We have an exciting opportunity within our Business Support Team for our Childrens Continuing Care Service in Portsmouth. We are looking for a highly motivated and organised administrator with good attention to detail to input our nurse’s and health care support worker’s shifts onto our internal roster system.

Solent’s Childrens Continuing Care Team support 4 families in the Portsmouth area whose children require substantial home support. We are looking for people that work to the organisational Values of Honesty, Everyone Counts, Accountability, Respect and Teamwork (HEART), shown in your behaviour that you value people and the care you give to them.

This role is seen as a key position and we are looking for someone with real passion for the role to provide key support in matters across the service. As such, you will need to have excellent administrative, IT and communication skills, with the ability to prioritise and manage your own workload.

Previous experience supporting a business function is important, as is the ability to work independently as well as part of a larger team. You will be expected to maintain a high level of accuracy and be able to demonstrate good time management and prioritisation skills.

There are 2 main responsibilities within this role, adding people’s shifts to an online program to ensure they are paid accurately, and creating monthly reports for commissioners to reflect that shift data. You will update our roster program with shifts that out Continuing Care Team of staff have completed so accuracy is paramount as people’s pay and wages depend on this job being done accurately. The roster needs to be finalised on the 2nd working day of the month and it will be your responsibility to ensure that all shifts are uploaded and accurate by that time so there is an expectation that you are able to work under pressure and to tight deadlines. Good Excel knowledge is essential and there will be a test as part of the recruitment process. The successful candidate will also need to send monthly commissioner reports reflecting the hours of support that we have given to each child that month, so attention to detail is key.

Our priority is finding the right type of person who shares our values and puts patients first, working together as a team and always improving our provision; someone with the ability and attitude to grow and develop in the service as a valued member of our team.
