35 hours per week full time but willing to consider flexibility
About the role:
Our Client has created a new Advocacy and Engagement team and they are now looking for a brilliant Team Coordinator who can get stuck in and help make sure their operation runs as effectively and efficiently as possible, so they can have the biggest impact.
This is a brand new role and one that will suit someone who loves organising others and being at the heart of a busy team. No single day will be the same! From preparing briefs for stakeholder meetings to supporting the diary needs of the Deputy Director; from liaising with suppliers to assisting in launches and conferences; from setting up meetings with high-profile guests to drafting presentations; they are after someone with a committed can-do attitude who can anticipate their needs and solve problems.
The pace will be fast, and at times unexpected things will crop up, but you will thrive in this environment. In return they can offer you the opportunity to participate in some exciting and truly ground-breaking work, as well as have some fun along the way.
Millions of people are locked in poverty in the UK. They don’t believe that’s right. That’s why they’ve made it their mission to solve it. Their new strategy is to work alongside others to build public and political will for change and demand for solutions.
Whether you are a skilled administrator already or are starting out in your career, you will have a passion for what our Client does and what they are trying to achieve. With a knowledge of the environment and context in which they operate, you will also want to support and work towards their mission.
They need someone with strong administrative skills who enjoys a busy environment. You will be able to work to deadlines and will be comfortable in using your own initiative. A strong IT user, you will be self-organised and have the ability to work positively under pressure.
This role would also suit someone who is wanting to develop a career in communications or campaigning, and can bring a passion to this position.
Our Client is a social change organisation with a 100-year history. They are built on trust, show they care, and exist to make a difference.
They work with others to put forward sector-leading research, evidence, solutions and stories to the UK’s influencers and decision-makers.
They believe that a prosperous poverty-free UK is within reach - they just need more people to believe it too.
To make their vision a reality they need talent, ideas, skills and passion, plus they need to change some of what they do and how they do it. So, they’re embarking on a significant period of change - change that will see them become an outcomes-focused organisation that embraces new ways of working and modern practices.
If you share their passion, then they need to hear from you.
Closing date for applications is Thursday 21 February 2019
