Job Description

Do you want to be part of an organisation that fights for children every single day? Then join us as Risk Management Team Coordinator, providing administrative support to Save the Children UK’s (SCUK) Risk Management Team.

In our Support Services department, we fight for children every single day. We provide leadership and direction in the business of running an efficient organisation. We ensure our resources are used to maximum effect. We go the extra mile - and we don’t rest until the work is done.

As Team Coordinator, you will play a key role in a newly formed team, led by the Head of Risk Management and compromising Risk Management, Health, Safety and Security, Insurance and our outsourced Internal Audit and Business Continuity providers. Together, the team works across all divisions of the charity to identify, assess and manage some of the key risks that Save the Children faces in their UK operations as well as our people working and travelling overseas. Key elements of this role include:

  • Booking staff and others on Hostile Environment Awareness Training (HEAT) courses
  • Coordinating H&S Committee meetings, taking minutes and issuing papers
  • Coordinating risk and internal audit meetings with key stakeholders, taking minutes and issuing papers
  • Assisting with annual insurance renewal information collation, analysis and recording
  • Developing and implementing appropriate administrative systems for the team.

To be successful you will have a good standard of computer literacy with demonstrable practical experience of using Microsoft Excel, Word, PowerPoint, SharePoint and Outlook. Highly organised, you will have excellent coordinator skills, a proven customer service orientation and a willingness to take on extra projects/tasks as required. In addition you will have:

  • Familiarity of working within an international context and across time zones and/or able to deal tactfully with colleagues from a wide variety of cultural backgrounds and countries, across multiple time zones, using email, Skype and telephone as well as in person
  • Strong attention to detail and discretion in dealing with sensitive or confidential information
  • A very high standard of written and spoken English
  • The ability to cope with demanding and variable workloads and remain calm under pressure as well as ability to use initiative when faced with problems.

We are especially keen to engage an individual who has a desire to develop knowledge in Health & Safety and/or Safety & Security and/or Risk Management with a view to developing a future career in that area. Successful completion of a NEBOSH General Certificate within six months of starting in the post is a requirement of this role; fees and attendance will be paid for by SCUK. In addition, we also offer the opportunity to combine this role with studying for an apprenticeship in Business Administration (subject to meeting minimum standards set by the Government).

At Save the Children we are committed to the safeguarding and protection of children in our work. We will do everything possible to ensure that only those who are suitable to work with children are recruited to work for us. This post is subject to a range of vetting checks including a criminal records disclosure.

If you share our belief in the power of children, join the fight. It takes relentless determination, creativity and a real commitment to real change. Because every child should be able to make their mark on their world, and help to build a better future. We look forward to hearing from you.
