For: Administrators

Meyer Scott Ref: VR/07935

Salary: £9.50 - £11.00 per hour

We are looking for experienced administrators to fulfil a combination of roles we believe will be in demand when things settle down. After 23 years in business Meyer-Scott has a large portfolio of local businesses, some of which have indicated that they will require temporary office workers to see them back on their feet before they are likely to hire on a permanent basis.

With that in mind we've decided to put a 'shout out' for candidates who have a sound office experience and are out of work right now. We are very much looking for candidates with a steady work history, who are happy with full time temporary work and have their own transport.

Our roles are invariably based around Huntingdon, St Ives, Bar Hill, Swavesey, and surrounding villages. We deal with many businesses in these locations as well as local councils based in Cambourne, Huntingdon, St Ives and Cambridge.
