Family Voice Administration Assistant – working from home
15 hours / week – flexible working
Family Voice Norfolk is looking for an Assistant to support the Administration Manager in co-ordinating its activities. We are a group of parents and family members of children with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND). We work in partnership with service providers and decision-makers in Education, Health and Social Care to improve services for families like ours.
The successful applicant will be assisting with the day-to-day administration of Family Voice Norfolk and will need to have:
- good interpersonal skills
- excellent communication and organisational skills
- the ability to empathise with and understand the issues facing families of children with SEND
- the ability to use IT effectively, including MS Office
Attendance at one or two meetings per month within Norfolk will be necessary, so a full driving licence and own transport is required. We aim to hold meetings at family-friendly times and, of course, will reimburse travel expenses. The working hours can be scheduled as suits you, but spread out over the week is probably more effective than concentrated over a couple of consecutive days, as you may need to pass on last-minute changes to meetings or respond to urgent requests for information.
Applicants are invited to email a CV and covering letter, including details of two referees, to Bernadette at firstname.lastname@example.org by Tuesday 7 May 2019. Further details can be supplied on request. Click here for a full job description.
