Business Development Administration Assistant
Location: Liverpool City Centre (likely to be predominantly office based with option of working from home for 1 or 2 days per week). Possibility of travel within the UK and overseas.
Likely to be full-time but part-time applicants will be considered.

Start Date: late June/early July.
Salary: £22,000 - £25,000 dependent upon experience.

Our Role:
This position would suit an enthusiastic and energetic administrative assistant with experience in a support role. The role requires a proactive and capable individual to manage administrative duties and thrive within an ambitious SME. The successful candidate requires an ability to multi-task, communicate effectively and conduct new market research.

About Us:
STEM Women runs careers events that introduce university students to graduate employers. We have become the market leader within this niche, growing sector.

Since the pandemic our events have moved from physical venues to an innovative online platform. The move online has provided the business with new market opportunities. We have held events in new regions (Australia, Netherlands) and are launching a new digital offering. As such we are in the process of growing our sales team, and require additional support.

We have a non-hierarchical structure at STEM Women and require staff who are flexible and adaptable to reflect the fast-paced and dynamic nature of the events industry! We are also a very supportive and friendly team. At present we have 7 staff and anticipate 2 new hires over the next quarter.

Key Responsibilities:
The primary purpose of this role will be to provide overall administrative support to two members of the sales team, a recruiter and a director. The role will also incorporate broad, company-wide tasks.

Sales Team Support (40%):

  • Conduct internet research to identify new business targets. This will involve supporting existing regular events and identifying companies in new markets/locations.
  • Identify suitable decision makers via LinkedIn and update records on Salesforce CRM.
  • Prepare sales team weekly and monthly reports.
  • Set up internal meetings, minute sales meetings and distribute actions.
  • Act as a key point of contact for all the staff to facilitate access to the current client marketing and business information.

Recruiter Support (20%):

  • Within the business we have an established recruitment business with two consultants. The role will also offer support to the consultants.
  • Conduct internet research to identify new business targets and identify suitable decision makers via LinkedIn.
  • There will also be an occasional need to assist with recruitment administrative tasks such as updating our candidate databse and conducting online CV searches when required.

Director Support (20%):

  • Assist the director with finance related tasks. This will involve completing new supplier forms, raising invoices and chasing debtors.
  • There will be ad-hoc research tasks that the director will require support with from time to time.

Company Support and Ad-hoc tasks (20%)

  • The chosen candidate will be the first point of contact for all sales related enquiries, and must present the company effectively whilst also deciding which calls to put through to the team.
  • The role will also involve managing relationships with office suppliers, including our PC/phone support and purchasing general office goods (coffee, milk, printer cartridges etc).
  • Due to the fast-moving nature of our business we may require the chosen candidate to work on various ad-hoc tasks from time to time.


  • Excellent communication skills.
  • Commercial acumen, resilience and initiative.
  • Ability to implement and improve processes.
  • Flexibility, willingness and ability to "go the extra mile" to help deliver results and meet deadlines.
  • Candidates must live within commuting distance of Liverpool city centre and be eligible to work.
  • Commercial experience within a support role and a degree level education will be advantageous.
