About the role
You will provide business administration support in a variety of ways:

  • You will be entering data into relevant manual and computerised information systems, including the Oxfordshire County Council Liquidlogic Childrens Services (LCS) database, within relevant statutory and local protocols. This includes scanning and uploading documents.
