Praxis is a dynamic, award-winning human rights charity supporting migrants in crisis or at-risk, ensuring that their essential human needs are met and that they are able to overcome the barriers they face. We have more than 35 years of experience working with migrant communities, and in 2019 we supported around 2,000 people through expert legal advice, housing and peer support. Our holistic approach supports people away from a point of crisis and destitution towards safety, economic independence, social engagement and greater emotional wellbeing.
This is an exciting opportunity to play a significant role in a busy and cutting edge charity supporting migrants at risk or in crisis. You will ensure the safe and efficient running of our busy advice centre and smooth operations by taking responsibility for - and developing - all areas related to reception, building and office services including IT, health and safety at work, service contracts, relevant policies and administrative systems.
You will have substantial professional experience in a similar role within a charity or public sector and have good knowledge of relevant regulatory frameworks and compliance issues. You will be energetic, creative, resourceful and highly organized. You must relish a challenge and be able to combine a hands-on role with an ability to take responsibility, think strategically and solve problems. You must enjoy working collaboratively and be passionate about supporting Praxis to deliver its objectives.
This role requires flexibility, initiative and discretion. You should be highly organised and proactive with strong people and communication skills and have a good working knowledge of Microsoft 365 systems, including SharePoint and MS Teams. You should be committed to self-improvement and respond positively to constructive feedback when given, as well as being a committed team player.
We are an equal opportunity employer and strongly encourage applications from those with lived experience of migration, and from diverse applicants regardless of age, disability, gender reassignment, marital/civil partnership status, race, religion or belief, sex, sexual orientation, or pregnancy/maternity leave status.
