As a leader in services to the construction industry, Workstream offers an exciting, fast-moving working environment with unmatched opportunities for career development. Workstream’s rapid growth means we are always on the lookout for additional high quality people to come and join our team.

An administrator's main duties include:

  • Accurate entry and maintenance of candidate/client records on our database, based on information obtained directly via phone, fax or email; from uploads to the Workstream website; and/or from colleagues
  • Scanning CVs and other printed material using Optical Character Recognition and/or graphics technology for addition to the Voyager database

  • Providing administrative support to other Workstream divisions and associate companies as required
  • Chasing timesheets for candidates
  • Handling any pay queries/problems
  • Liasing with candidates and visiting them on site to carry out ID checks

Interested applicants must provide a close match to the following attributes:

  • An outgoing, enthusiastic personality with an excellent telephone manner
  • The ability to deal calmly, confidently and professionally with pressure, whether from clients, candidates or colleagues
  • A self-motivated, organised and highly customer-focused attitude to work
  • The ability to work on own initiative
  • The ability to work happily with personal computers and to cope with the demands of accurate data entry and maintenance, and standard office applications such as email and word processing
  • Willingness to learn and/or initiate new business processes that enhance the company’s ability to deliver solutions to its clients. (This might be through formal training programmes and/or self-education)

Administrators receive “on-the-job” training on Workstream’s Voyager recruitment system and all other aspects of the company’s systems and business processors from their line manager.

Salary for the Administrator is approximately £15-19k per annum, subject to skills and experience.
