We’re recruiting three Charity Administrators through Kickstart

We are recruiting three Charity Administrators as part of the government’s Kickstart scheme.

Are you a super-organised communicator and problem solver? Would you go the extra mile to make customers and staff happy? Want to gain real life employability skills in an exciting charity doing amazing work with young people? If so, we’d love to hear from you.

We are a national charity with huge impact, enabling around half a million children and young people to become informed, engaged and active citizens each year. With the easing of COVID restrictions and the recent appointment of our new CEO, we have ambitious plans to do even more and are looking for up to three people to help us do that.

These are new posts and so the duties and roles may develop to suit your strengths, abilities and passions as well as reflecting any changes to our work.
