Good at project management? Get a kick out of being highly organised and efficient? Want a different take on office management? We are looking for a part-time Operations and Projects Assistant to make sure our small but lively team works as effectively as possible. Someone who encourages us to maximise the resources at our disposal, who loves it when every day is different and has a can-do attitude.
The role will support the development and delivery of Foyer Federation’s operations and projects as well as the improvement of our internal systems and processes.
This role is excellent for someone who has transferable skills from previous operations, administration or HR roles and would like to move into the youth and homelessness sector.
Who we are looking for
We are seeking a part-time, organised, savvy and highly efficient Operations and Projects Assistant who is eager to join a creative and ambitious organisation at a critical point in our 30-year history. We are looking for someone who gets their kicks from making things run smoothly ‘behind the scenes’ and who loves to help support colleagues to do their job better.
You will be a ruthlessly organised, painstakingly diligent professional with a killer eye for detail. Your administrative and communications skills will be second to none, and you will have a strong knowledge and understanding of the charity sector.
Who We Are
The Foyer Federation is a small, innovative youth charity working to improve the lives of young people who can’t live at home. Since 1992, we have worked with a network of Foyers to inspire, challenge and quality assure approaches to developing the skills and resources young people need to thrive, not just cope.
We believe all young people can shape a successful journey into adulthood if they have access to the right training, contacts and opportunities to invest in their talents. We’re leading a movement of like-minded organisations and individuals who want to improve the prospects of all young people through an asset-based approach, which we call ‘Advantaged Thinking’. We’re committed to working with our network of Foyers and external experts to improve the ‘offer’ for young people.

This is a busy and challenging role within a small, friendly team. You’ll have up-to-date IT skills, a drive to improve efficiency and the creativity to streamline our operations. Being highly organised doesn’t stop you from embracing change and using your initiative to help the charity grow. You’re the kind of person who deviates from the plan if it’ll make things work better.

Who We Are
Migrateful runs cookery classes led by refugees, asylum seekers and migrants struggling to integrate and access employment. The cookery classes provide ideal conditions not just for learning English and building confidence, but also for promoting contact and cultural exchange with the wider community.
