Administration Officer - Mount Isa

Save The Children

We’re looking for a friendly, organised and dynamic Administration Officer to carry out admin and reception duties at our office in Mount Isa. Your attention to detail, computer literacy, and great communication skills will ensure that our teams can continue working effectively to make the world a better place for children. 

Save the Children is no ordinary not-for-profit. 

We’re ambitious, creative and outspoken. We stand up for children’s rights. We want all children to be educated, healthy and live a life free from violence. We’ve been working with families and communities in Queensland as a trusted support for children for nearly 70 years. More information on our work in Queensland is available here.

Where you come in:

In this full time, permanent role based in Mount Isa, you’ll act as the first point of contact for internal and external stakeholders, provide administrative support for the teams, and will support the efficient and effective running of the office in a proactive and professional manner. You’ll work closely with Queensland’s Office Coordinators and the Save the Children team.

You will make an impact by:

  • Providing administrative, secretarial and general office support to the Mount Isa team
  • Coordinating monthly resource and stationery and food orders including freight and postage coordination
  • Organising contractors and quotes as required to meet office needs
  • Providing friendly assistance to staff, community members and stakeholders, ensuring they are welcomed and supported
  • Ensuring the reception area is clean and tidy at all times

Does this sound like you?

You’re an adaptable all-rounder, ideally with a background in reception or admin support and you’re willing and able to learn new systems. Your organisational skills alongside your attention to detail will support the efficient and effective running of the office. You’re personable and friendly, and you’ll easily build strong positive relationships with stakeholders at the Centre and the community.

This role requires:

  • Excellent customer service skills
  • Highly developed verbal and written communication skills
  • Strong time management and organisational skills
  • High levels of attention to detail and quality
  • Typing and computer literacy skills
  • Ideally, experience in a reception or administrative role

Having a certification in business or administration would be great, but if you don’t, we can assist you to access appropriate training.

Working at Save the Children is more than just a job.

It’s the feeling of knowing that your work is contributing to making the world a better place for children and working with others who feel the same. In addition to a connection to social causes, you will have access to:

  • Award rate salary plus salary packaging
  • Festive leave in addition to regular leave benefits
  • Individual learning plans to assist in your career development
  • Internal employment and development opportunities
  • Friendly and flexible work environment
