Betknowmore UK is a small (but growing) charity trying to reduce the harms caused by gambling. We’re looking hard for someone who can come in and help us with day to day governance and administration - we have reasonably good governance at a policy/strategic level, but the time this is taking day-to-day has increased substantially and we need someone who can help update policies and processes, ensure they’re followed, support our Trustees/Board members and SLT with necessary administration, and generally make sure everyone is able to do what they need to do when they need to do it.
There'll be an occasional need to come to an event/meeting, but otherwise we're happy for you to work from home. Similarly, there are times you'll need to be available for meetings and so on, but we're happy around these for you to work whatever hours work for you - we have staff who work early in the day or later in the evening as that happens to fit in with their lives.
This could be a job for someone with a few years admin experience and some knowledge of governance who wants to build a career in the governance and compliance sector, possibly building up to being a Company Secretary/Compliance Director/etc. We’d be happy to support them in their career, paying for training and/or professional body membership fees. Or it could be a job for someone with lots of professional or life experience that has given them great admin skills and knowledge of charity governance who now wants to use those while working to help an important cause. We're open to anyone with the right skills - get in touch with a CV and cover letter and we'll get back to you as soon as possible!
At The Bike Project we provide an innovative solution to one of the most pressing problems facing asylum seekers and refugees on arrival to the UK: access to transport when living on a limited income, which for asylum seekers is as little as £5.66 per day.
Our mission is simple: each year we match refugees and asylum seekers with the many thousands of bikes that go abandoned or unloved around the country. We then go on to support these new bike owners to realise the emotional, practical and physical benefits of cycling.
10 years since that first bike donation, we are about to donate our 10, 000th bike and have expanded the project to include multiple programs, from refugee befriending services to women-only cycling classes.
We have supported tens of thousands of refugees to get access to bikes, learn to cycle and created a community of colleagues, refugees, volunteers and supporters. And we’ve grown rapidly in the last few years, from £720k turnover in 2018, to £2.2m turnover in 2021
Despite our successes, this is just the start. The demand from refugees for our work far outstrips our ability to meet it so we are looking to continue to grow until every refugee in the UK has the opportunity to start cycling.
If you want to be a part of that, read on!

About The Healthcare Workers’ Foundation
Set up in response to the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020 by healthcare workers, for healthcare workers, the Healthcare Workers' Foundation (HWF) exists to support everyone working within the sector by providing emotional, financial and workplace support.
We believe that by improving welfare provision for these workers, we will reduce staff attrition and create positive working environments, thus improving patient care.
The needs of our beneficiaries are at the core of everything we do. As the charity has evolved, we have developed new services and created long-term support mechanisms; while the worst of the pandemic is over, the workload pressures, mental health struggles and financial difficulties continue.
The charity currently consists of five staff and is a 100% remote and flexible working organisation. In a little over two years, we have raised £1.3m in funds and over £3m including gifts-in-kind. We currently offer the following services to healthcare workers:
- Bereaved family support and scholarships
- Professional counselling
- Staff room refurbishments
- Financial Support
We also undertake research to establish where we can better help our healthcare workers, and tailor our service offering to meet their needs.
Please send us your CV and a covering letter; both documents should be no longer than two sides of A4.
Your covering letter should clearly demonstrate how your skills and experience match our Job Description.

CoachBright is a social mobility movement. We are working towards a day where no young person’s background determines their future. Still now, in 2022, there is a postcode lottery. We are at a crisis point. If you are born poor, you are likely to stay poor. The chances of a young person succeeding in life are largely down to where they live.
Our mission is to instil young people with the independence and resilience to lead the lives they want. Now, more than ever, it is essential that young people from disadvantaged backgrounds get the support they need to achieve their goals. Covid-19 has further widened the gap between the pupils who have the income and resources to withstand educational disruption, during the past few months and those who don’t. That’s why we’re playing our part to narrow the gap and support a generation of pupils to be their best.
We are young, ambitious and optimistic, and are looking for someone as passionate as we are about creating a socially just world. If you get out of bed to transform the life chances of young people and want to shape and grow a values-driven social mobility organisation, we would love to hear from you.
