CURRENT CAREER OPPORTUNITIES

Office Manager - London

Office Manager

We are seeking an Office Manager for our London office (West End). The role is interesting and varied and involves significant responsibility for keeping all the administrative and operational functions of the office running smoothly, as well as elements of PA support to the directors, practice manager and business manager. Additionally, the role will involve supervising more junior team members.

You will need to demonstrate a strong track record of supporting both a team and senior management, ideally within a professional services organisation. You need to be able to juggle conflicting priorities, be a whizz at admin, great with people and have a high level of literacy and numeracy. The ability to communicate clearly (with excellent spoken and written English) is essential, as is the ability to think laterally and exercise sound judgment and common sense. We're looking for a problem-solver who is able to keep a tight control on running the office and associated functions, while also maintaining harmony within our friendly and hard-working team. A strong sense of client service as well as the drive to see things through is vital and, as you might expect, it is also important to be able to work well alone and as part of the team.

The role offers a competitive salary, based on experience and ability.

Please apply with details of your career to date and ensure you include a cover letter or e-mail setting out what you have to offer. Applications should either be e-mailed to jobs@asgvisa.com or posted to Ann Symonds at: ASG, 107-109 Great Portland Street, London W1W 6QG.

If you prefer, you are very welcome to call Ann Symonds for an initial chat on 020 7299 3330.

We look forward to hearing from you...

PRIVACY & DATA PROTECTION POLICY

ASG Business Central Limited (UK)

ASG Immigration Limited (UK)

ASG Global Services Limited (UK)

ASG Global Services Pty Ltd (Australia)

Introduction

ASG takes all aspects of privacy and data protection very seriously and is aware of its obligations under data protection regulation, including the requirements of the GDPR (from 25th May 2018).

The basis for collecting and using personal information

We collect and use personal information to conduct matters under engagements with our clients, to run, improve and develop our business and services and to maintain contact with clients and others who are interested in our work or with whom we have made connections.

With regard to the GDPR, we rely on the following legal grounds:

How we collect information

Most of the personal information we collect is provided to us by the individuals themselves, for example when making enquiries, requesting information or fee quotes from us, entering into client engagements with us, interacting with our team members at events, providing / exchanging business cards or attending events (including technical, networking and social events). We may also gather and update information from public / semi-public sources, such as entries on websites and social media platforms.

How we store information

Databases holding personal / contact information are held on our server and our "cloud" service, with data stored only in the EU and Australia, which is a country determined by the EU Commission to have an "adequate level of protection". Although we, in common with many businesses, are currently transitioning our systems to make greater use of external "cloud" services, we do not permit any data to be held outside of such countries.

How we use the information we collect and hold

Sharing the information we collect and hold

Data collected and held by any ASG company may be shared with other ASG companies (listed at the head of this document). While data may be stored in one or more of these companies, the central database is held and run by ASG Business Central Limited (as a data processor) on behalf of all ASG companies.

Data may be disclosed to third parties where required in order to provide our services (for example, courier services, external agents and service providers, outsourced services, and lawyers / other professionals working alongside our own teams) in the conduct of matters. It may also be disclosed where we are required to do so by law.

We have never and will never sell the data we hold and nor have we ever bought lists/data.

Rights under the GDPR

EU resident have certain rights under the GDPR, including the right to see the data we are holding, to request corrections of data held and to be removed from our database (subject to certain exceptions). Should you wish to exercise any of these rights, please inform us using the e-mail address ann.symonds@asgbiz.com Should you wish to be removed from mailing lists that supply marketing messages and/or invitations to briefings and social functions, please inform us using the e-mail address contact@asgbiz.com or click the "unsubscribe" link at the end of relevant e-mails you have received from us. Please note that this will only remove you from the mailing list(s) and not from our database. To be removed from our database completely, please contact us using the e-mail address contact@asgbiz.com and/or contact Ann Symonds (see below). Please note that there are certain circumstances in which removal will not be possible (for example where we are required to keep data relating to matters conducted under engagements with our clients) and that additional correspondence may be required before removal can be completed.

ASG website(s)

Our website is free to access without the need to provide any personal information.

We do not currently have, nor have we had in the past, a website that collects data or uses "cookies". At the time of updating this policy, we are building a new website. It is not anticipated that this will collect data or use cookies but, should that become the case, the details will be published on the site and this policy will be updated accordingly.

Questions & concerns

Please note that the new GDPR does not require us to have a formal Data Protection Officer and therefore we have not appointed one. However, responsibility for our policies and procedures rests with Ann Symonds. For any questions concerning this policy, or should you have any concerns or wish to make a request relating to the date we hold regarding you, please feel free to contact her on this e-mail address ann.symonds@asgbiz.com

Changes to this policy

This policy may be updated from time to time, either because we need to make changes ourselves or because we are required to as the GDPR and other new regulations are implemented. Any such changes will be posted on the ASG website and a copy can be supplied on request.
