Part-time, 25 hours per week – flexible working arrangements considered
Toynbee Hall’s services team runs 5 programme streams of activity with multiple projects within each one. Between these streams thousands of people a year get advice, attend events and community activities, volunteer and run their own projects.
Our diverse, enthusiastic and creative team work hard everyday to make East London a Fairer and Happier place. The team are brilliant at doing, at helping and at getting a lot done with very little resources. And we need your help to make us efficient as possible.
You’ll counter balance the teams creativity by putting into place systems to help them plan, manage and communicate projects. You’ll reduce duplication of work, and simplify daily life by helping us all use shared processes, checklists and ways of communicating. You’ll have your eye on risk, on the things that need reviewing and updating regularly and help us to prioritise the important over the urgent, so we can make real and sustained progress rather than constantly reinventing the wheel.
You’ll be straightforward, friendly and easy to work with. You’ll design systems that are easy and instinctive for human beings to use and support them to use them. You’ll be confident in reminding us of the benefits of using systems, and in supporting your colleagues to work in new ways.
Your role will report into the Head of Services and you will work with Programme Managers across services to ensure that we can see the value in the work we do, are delivering on the organisations strategy and are sharing information with the rest of the organisation in a supportive and helpful way.
This is a new way of working for us – so we’ll be grateful for your confidence, experience and patience. In exchange for all the above you’ll get to work in a historic building, with a really friendly and supportive team and do work you can be really proud of. We can’t wait to meet you.
