Office Manager Required

About the opportunity:

This position is an opportunity for someone who has time available to lead a team of volunteers within Nailsea Disability Initiative, a registered charity supporting the disabled, seniors and carers in North Somerset.

About Nailsea Disability Initiative:

Nailsea Disability Initiative is based in Nailsea, North Somerset and the charity is run entirely by a group of friendly, hardworking volunteers.  We hold a vast amount of information about products and services relevant to the groups we support and offer either a drop-in centre for clients or we book appointments for more in-depth assistance.

We offer free information and advice about benefits and grants and can assist clients in completing benefit applications for Personal Independence Payment, Disabled Living Allowance, Employment Support Allowance, Universal Credit, Attendance Allowance, Carers Allowance, Pension Credit, Disabled Parking Badges and Diamond Travel Card.

 What are they looking for:

We are looking for an office manager to support the running of the Nailsea Disability Initiative as part of a volunteer team.

The position is for someone who can ideally work 2 days a week (10 hours)

The centre is open Monday to Thursday between the hours of 10.00am and 3.00pm.

The volunteering opportunity is for someone with a friendly, polite, helpful manner who has an interest in helping the less able members of our society.  We are looking for someone who is organised, self-motivated, can participate in discussions and be an active, engaging addition to the team but who is also willing to learn and is confident in using Microsoft Outlook and Word.

The role consists of providing administrative support such as answering emails, phone calls, managing the volunteer diary, receiving and processing volunteer applications, interviewing and office administration.

This is a really important and rewarding role and will provide someone with an opportunity to use their knowledge and experience gained over the years, or for someone who is looking to widen their knowledge and gain additional skills and experience. Previous office or charity experience is desirable but not essential as training will be provided. This role is subject to a DBS check, which we will fund, and you will be reimbursed for travel expenses within the North Somerset area.
