We are an innovative not-for-profit organisation that helps to make life better for older people in the UK. We believe that everybody should matter, regardless of how old they are. We are now looking for a part time Service Co-ordinator to join our team on a contract until the 30th September 2018.

If you are a highly organised co-ordinator seeking a fresh, new challenge, this is a superb opportunity to take on a challenging, yet highly rewarding contract.

In this important position, you will have the chance to broaden your existing abilities and facilitate the success of services that are transforming lives on a daily basis.

As a Service Co-ordinator, you will ensure that our community services are delivered to an exceptional standard.

Working closely with the Service Manager, you’ll develop and implement the charity’s services, ensuring that all targets are met.

You’ll take ownership of the day-to-day co-ordination of services, being responsible for the delivery of a Buddy scheme, matching volunteers with older people who are experiencing social isolation. You will recruit, train, support and motivate volunteers to empower older people to make changes in their lives to alleviate loneliness.

Performing a range of duties and acting as an ambassador for the charity, you could be promoting the charity at an event, organising a recruitment fair or reporting on the difference we have made to an older persons life as a result of the service; the role is varied from day to day.

  • Knowledge and experience of general administrative processes and duties
  • Experience of maintaining databases
  • Proficiency in MS Office, email and the internet
