We’re an effective and ambitious local charity which delivers mentoring and activities for vulnerable 7 to 21 year olds across Bath and North East Somerset.
Our vision is a community in which all young people thrive. Our mission is to inspire our community to raise the aspirations of our young and most vulnerable. Young people are referred to us struggling with significant challenges at home, in school and with peer groups. We offer them a mix of one to one mentoring from local volunteers with a wide range of positive activities.
For the past twenty years our young people have been telling us they are happier and more confident from spending time with our mentors. We are proud to have delivered a commissioned service for the local council over the past two decades, a second commission supporting students excluded from education, and primary and secondary schools buying in our programmes. This year we’re expanding our work into open-access youth clubs and supporting other community groups to access our brilliant youth hub facilities.
With your help, we’ll continue to inspire local young lives.
We need a cheerful, experienced all-round good egg with excellent people skills to provide administrative support, including specific support to the project teams. It’s a really important role helping to keep our friendly, busy team happy and focused, and making sure our processes are efficient and effective.
Responsible for supporting project team members and dealing with outside suppliers and clients, you’ll need to be accurate and highly proficient in Word and Excel. You’ll need a friendly phone manner and to enjoy working both as part of a team and independently. In-house training will be provided for our database CharityLog. Our two-day mentor training is held three times a year on Saturdays and the Project Administrator will be needed to attend some of these sessions.
This is a year-round role but we are committed to supporting flexible part-time working e.g. around school hours or caring commitments.
Hours: 16 hours per week (3 days preferred, must include at least 5 hours on a Monday)
Salary: £8,320 pro rata (£19,500 full time equivalent)
