Admin & Finance Assistant: We Are Hiring!!

Admin & Finance Assistant, Byker

£9.19 per hour

We’re looking for a new team member for our Byker ‘head office’. This post will initially be part-time, 16hrs a week.

You’ll need to be organised and methodical. Preferably, you’ll have worked in an office of a small business or charity, and have experience of the sort of paperwork and documents that get generated. Ideally you’ll have also worked processing invoices, and you might even already be a qualified accountancy technician. If you’re not, don’t panic – we’re prepared to invest and train the right person!

You must be IT literate. You need to be comfortable enough with applications like Word, Excel, and Gmail to be able to help us develop ways of doing things efficiently and repeatably. The ideal candidate will also have experience of data entry for Sage or similar software, although this isn’t a requirement from day one.

You’ll be expected to have a firm commitment to Recyke y’Bike’s values: Equality and diversity; Community participation; sustainability and recycling; and Promotion of cycling. You must be a team player, able to get on with the other staff and volunteers. And if you’re already a “bike person”, it’d be a big help.

Flexibility is important for this role, both in terms of the scope of the job (e.g. you may be asked to help in our shops to cover holidays), and the hours you work, which may change with mutual agreement. Currently holidays are 25 days a year pro-rata (plus bank holidays), and you’ll be enrolled in a contributory pension scheme. We are a Living Wage Employer.

We’ll be interviewing for this post at in the first week of March.  Application forms are available from any of our shops, or on our web site. If you’re thinking of applying, we’d encourage you to pop into our Byker workshop for an informal chat with the general manager, Karl.

CLOSING DATE FOR APPLICATIONS: Wednesday 28th February, 5pm

You’ll need to be a great bike mechanic. Preferably, you’ll be qualified to Velotech Gold or equivalent, along with at least six months’ hands-on workshop experience. We service & recycle a wide range of customers’ bikes, so you’ll need problem solving skills and familiarity with lots of different bikes, rather than intimate knowledge of the latest technology.

It would be a distinct advantage if you also have front-of-shop experience. You need to happy dealing with customers – either in person, or when they phone with enquiries.
