Army Families Federation – Office Support Assistant (part time)

Our aim at the Army Families Federation is to give Army families a voice. We listen to what they have to say and provide information and guidance that supports all aspects of family life – from housing to childcare and schooling, from healthcare to employment and training – both in the UK and overseas. And, as an independent charity, we work hard to make sure that the voice of Army families is heard by policy makers and service providers. If you have a keen interest in the quality of life of Army families and are looking for a flexible role in a friendly, but focused, organisation, we would love to receive your application.

About the role

This is an exciting role for a talented Administrator who is looking for a new challenge and wants to join a fast-paced, high-performing team. The role is primarily administrative but includes providing support to the Business Support Manager and Finance and Governance Director in financial administration and some diary and document management support to the Executive Management Board.

The post is part-time with the possibility to agree flexible hours (minimum 20 per week – up to 25 per week) to be worked Monday – Friday within normal office hours.

Annual salary will depend on hours agreed, with 20 hours per week attracting £11,013.60 up to 25 hours
per week attracting £13,767.00 per annum.

This is an office-based role. For the right candidate we would be happy to have a conversation about the potential for some home-based working.

What we are looking for

The successful candidate will have advanced knowledge and experience of using the Microsoft Office package, great organisational skills with attention to detail and the ability to spot numerical errors, as well as confidence in troubleshooting basic IT issues and interest in developing further skills in this area.
All our staff have an understanding and current knowledge of Army life and its impact on families and a keen interest in the welfare and quality of life for Army families.
