Work with us
(Closing date: 5pm Monday 2nd August 2021)
Would you like to manage our lovely and characterful office in Wharf Street? We’re looking for an Office Coordinator. You’ll be at the heart of all that we do – working with the public, our members, volunteers and small staff team. You’ll be joining the Trust at a crucial time, as we seek to expand our work within the city whilst maintaining a welcoming and friendly environment.
As a small team, we all have a ‘let’s get stuck in’ ethos where we muck in where we can – the work can at times be physical, and there may be more than one priority at the same time – however, the sheer breadth of our work makes for an interesting and rewarding role, mixing routine with the unexpected.
Who are we looking for?
Reporting to the Development & Engagement Manager, the role provides administrative support to the Trust’s Board, staff, volunteers, members, and supporters but also includes engagement with a wide range of external stakeholders. The successful candidate will also oversee the Trust’s day-to-day financial processes. This is a diverse, hands-on role which requires professionalism, interpersonal skills, energy, and attention to detail.
In addition, you will have the ability to manage a busy and varied workload, determine priorities, change direction at short notice, as required, whilst remaining calm under pressure.
This role would particularly suit an organised, proactive, self-motivated and highly adaptable person with excellent communication skills and a good understanding of data management.
The role is offered on a 35 hour, five day a week basis (Monday to Friday) at an initial salary of £23,000. Due to the nature of this role, the successful candidate will ultimately be required to be in the office for the majority of their working week, however there may be opportunities to work remotely for some of the time – in line with the Trust’s current Covid-19 working practices.
Core hours are between 8am and 6pm, during which staff are usually expected to work a seven hour day. On occasions where there are evening/weekend events and meetings (particularly during Heritage Open Days) we provide time off in lieu. We offer a contributory pension and 25 days leave plus bank holidays and other holiday periods such as Christmas when the Trust does not work.
Your line manager will be Meleri Roberts, Development & Engagement Manager, although you will also work collaboratively with other Trust team members and volunteers.
Note: Closing date for applications is 5pm on Monday 2nd August.
