Are you impatient to financial hardship? Do you believe that the people experiencing financial hardship know best how to end it? Are you an organised person, who likes problem solving and helping busy teams work efficiently? Then we want to hear from you.
Turn2us is a charity that gives people information about what benefits and other financial support they can access, gives money in the form of grants, and works to break down the barriers that cause financial hardship, including racism, gender inequality, classism, ableism, and homophobia.
Turn2us is looking for someone to fill an important role in the Finance and Resources directorate that will help ensure continuity of service and support to all Turn2us staff, from providing them with the equipment and information they need when they first join, to responding to any IT issues they are having, as well as maintaining an office space that supports everyone’s needs.
The officer role will work alongside the Head of IT in delivering improvements and introducing new tools and processes that can help Turn2us staff with their work. This role will also be responsible for producing and maintaining staff training materials, and configuration of existing and new applications, among other activities aimed at maintaining a level of service to staff.
We want to hear from candidates who are passionate about social justice and who want to make a positive difference to the lives of people struggling financially, while being ambitious with their own personal growth and working hard to achieve their goals.
