Administrator (maternity cover)
About the Joseph Levy Foundation:
JLF is a small, independent grant-making charity. We make grants to support a range of charitable causes – including grants to individuals and charitable organisations in the UK and Israel. We award a total of around £500,000 in new grants each year and we are currently focussing our support on a small number of topics including Autism and Cystic Fibrosis.
We are based close to Edgware Road tube station and we share our offices with one of the charities that we support – the Cystic Fibrosis Holiday Fund. We have just completed a programme of modernisation which has included moving to a new IT system (Office 365 in the Cloud) and a new grants database (Salesforce for Grantmakers).
Our work is overseen by a Board of Trustees and we have a small staff team of 3 – including the post of Administrator who will be going on maternity leave in the New Year. We are therefore looking to recruit someone on a fixed term contract to provide administrative support to the Foundation during the maternity leave period.
About the role of Administrator:
A key part of a small team, the Administrator supports colleagues by ensuring the smooth running of the Foundation’s office and often being the first point of contact for visitors and callers.
The Administrator role is varied and has regular contact with external and internal stakeholders. The successful candidate will provide outstanding customer service and be able to prioritise their workload effectively. We are looking for someone who has experience in an admin role and who is used to working in a small team. You will need to have a good knowledge of office systems and strong IT skills as well as good organisational skills and excellent attention to detail.
The Administrator also has responsibility for administering a small grants programme (the Joseph Levy Education Fund) which makes grants to assist people with Cystic Fibrosis with education and training opportunities.
Ideally, we would like to appoint someone with experience of book-keeping and using SAGE50 – but this is not essential.
The role will provide an opportunity to learn about grant-making and might suit someone interested in moving on to a full-time grant-making role elsewhere in future.
The position will be on a fixed-term contract for a period of 11 months – beginning in mid-February 2019.
