Community First Yorkshire runs a number of projects which aim to build inclusive, pro-active and resilient communities across Yorkshire. We are seeking an experienced administrator to help ensure the smooth day-to-day running of the organisation’s larger projects by delivering customer service and providing administrative support to the project team.
It’s a varied post which will be challenging at times. You’ll need to be able to cope with changing priorities, urgent demands and fluctuating workloads, but you’ll also have support and will be working for a great local charity whose mission is to inspire, strengthen and empower communities of place, interest and identity.
If you’re an enthusiastic, proactive and organised individual who has project administration experience, then this may be the role for you. You’re not expected to be a qualified project manager, but you’ll be supporting project staff to maintain project logs, including budgets and plans, so it would be useful if you’re familiar with these tools and have a good level of numeracy and literacy.
It’s imperative you’re an effective communicator to ensure that information flows and to help you deal with enquiries over the telephone and by email to the project inboxes. You’ll also have lots of contact with project stakeholders and colleagues from different departments within the organisation, many of whom work remotely, so it’s important that you’re professional and articulate in your communications.
You’ll be comfortable organising and attending meetings and events, including virtual meetings, and you’ll be familiar with managing diaries. You’re already an experienced minute-taker too, so capturing notes and actions from meetings is second nature to you.
We’ll be honest, there’s likely to be quite a bit of data inputting and collating information for reports, but you’ll be proficient in the use of Microsoft Office, especially Word, Excel and Access, so this will be something you can work through efficiently and effectively. You’ll sometimes need to work to tight deadlines too, and may have to manage conflicting priorities. You’ll be supported all the way though; we’re a ‘can do’ team that helps each other.
