Join our Team

SOFT UK is a small charity which supports families affected by the rare genetic conditions Trisomy 18 (Edwards’ syndrome) and Trisomy 13 (Patau’s syndrome).  We work with the NHS and in a range of multi-agency partnerships to raise the profile of Trisomy conditions, increase awareness of SOFT UK and its work and to provide training for healthcare professionals. 

We have recently successfully bid for grant funding to support the delivery of two key projects and we are looking for a temporary, part time Project Administrator to help us achieve that objective.
This is an exciting opportunity to join our Project Manager and a small team of dedicated Trustees and volunteers to do something special in helping our families.

We are seeking a highly motivated and organised individual in what is a varied, busy, but rewarding post for the right individual.

The successful applicant must have excellent IT skills, with a thorough knowledge of Microsoft Office packages, have excellent communication skills and be able to work under pressure. The post is a temporary position for 6 months in the first instance, possibly to be extended to 9 months. The hours are 12 hrs per week, to be worked via homeworking.

The primary duties of this role will be to support the Project Manager with the co-ordination of projects, and supporting the day-to-day operations of the charity. Attention to detail will be key in this role, and the ideal candidate should have the following attributes:
  • A self-starter, used to working with minimal direction and oversight. Previous experience of home working would be beneficial 
  • An effective communicator, used to dealing with a range of people, including Trustees, volunteers and families, and experience in a range of communication methods including social media
  • Used to delivering against deadlines and working under pressure, with a ‘can do’ attitude
  • An understanding of, or previous experience of the charitable, voluntary sector would be useful

We would encourage potential applicants to find out more via a telephone conversation with the Project Manager or Chair of Trustees.  Email to discuss or apply online through INDEED

Interviews for shortlisted candidates are expected to take place in May 2019
