Job Description
*Fixed Term Contract: 12 months*
Job purpose

This role covers two critical service areas for the Bank.  Both provide excellent administrative support to the Front Office, enabling them to offer a first class service to clients.  One is responsible for onboarding new clients, managing switching requests and maintaining client static data throughout the banking relationship; the other provides centralised support to all areas of the Bank in terms of scanning, distribution and archiving of client documentation.  

Both service areas require a high degree of service excellence and a keen attention to detail. Some information processed may be sensitive and discretion is expected at all times.  You will need to be able to work quickly and efficiently, with minimal supervision and also become a ‘subject matter expert’ on the Document Management system.
