Northamptonshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust is looking for an experienced and self-motivated senior administrator to provide essential secretarial and administrative support to the Head of Psychology and the Consultant Medical Psychotherapist.

We are also committed to supporting our staff and providing them with the chance to develop in their roles and to feel that they are included in the delivery of high quality care and services. This role provides essential support to these two lead professionals and as such would be very much part of the team in delivering high quality psychological interventions in NHFT.

We are looking for a candidate who is well-organised, pro-active, and able to deal with a wide range of people when liaising to setup a variety of meetings and appointments. The ability to manage electronic systems is essential, and it would be an advantage to have had experience of helping to manage a busy diary and time commitments on behalf of others.
