Girlguiding North East England – two Administration roles required. One full time – 35 hours and one part time – 17.5 hours fixed term contract for 18 months with the possibility of extension.
Girlguiding North East England is part of Girlguiding, which is the leading charity for girls and young women in the UK with more than half of the female population involved in guiding at some point in their lives. We give our members a safe space in which to be themselves, have fun, build friendships, gain life skills and make a positive difference to their lives and the communities around them.
Girlguiding operates with a mix of paid workers and volunteers. We are unique in that we are a volunteer led organisation, with a team of senior volunteers working together to set strategy, and a small paid team supporting them in its delivery. We believe in being fair, open and inclusive in both employment and membership.
The region office team is currently made up of three full-time and four part-time members of staff. They work from a purpose-built facility at Monks Cross, on the outskirts of York. There are parking facilities on site for staff members, and bus stops and shops are a short walk away.
We are looking for someone with strong administration skills and an enthusiastic and positive outlook to join this small team. In this role you would be the first point of contact for many people communicating with the region office, and so you will need to be well presented, articulate and approachable, and able to positively represent Girlguiding North East England.
You will have responsibility for a number of daily tasks and processes, and so you will be proficient at working to set procedures and deadlines. You will also assist your fellow team members with tasks and projects, so will be willing and able to deal flexibly with ad hoc requests. You will be able to build good relationships quickly with a wide range of people.
