The company

A leading charity website and fundraising platform in the UK and Australia. The vision is to mobilise the world’s wealth to bring joy, and help the suffering. Currently working with over 1000 clients uplifting donations by tens of millions of pounds.

The company has grown quickly and has been acquired a few months ago by The Access Group - one of the top 20 largest tech companies in the UK - to become a world leading solution.

Who you are

To take on this role, you are a smart, structured person who is motivated and self organising. You are someone who is unflustered being thrown in the deep end of any environment and act with grace. You can facilitate, have good writing skills and are conscientious.

As a person you are positive and energy giving, liberal and open minded. You are motivated by social projects and charity. The knowledge you are contributing more to charities through the impact in your role than some of the top major donors in the country, is a big driver for you.

What is the role

The role is ultimately to increase the effectiveness of the Founder. This is ultimately to build space in the diary for creativity and innovation, and being able to learn how to prioritise time and safeguard space, and who is able to cope under high pressure and not get flustered being given important last minute tasks to manage such as organising a dinner etc. etc.

The role will include diary, email and office management. You will be working on special projects like managing an office redesign or team offsite. You’ll be balancing background research tasks, organising events, typing up notes from meetings or preparing presentations.

You will also be helping to streamline other prominent charity roles the Founder has, including Chairman roles across theatre and immersive experience and older people care. The role will include interacting with high profile people.

Skills required

This is a tech company so being tech savvy is a plus, and as a minimum, being a fast typist with good keyboard skills. You’ll be using tools like Google Docs to create slides and share documents, Trello, Salesforce, iCal, Evernote, LinkedIn for helping on recruitment and Slack for day to day recruitment. You don’t need to have used these before, but need to be comfortable managing work in tools like these.
