Work with BTP

Part-Time Business Support Administrator Role

BTP is expanding!

To allow our current Administrator to take up a new role within BTP we are recruiting a new Business Support Administrator!

For the right candidate this is a small but exciting opportunity to join a small business at a period of development.

The role is for 10 hours per week on a self-employed basis. The key aspects of the role are to administer the bookings side of the business, customer care tasks, and to be responsible for basic book-keeping using MS Excel spreadsheets. The role is also required to cover for other team members in their absence, so a degree of flexibility in approach, attitude, and hopefully time is also needed. There may be opportunities to undertake other work within the business in the future.

The ideal candidate will be a confident and reliable Administrator with extensive administrative experience, be comfortable with figures and using Excel spreadsheets, and be happy to muck in!

The role is ideally suited to a counsellor or psychotherapist (perhaps newly qualified) who is looking to work within a dynamic, therapy based business. Those longer in the tooth are also welcome to apply!

The FTE annual salary is £23,400. The remuneration package includes ‘benefits in kind’ in the form of free therapy CPD within the organisation (worth £100 each day) and reduced cost consulting room hire within the Palmeira Practice, and access to the Practice client referral system. This package would be well suited to someone wishing to get their clinical private practice off the ground or to expand their current practice, and to develop their therapy skills base with attendance at high quality CPD events.

The successful candidate will need to be a car driver, as BTP is currently in the process of moving to the outskirts of Brighton (10 minute drive from Brighton Marina) where there are few buses.

The deadline for applications is Monday 15th October.

Full details of the post, remuneration, and application details can be downloaded below. We will not be sending out any information by email. All information about this post is available here on the website!
