What to expect:
Work is entirely office-based and at the auction venue.
The nature of the role is to support colleagues and projects rather than to take a lead on projects yourself, which may become frustrating.
The role can be stressful at times, since the work is always focused on the needs of the manager or team. Deadlines may be imposed suddenly, demanding flexibility and reprioritisation of workload.
Initial training usually consists of being taught company policies, procedures and systems. Once in post, it is not essential to study for further qualifications but they may be offered or you may wish to undertake some to increase your chances of progression.
