About the role

This is an exciting opportunity to join the Community Kettering Team as a Business Support Officer.  You will be required to carry out specific administration tasks in order to support the professionals in a busy team. 

As the sole BSO within the team, your role is critical.  However, we have a network of BSO’s within other teams who all support each other. 

We have good training opportunities and you will be working within a supportive and friendly team.
