Role Description

Can you help us deliver an excellent service to our members? We are looking for an Administration Manager to support the work of CPT Scotland’s Director and Public Affairs Manager as we build and promote the case for a supportive policy framework for the bus and coach sector in Scotland.

The role of the CPT Scotland Administration Manager is to ensure the proper functioning of CPT Scotland. In short, you will facilitate member meetings, ensure a record of events and meetings are kept, formulate newsletters, contribute to our social media output, and potentially grow your experience of political monitoring, public affairs work, and member engagement due to the hands-on nature of working in a small team.

The CPT Scotland Administration Manager will liaise with the CPT Scotland Director and Public Affairs Manager, the coach and bus operators that make up our membership and our external stakeholders to help support our work and grow the profile of the organisation in Scotland.

You will also play a key role in referring CPT Scotland members to the appropriate point of contact when they make contact via various channels including telephone, email, and social media. Enquiries will include information about policy, operational issues, CPT services, events and meetings or enquiries about joining the organisation.

The role allows for a hybrid working pattern. Our office is based in central Edinburgh. Travel to attend meetings across Scotland may be required.

About You

You will be exceptionally well organised and enjoy working as part of a small team.  Your communication skills, both verbal and written, will be well developed and you should be confident in your ability to be proactive and use your initiative.

Knowledge of the transport sector isn’t an essential requirement, and you will not be expected to give operational support to our members. However, you should be able to demonstrate an ability to develop a good grasp of the issues facing the bus and coach sectors in Scotland and the general business environment in which our members operate.

Ideally, you will have some experience of events organisation and management. CPT Scotland holds a number of member meetings and an annual conference for around 150 delegates. An understanding of how to handle administration of events of this size would be very useful.

A fuller list of key tasks and person specifications is attached below as Annex A. Interested applicants should submit their CV and a covering letter outlining what has attracted them to this position and what they could bring to it.

How to Apply

All applications should include a recent CV and a covering letter and should be sent to paul.white@cpt-uk.org

Applications close on the 20th January, interviews for the position will be held shortly after
