Children’s Liver Disease Foundation (CLDF) is a national charity based in Birmingham. We take action against the effects of childhood liver disease, providing information, support, research funds and a voice for all affected. At least twenty children are diagnosed with a liver disease every week in the UK. CLDF is the only UK charity dedicated to fighting all forms of childhood liver disease, for which there is still no cure. With innovative support programmes and development plans to increase our reach even further, the charity never stands still.
We are looking to recruit a confident and efficient Office Manager to provide maternity cover for a 12 month period. This is an important and central role within the charity and you will be responsible for all areas of office administration, taking the lead to ensure the day to day smooth running of the office. You will possess a natural ability to think on your feet and find solutions to operational challenges. No day is ever the same. You will need a flexible, calm, proactive approach with a can do attitude and be willing to develop within the role.
Key responsibilities include implementing and maintaining IT hardware and software systems (including telephones); management of the charity’s database (Raiser’s Edge); direct mail communications; administration and implementation of all office Health & Safety (including holding the posts of First Aider and Fire Marshal); managing the office volunteer workforce; overseeing and advising on the charity’s GDPR/Data Protection compliance; providing administration for the management of CLDF’s research portfolio and supporting the Chief Executive in all administrative matters relating to recruitment and HR, safeguarding and governance. For a full summary of all operational duties and responsibilities please refer to the job description.
The role requires someone who is hard-working and tenacious, has the ability to work on their own initiative, with excellent organisation and time management skills and who thrives in a busy yet small team environment.
If you have a proven track record in office management and administration, with the drive to play a supportive role in helping the charity achieve its goals and an empathy for the life changing work we do, then we’d love to hear from you.
