I have always found myself being “jack of all trades “in skills in a team and able to fill in for some of the experienced ones when they are away.

I can't think of a word to describe me.

I always like being the balance keeper in a team, if I witness we are lacking in something say, X. I will start taking the role for X (just having average skill in X).

Is it common to use the expression “jack of all trades“ in the context described above, if not what expression is more appropriate?
