NGDT National Coordinator

This is an exciting and challenging opportunity to play a leading role managing the work of the NGDT.  

We are small charity with two members of staff - a Chief Executive and the National Coordinator - and a board of dedicated trustees.   We operate virtually, with no office base, so everyone works from home.  

To be considered for this role, you will have experience of delivering services for clients and providing advice on sensitive and confidential issues.

Your energy and drive, together with your ability to communicate with clarity and impact, will keep the organisation on track, making sure things happen on schedule.  Your people and listening skills will ensure that clients seeking advice feel that they have been treated with consideration and respect.   Experience of managing projects, office management and communication skills are therefore essential. 

Our meetings are mostly in central London, Birmingham and the South East, so you should ideally be located within easy reach of these.

Role Purpose

In our small charity, the National Coordinator role is key to keeping everything on track.  The successful candidate will be responsible for the day to day management of the NGDT’s business as well as leading work on key projects.

The National Coordinator is also the first port of call for many different people and organisations and discussions are often of a sensitive and confidential nature.  The role therefore requires someone with strong people skills who is discrete and emphatic.

This is a part-time role (30 hours a week) working from home.  The successful candidate must be prepared to work those hours flexibly to be responsive to the needs of clients who may call at any time and to be available for discussions and meetings with trustees and stakeholders.
