We are looking for an administrator to support the organisation with a range of tasks. This role would suit someone who can give around 30mins a day.

Detailed description

Everyone who works for the organisation does so voluntarily. Overall organisation and management is the responsibility of the steering group; clinical work is the responsibility of the counsellors and supervisors and the day to day running and administration is co-ordinated by the administrator. 

We are looking for someone who can work from home answering client enquiries by phone and email, send/receive application forms and forward these on to supervisors for approval. You would be expected to manage the client waiting list, communicate with clients and counsellors about availability and keep records to support end of year reporting. There is some minute taking at steering group meetings one evening a month and occasionally visit the Bedford Road clinic to collect post/donations.

The right candidate would need to be organised. They can themselves gain skills by attending twice yearly CPD.

This role would suit someone who will value providing support to an organisation that relies solely on volunteers which wouldn’t exist otherwise.

Laptop and Phone supplied.
