Work with us!
Administration & Operations Assistant
We are looking for a pro-active, organised and enthusiastic individual to provide administrative support to the Staff, Board and Volunteers of Feeling Strong, and ensure the efficiency of Feeling Strong’s day-to-day operations. This is a living wage, part-time role (12 hours per week over three days) and fixed term for six months.
We would particularly welcome applications from candidates who are young people with lived experience of mental health and wellbeing challenges.
Feeling Strong is an exciting new Dundee-based charity with the ambition to improve the lives of young people living with mental health and wellbeing challenges by fostering the skills, confidence and aspirations they need to flourish. Our services are designed by young people, delivered by young people for the benefit of young people, and we believe that this youth-led/peer-led approach is our biggest asset in tackling issues around mental health and wellbeing. We promote stable recovery journeys for young people, and tackle the disparity they face in unemployment, underemployment and accessing opportunities like further and higher education.
We are a promising, high-momentum start-up, having secured further project funding to deliver a range of projects, services and campaigns on behalf of young people with mental health and wellbeing challenges in Dundee.
We're looking for the successful applicant to develop Feeling Strong's internal processes, keep our office running smoothly and support our Volunteers, Staff and Board in carrying out their responsibilities. Also, as a member of the Operations Team, you may be asked to help with the organisation of the charities' other activities on occasion. The Operations Team meet 12 times a year, for hour long meetings, rotating between the days of the week.
Work-related travel costs will be reimbursed.
Basic training and induction will be provided, and we expect the candidate to develop skills once in post, but we would particularly welcome candidates with basic skills in General IT, Bookkeeping, Volunteer Support, or Office Administration!
