We have a truly unique opportunity for an experienced Office Coordinator / Office Manager to advance their career within an organisation that is undergoing rapid business growth. Play a pivotal role in establishing the CMA's brand new Edinburgh office.

The Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) is the UK's world-leading body established to make sure competition works in people's favour and businesses treat their customers fairly. Whether it is taking enforcement action against drug firms accused of over-charging the NHS, investigating hotel booking sites to check their customers are getting the best deal for them or launching a major study into the care homes industry, what we do makes a difference to people's lives.

As Office Manager, you will act as the professional face and central point of contact for CMA Scotland, with accountability for establishing and ensuring the smooth day-to-day running of the office. This will include having key input into the development and implementation of office-based policies, procedures and processes, as well as planning and maintaining the office layout and common areas to the highest standard, so that all employees and visitors have access to a comfortable and safe working environment.

This role is the key primary point of contact for all matters and enquiries from both internal and external stakeholders, and will work collaboratively with corporate service functions and/or building management and facilities providers to ensure timely resolution or escalation of any issues related to the running of the office. The role will also be responsible for facilitating local employee onboarding and induction activities, and will work closely with colleagues to support high profile CMA events and stakeholder activities in Scotland.

Good communication skills and confidence in liaising with a wide range of internal and external stakeholders is essential, coupled with experience of supporting key stakeholder events. Sound working knowledge of the Microsoft Office suite and familiarity of government information and general office compliance requirements will round off your profile.
