Part time (22 hours per week) Mon - Thu 9am - 3pm

We are seeking a friendly individual to greet and assist people visiting our centre and to provide a variety of administrative tasks.

The Salvation Army, a global faith based charity, has built a trusted brand and provides social services to those in need spanning 135 years. We provide a wide range of social work programmes, from parenting support, to emergency accommodation, rehabilitation, welfare support, budgeting advice, counselling & life skills, family tracing and much more.  Our values underpin our mission of caring for people, transforming lives and reforming society.

This is an exciting time to join our team as we are embarking on a project to extend our services to those in need.   You will have the opportunity to contribute into this project.

The successful candidate will be confident and comfortable working independently as you will be sitting at the reception desk.  You will work methodically, and have proven experience working through set processes, have good attention to detail and have a high level of accuracy.

This is a varied role, where you will spend around 50% of your time on financial tasks and the remainder of time either greeting and assisting visitors or completing other administrative tasks.

The successful candidate will have the following skills and experience:

  • Well organised and can juggle multiple tasks
  • Work methodically and can plan and meet deadlines
  • Contribute to health & safety such as managing hazards providing updates at meetings
  • Experience processing invoices for finance
  • Conduct regular checks of the building and notify contractors to arrange any maintenance or repairs
  • Ensure supplies such as cleaning products and kitchen supplies
  • Intermediate knowledge and experience working with word and excel

In return you will be joining a close knit team who have a relaxed fun but professional approach who work collaboratively to achieve desired results.  Additionally, you will be joining an iconic and stable organisation which is empathetic and caring for each other as well as the community.

If you are passionate about contributing to making a real difference to those in need, please apply.
