Administrator working from home
on average between 15 and 20 hours p/w
flexible working (self-employed)
Family Voice Norfolk is looking for an experienced Administrator to help
co-ordinate its activities. We are a group of parents and family members of children with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND). Family Voice Norfolk is the Parent Carer Forum for Norfolk, part of a national system of parent carer groups who work locally but also feed into the National Network of Parent Carer Forums (NNPCF), which has direct contact with government. We work in partnership with service planners, commissioners and providers to imagine and design better services that meet the needs of families.
The successful applicant will be assisting with the day-to-day administration of Family Voice Norfolk. They must have good interpersonal skills, excellent communication, facilitation and organisational skills, and be able to empathise with and understand the issues facing families of children with disabilities. They will need to liaise with a variety of stakeholders. The ability to use IT effectively, including MS Office, is essential.
To a large extent you will be able to organise your own time but will be required to attend on average up to two meetings a week. These are online at the moment but will eventually involve travel within Norfolk, so your own transport is desirable. We aim to be family friendly and hold meetings at times that fit in with the lives of our steering group and members, all of whom have children with SEND.
We are currently a Constituted Group. You can find out more about how we are organised and our aims here on our website. Within the next year we intend to become a Community Interest Company (CIC), which would mean that this would become an employed role. You would be involved in discussions around this. You can find out more about how groups are organised here.
You will find a full job description here. Applicants are invited to email a CV and covering letter, including details of two referees, to our Chair at firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday 9 October 2020. Interviews will be held w/c 19 October 2020.
