Importantly the service is a busy environment, the service provides 24/7 support. The role is for office daytime hours only, this means communication from the team will not always be face to face. Therefore patience, a sense of humour and a positive outlook are required attributes. Although the role is demanding the rewards are great too, with the organisation offering a good package of support as well as the service delivering positive outcomes to children, young people and their families.  

The Administrative Officer is a dynamic role making up one of the components of support to the manager and the team as well as providing first line communication with families and professionals.
