  • Ensuring the office space is COVID compliant and in line with regulatory requirements
  • Maintain security by following procedures, monitoring sign in book etc.
  • Ensuring the supplies within the office are fully stocked (e.g. printing ink, coffee machine, food & drinks, etc) by coordinating with relevant suppliers

  • Helping maintain good order with appropriate filing
  • Photocopying, scanning and processing mail as required
