We are seeking a self-motivated administrative and events assistant to play a key role in our friendly team. We are looking for someone with the drive, initiative, teamwork and organisational skills to thrive in a busy charity committed to improving children and young people’s life chances.
PSHE (personal, social, health and economic) education is the school curriculum subject that prepares pupils for life and work. PSHE lessons cover some of the most pressing issues facing young people today including relationships and sex, mental and physical health, staying safe online, economic wellbeing, careers and the importance of equality and diversity.
The PSHE Association is the national body for the subject. A charity and membership organisation, the Association supports a national network of over 40,000 teachers and schools with advice, training and resources. We work nationally to raise PSHE standards for all children and raise its status on the curriculum. This is an exciting time for us and we are expanding our services – including our range of face-to-face and online training – to meet growing demand.
The applicant will be expected to take on a variety of responsibilities associated with the organisation and administration of the office, promoting and helping to organise our series of conference and training events, processing memberships and payments, and maintaining and updating our database of contacts as well as supporting the team as required. We have built our online training offer considerably, so we are particularly interested in candidates with some experience of supporting webinars/online training – or those who have an aptitude and willingness to learn about this area.
