Premises Assistant

£8.85 - £10.17 per hour, depending on experience. 

Variable hours including evenings, weekends and early starts        

Looking for an interesting and rewarding part time job in your local community?

Are you a good communicator who is passionate about great service?

Can you be available to work flexible hours to meet our customer needs?

If your answer is yes then we’d love to hear from you.

We’re looking for a true “people person” to be the friendly, professional face of the Council and provide our customers with excellent service at our premises in Romsey.  Based at Crosfield Hall you’ll work as part of a team on a variety of events, including Council meetings, private functions, lectures and parties. These take place during days, evenings and weekends and your role will be to prepare the venue and organise any equipment and  refreshments required.  This includes a variety of caretaking duties such as arranging rooms, preparing drinks, setting up audio and visual equipment, light cleaning, tidying the premises and liaising with cleaners, caterers and building contractors.  There is also a requirement to open the Council Offices for staff in Romsey. You’ll be working on a monthly rota basis for an average of around 84 hours per month, depending on events booked.

You’ll need to be a good communicator who is committed to high standards, and you must be able to move and rearrange furniture. At times you will be working alone so you’ll need to be able to manage the booking and use your own initiative.  A full driving licence and use of a vehicle is also essential as you’ll be required to work at other buildings in the Council area if needed. IT skills are an advantage but are not essential as full training will be provided. 

This job is really worthwhile and varied for the right person and, in addition to a competitive salary, you’ll be provided with corporate uniform and be eligible for usual Council benefits including holiday pay, discounted sports facilities, free parking for  work and a generous mileage allowance when using your own vehicle for business.
