Office Support Assistant (Part-time)

Job Description

Our aim at the Army Families Federation is to give Army families a voice. We listen to what they have to say and provide information and guidance that supports all aspects of family life – from housing to childcare and schooling, from healthcare to employment and training – both in the UK and overseas. And, as an independent charity, we work hard to make sure that the voice of Army families is heard by policy makers and service providers. If you have a keen interest in the quality of life of Army families and are looking for a flexible role in a friendly, but focused, organisation, we would love to receive your application.

This is an exciting role for a talented Administrator who is looking for a new challenge and wants to join a fast-paced, high-performing team. The role is primarily administrative but includes providing support to the Office Manager.

The post is part-time, 20-25 hours per week to be worked Monday – Friday within normal office hours. Annual salary is £12,500 – £16,000 per annum.

This is an office-based role. However, for the right candidate we are happy to have a conversation about the potential for some home-based working of 1-2 days a week.

The successful candidate will have advanced knowledge and experience of using the Microsoft Office package, great organisational skills with attention to detail and the ability to spot numerical errors, as well as confidence in troubleshooting basic IT issues and interest in developing further skills in this area.

All our staff have an understanding and current knowledge of Army life and its impact on families, and a keen interest in the welfare and quality of life for Army families.

A full list of the skills and experience we are looking for can be found in the Job Description.
