This is a really exciting time to join Girlguiding. With nearly half a million members we are the largest charity dedicated to girls and young women in the UK, and one of the largest and leading youth charities. We are on a mission to amplify the voices of girls and young women, so they can champion change in their own lives and the wider world; to build strong partnerships that can increase our reach and impact; and to increase the support we offer our 100,000 amazing adult volunteers who deliver incredible experiences to young people across the UK every week. We have recently agreed our 2020+ strategy and begun a process of significant change: transforming the organisation so it can meet the challenges of the future by putting young people and volunteers at the heart of our organisation.
Girlguiding is looking for a proactive administrator to work across the Operations directorate to provide first class support to four department heads and ensure the smooth and efficient running of directorate processes. This role will also work directly with our volunteer leadership teams for British Girlguiding Overseas and International activity and answer enquiries from members and the public on these subjects.
The post holder will be an effective communicator, team orientated, organised and customer focussed - comfortable working across a range of teams and focus areas including girl experience, volunteer experience, safe practice and delivery partnerships.
