Current vacancies:

Team and Programmes Assistant

Contract type: Full time, permanent.

Location: The normal place of work is: Aldridge offices, 8 City Road, London EC1Y 2AA, however the post is expected to be home working for the initial few weeks of employment due to the current situation.

Working Hours: 9am-5.30pm with an hour lunchbreak (occasionally flexibility may be required).

Salary: £27,000 to £32,000 depending on experience.

The role

To help ensure the smooth running of a busy office housing small teams from two companies, we need an enthusiastic self-starter to join us.

The Team and Programmes Assistant will provide a wide range of high-quality office management and administrative support to both teams. Outside of the office management duties, the role will entail spending approximately 80% of time supporting the Aldridge Foundation team across a wide range of duties and 20% of their time supporting Aldridge Wealth, and specifically their MD with diary, travel and other administrative duties.

It’s a varied, interesting role for a proactive individual keen to work across a number of different initiatives every day – no two days will be the same. The ideal candidate will be a confident, proactive ‘all-rounder’ with some previous office management and secretarial experience who will be able to hit the ground running, will always be one step ahead to ensure that our busy team, including Chairman, CEOs and other programme managers are able to use their time effectively and will be more than happy to muck in when necessary in order to get the job done. They will also have strong basic IT skills, including setting up and working with a variety of hardware and software systems that support remote working (Google, Zoom and Teams meetings).

If you are excited by the opportunity to gain experience in both a charity and a commercial organisation whilst also working on a variety of projects, developing project management, CRM, and donor relationship administration which ultimately change the lives of the young people we work with, then we want to hear from you!
