We are looking for an individual who can support the administration of the iST training function within the organisation. You will be working with both the academic tutors, students and occasionally the researchers. The training administration is a vital function in the smooth running of the training and we would like the individual to bring new ideas to help make things more efficient to make sure our students receive a high quality training experience.

More importantly we are looking for someone who has good organisation skills with great attention to detail, open to developing and learning, is proactive and can use their initiative to work on tasks to support the team.

Typical tasks will include: updating student details (registrations, attendance, leavers etc.), supporting graduation events, upkeep of student resources (handbooks, Dropbox etc.), library maintenance, occasional data collection for research projects and other miscellaneous tasks. 

Volunteers are unpaid. However, the Charity may reimburse volunteers for their reasonable travel costs.  If subsistence is unavailable onsite, the Charity at its discretion may give a subsistence allowance of £20.00 per week.

Ideally we are looking for someone who can commit to at least 2/3 days per week for a sustained period of 6 months.  

This opportunity will not involve working with children.
