Administration Assistant

  • Part time
  • £15,398 pro-rata
  • 197 Hamilton Road, Cambuslang
  • Closing 28th November 2019

The LEAP organisation is a well-established, award winning charity which provides free practical assistance to people over the age of 50 who are experiencing difficulties due to their physical or mental health conditions.

Within LEAP’s Hands On Project, the handyperson service, with the assistance of trained volunteers, helps older people, by carrying out a range of small repair jobs and tasks around the home to help them remain safe in their own home. We also offer a befriending service which matches volunteers with clients in their own home to provide companionship and a chat, helping older people to feel less lonely and isolated. The volunteers also assist individuals to become more active in their community by providing support to access local activities, therefore improving social connections, health and wellbeing.

We are looking to recruit an enthusiastic and motivated Handyperson volunteer jobs co-ordinator (Administration Assistant) to co-ordinate the delivery of our handyperson service. You will support our team of volunteers and project supervisor to deliver effective front-line practical support to older people around their home.

You will:

  • provide administrative support to the handyperson service supervisor
  • receive job requests from clients by phone, via email, in writing and face to face
  • be responsible for the allocating of volunteers’ jobs, therefore good organisational skills and ability to organise work schedules is essential
  • be computer literate with a range of information technology skills including a good level of proficiency with Microsoft Office applications and experience of database maintenance
  • be highly organised with excellent attention to detail and an ability to work flexibly with the rest of the team
  • have an ability to deal calmly, sensitively and appropriately with our clients is essential to the role. A professional approach towards colleagues, volunteers and service users, mindful of confidentiality and anti-discriminatory practices is required
  • have an ability to work independently and as part of a team
  • be required to act on your own initiative
  • ideally have experience of working in/with the public and/or voluntary sector
