Shrouded in secrecy and mystery, the area is dominated by the Defence Science and Technology Laboratory which is commonly shortened to Dstl. At this site research is made into nuclear, chemical, biological and nuclear military defence practices that can be used by the government. Porton Down is the base for the Health Protection Agency’s Centre for Emergency Preparedness and Response, where the latest medical treatments and solutions undergo rigorous scientific testing.
To ensure the smooth running of such a large and incredibly important organisation, Porton Down requires highly skilled administrative staff. As an engineering or compliance administrator you’ll have to invoice any suppliers and subcontractors for their work. Working in a government laboratory your administrative duties will have you inputting and extracting data reports from the system and updating senior managers. Obviously strong organisational skills and a proactive approach are essential as there is always deliveries to manage, timesheets and risk assessments to be completed and minutes to be noted down. For any administrative role, previous experience is beneficial but proficiency in all Microsoft office tools is expected at any level.
