About us

North Hertfordshire is a large rural district with approximately 125,000 residents with four historic towns, Hitchin, Baldock, Royston and Letchworth Garden City. The Council has a clear vision: We put people first and deliver sustainable services, to enable a brighter future together

Your role

Herts Careline has experienced huge growth over the past few years as demand for assistive technology to support people’s independence in their own home has increased. It’s because of this exciting growth that we’re often looking to expand our team of Technical Administrators on a temporary contract.

This role is to focus on the administration of upgrading our service users with analogue alarm systems to digital alarms and supporting the growing technical team at Herts Careline. You will have to arrange appointments with vulnerable service users, log jobs on our CRM system and schedule work for technicians to complete.

If you are a compassionate individual looking to make a difference to vulnerable people then this may be the opportunity you are looking for.

Please note, the successful applicant for the above post will be background checked with the Disclosure and Barring Service.

Your rewards

  • Local Government Pension Scheme (18% employer contribution)
  • Generous annual leave, including Christmas close down period
  • Occupational sick pay
  • Free car parking
  • Discounts, including 50% off gym membership
  • Flexible working options including flexi scheme and home-working

We are dedicated to promoting a healthy work/life balance and ensuring all members of our team feel that they are making a difference to the local community and are valued by our organisation.
