The Mental Health Directorate is looking for an efficient, experienced, motivated and highly competent Personal Assistant to provide full secretarial and administrative support to the National Consultant  Allied Health Professional (AHP) Lead for Dementia.

This is an exciting new role that is hosted by Cardiff & Vale UHB but will support the AHP lead for Dementia in her work nationally. It will include the opportunity to provide administrative support to national meetings and work with a range of stakeholders, including but not limited to: Welsh Government, Improvement Cymru, Health Education Improvement Wales, Social Care Wales, the Alzheimer's Society, Lleisiau Dementia and AHPs working in dementia care across Wales.

The postholder will be required to successfully manage and co-ordinate diaries; take responsibility for meeting management from scheduling to minute taking and provide a flexible administrative function. Working with a national lead for dementia, you will have excellent communication and  interpersonal skills, the ability to multi-task and work both on your own initiative and within a team. You will need to enjoy working as part of a multiagency team in a fast paced, but exciting environment, and be adaptable to change as well as being able to manage your own workload. Previous experience of working in the NHS would be an advantage but is not essential. Audio, word processing skills and experience of producing spreadsheets and graphs are essential, as is familiarity with Microsoft packages, particularly Outlook, Word, Excel and Teams.  You will also be required to assist with managing social media platforms, websites and communications campaigns. Candidates should have a good level of education and excellent secretarial skills.

If you are enthusiastic, reliable and have a flexible approach to work, then we would like to hear from you.

The ability to speak Welsh is desirable for this post; Welsh and/or English speakers are equally welcome to apply.
