Short description

A genuine opportunity for growth has become available within the administrative team for Melmar Stone. Grow with this company and increase your skills throughout the duration of the administrative apprenticeship.

Full description

Melmar Stone is one of the UK's leading trade suppliers of cast stone garden ornaments, supplying many garden centres throughout the UK. Our name is synonymous with quality and originality.

Fusing modern quality and manufacturing systems with traditional artisan techniques we start our process by commissioning original designs from specialist sculptors - working in traditional stone and, more recently, in high quality workable polymer clays. From this original we carefully develop a mould in modern polyurethane materials which faithfully replicates the original design of the artist. Into this mould we then hand cast a variety of specialist stone types, depending on the size of the item and surface finish required, to produce the raw moulding. According to customer taste the ornament can then be finished in a series of advanced coatings to protect it from the elements.

Our intention is 100% customer satisfaction. In the first instance this means the stockist of our product, so we aim to be commercially competitive, and provide comprehensive marketing support.

As our new administrative apprentice, you will have an eye for detail and a natural aptitude with regard to the use of technology as most of our daily duties are directly associated to the use of various software packages.

It is important that you are able to work towards deadlines as, at times the business can be reliant on everyone pulling together to ensure projects are completed on time.

Your duties will expand as you settle into the company and learn more about the company, its products, its services and its client base.

To begin with, your duties will include:

  • Order Administration. Most of our orders are received via email, these orders need to be processed accurately onto our internal systems to produce works orders for manufacturing and or packing.
  • Organising carriers and delivery documentation to ensure customer orders are dispatched and received in a timely manner and in line with the company promise.

In time, and when your confidence and knowledge allows you will be encouraged to take on additional responsibilities which may include:

  • Basic accountancy tasks such as raising invoices using Sage software
  • Customer service enquiries via online contact, email or telephone

Applicants will be required to attend an Assessment Centre with Vision Apprentices as part of the screening process.

The employer reserves the right to close this vacancy early should a suitable candidate be identified prior to the published closing date
