prioritise and manage your workload and can respond to changing needs and priorities. You are able to keep one step ahead, anticipate and manage or escalate issues early. As a result, your General Manager will always be well briefed, prepared and organised.

A key success factor will be your ability to develop and maintain effective relationships and communicate on various levels with a wide range of people within and outside the Ministry.

We genuinely care about our people and offer a place you can be healthy and safe, with a strong focus on wellbeing and work/life balance. We celebrate and embrace diversity – a place you can be yourself! If you have a can-do attitude, strong written and verbal communication skills and excellent attention to detail then we would like to hear from you. In return you will be provided with a dynamic place to work and opportunities to further develop your skills and experience.
