Elsie Normington Foundation was established in 2013 to create for the Highlands a specialist play centre and respite facility in Inverness. The Funds were secured during a ten year period of intensive fundraising and the buildings were constructed during 2022-2023. The Haven Centre is now fully operational providing a Specialist Play Centre, Community Café and Haven Suites.
We are looking for an enthusiastic person who would like to make a significant difference to the lives of children and young people with complex and multiple disabilities, by supporting the staff team with administration skills. This post is for a period of 1 year but may extend further subject to sufficient funding being in place.
As an administrator, you must be a self-starter who will engage with the staff and be able to set up appropriate admin systems, keeping administration records in an appropriate filed order. The post would also expect you to keep day to day book-keeping records on Quick Books, be able to work on your own initiative answering telephone enquiries and be involved in booking out the Haven Suites. These hours can be worked on a flexible basis and there may also be occasions of working unsocial hours if there was a large fundraising event.
This post is office based at the Haven Centre in 45 Murray Road, Smithton, Inverness and relevant equipment will be provided, such as desk, laptop and phone. The post will be supervised by the Services manager.
The successful candidate will be a capable and talented individual who possesses excellent communication skills both oral and written along with excellent organisational skills. In return we can offer a very stimulating and rewarding position in the not-for-profit sector.
Previous administration experience is essential.
