Are you someone who thrives in a role where attention to detail is key and enjoys interacting with people? If you have a knack for organisation and a desire to work within the maritime industry, then we have an exciting opportunity for you! We're currently seeking a Business Administration Officer for a temporary, full-time, assignment in Southampton.

About the Role:

As a Business Administration Officer within the Seafarer Services branch, you'll play a vital role in the certification of seafarers, essentially providing them with the necessary licenses to work at sea and on board vessels.

Key Responsibilities:

  • Reviewing documents provided by seafarers and assessing their eligibility for certification.
  • Assisting seafarers with examination arrangements and providing support throughout the process.
  • Issuing certificates and endorsements to eligible seafarers and notifying those who do not meet criteria.
  • Handling telephone and email inquiries related to certification and providing outstanding customer service.
  • Supporting other administrative tasks and projects within the branch.

About You:

  • Highly motivated, positive, and enthusiastic individual with a flexible attitude and a willingness to learn.
  • Experience in accurately handling data with a high level of attention to detail.
  • Excellent IT skills, particularly in Microsoft Outlook and Excel.
  • Strong communication skills both verbally and in writing.
  • Organisational and time management skills with the ability to meet deadlines and prioritise tasks effectively.

Pay and Hours:

  • Pay rate: £12.36 per hour
  • Monday to Friday, 37 hours per week
  • Temporary assignment until 21/08/2024, with the possibility of extension based on business needs.
  • Shift pattern: 7.4 hours per day with a start time between 8am-9am.
