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 recruiting for two Project Support Officers to join the Transformation Team. The Project Support Officers are key roles in the team, providing project management support across programmes and projects to support the delivery of Girlguiding’s strategic plan.
We are looking for individuals with strong administrative, analytical and people skills, who are committed to making a real difference to Girlguiding’s members. We are particularly keen to hear from people with experience of working in a project management environment, with experience of reporting, project monitoring and maintaining project documentation.
The roles are based in the newly formed Transformation Portfolio Management Office (PMO) and will work across the portfolio; working closely with the Portfolio Office Manager, Portfolio Support Officer and Project Leads. The Transformation PMO function leads on the adoption of best practice, standards and provides support across the Transformation Portfolio.
Girlguiding values the differences that a diverse workforce brings and is committed to inclusivity, and to employing and supporting a diverse workforce. Girlguiding is proud to be part of the Stonewall Diversity Champions programme, a member of the Business Disability Forum, and a member of Time to Change. While Girlguiding’s young members may be women only, our staff team is mixed gender. We welcome applicants from all backgrounds.
We are committed to supporting our staff to achieve a good work-life balance and offer flexible working options wherever we reasonably can. Girlguiding is a COVID secure employer, providing support for all employees during the current pandemic. All staff are required to carry out our online health and safety training and complete a DSE risk assessment to ensure we can provide the support you require.
