Job description

Networks Assistant (part-time 0.6 FTE)

We are recruiting a Network Assistant to support the delivery of our Trust Leaders Network and other programmes run by Challenge Partners.

The role is for 22.5 hours a week

About Challenge Partners

Who we are: Challenge Partners is a practitioner-led education charity that enables collaboration between schools to enhance the life chances of all children, especially the most disadvantaged.

How we do it: The Challenge Partners central team works closely with school leaders and other education professionals to facilitate a variety of programmes and services for schools in our partnership. We ensure the knowledge and skills of the best in our network are available to everyone, reducing the variability in education provision whilst improving the performance of all schools, leaders, and pupils in the partnership.

Our team: There are currently just over 20 people in our growing team. We are dedicated to working hard for our schools whilst enjoying what we do and who we work with. You will be working in a friendly and dynamic group with backgrounds in education, the wider social enterprise and charity sector, and the corporate world. The majority of roles are school-facing, and team members work closely with leaders in our schools to generate and refine ideas and create maximum value for the network.

Job Purpose:

You will have an important role to play in supporting the delivery of our work with school trusts by providing administrative support to ensure the smooth running of our Trust Leaders’ Network. You may also be asked to contribute with other administrative tasks that support the delivery of our organisational priorities.  You will report to the Head of Network Development.

Key Responsibilities

  • Liaise with trust partners to communicate programme activity and assist with meeting preparation
  • Upload files, meeting papers or reports to Dropbox and GoogleDocs, update our Trust Leaders Network directory and manage our inbox, using our escalation process to redirect and respond to queries
  • Provide technical support for virtual meetings for the Trust Leaders Network and other events as required
  • Manage bookings and provide relevant information to the finance team for invoice generation, send out contracts and prepare expense claims for processing
  • Maintain our Salesforce CRM system, upload data as directed and maintain other programme dashboards used internally for planning, monitoring or evaluation purposes
  • Support across other networks, programmes and activities as required e.g. arranging virtual or in person national recruitment events

Person Specifications:

Specific skills and attitudes we are looking for in an applicant are as follows:

  • Good written and oral communication skills, with the ability to build rapport, express yourself concisely and appropriately with senior leaders
  • Excellent organisational skills and ability to prioritise and multi-task effectively
  • High computer literacy - confidence and competence in using GSuite, Microsoft programmes and Salesforce (or similar CRM system) would be an advantage
  • A willingness to learn, take initiative, identify and provide solutions and improvements
  • Attention to detail and pride in your work
  • Positivity, optimism and agility - we are a small organisation and all staff are expected to contribute across the organisation (and beyond their specific job role) to ensure our success and sustainability. You will therefore need to be flexible and comfortable with uncertainty
  • A passion for education, and a desire to make a difference

Experience of either administrative support or project management, communications, account management, business development, relationship management within the education sector or similar is desirable.

Benefits of working for Challenge Partners

  • 25 days of paid holiday per year, plus 8 additional days of bank holiday (pro-rata for part-time)
  • An employer contributed pension - we match up to 5% of your own contribution
  • Private healthcare
  • Flexible working hours
  • A school-based office in South Bermondsey. There is currently no requirement for staff to work in the office, but you may choose to do so.
  • A supportive and friendly team
  • A chance to make a real difference to educational outcomes
  • The opportunity to progress and develop skills in a dynamic and fast-growing team
  • The opportunity to interact with the children at our school (including weekly reading)

How to apply and our recruitment process

If you would like to be a part of our team, then please apply with:

  • A CV of no more than two pages
  • A cover letter of no more than two pages demonstrating how you meet the requirements of the role and the person specification.

Please note that we will disregard your application if we do not receive a CV and role-specific cover letter.
