Administrative Officer – we are hiring now

We are currently seeking an Administrative Officer (Indigenous Australian preferred) with experience in invoicing, planning order fulfilment, customer liaison and inventory management. Be part of a small team moving indigenous wild food products to the world.

The Administrative Officer position is key to our operations. The ideal candidate will be a mature individual able to work independently as well as supervising the running of day to day orders and invoicing, stock maintenance, quality procedures and customer service. An out-going, self-confident personality is needed with capability in sensitively managing other team members.

Computing skills are essential with Microsoft Office (email, Excel and Word) a minimum. Use of on-line portals for booking of freight and processing credit cards is routine. Maintenance of local and cloud based records and customer histories and files are part of the quality control and HACCP requirements of our industry as is the maintenance and development of our quality control procedures.

Organisation and time planning and pushing others to work in an organized and tidy manner is an essential requirement. Cross-checking of completed orders prior to dispatch to minimize errors is routine. If you tend to be overly relaxed and messy, this is not the position for you.

The candidate will answer to the Managing Director although we do run a flat management system. Duties will even extend to occasional help in the warehouse, packing orders if time is short or orders are particularly involved. This is also part of our training/induction program to gain an understanding of our products.

Work hours are flexible with our factory operating from 8am to 5pm M-F but the role is a full time or near full time position. We are located a 15 minute walk from Kingsgrove railway station and buses go past our premises but there is space for off-street parking for the candidate's own vehicle next to or near our premises.
