Education & Learning Administrator

Application deadline: 29/11/2021

Our Education & Learning (E&L) team works in London, the West Midlands, and Greater Manchester, equipping the next generation to engage confidently with the diverse world around them. Between April 2019 and March 2020, we engaged over 10,000 students across the country in our workshop and linking programmes. Although our in-person delivery fell drastically in 2020-21, due to the crisis in schools during COVID-19, we were able to remain flexible and support schools: and over 1000 teachers and schools accessed our lesson plans. In 2022 we are taking our newly developed online, and hybrid, delivery models to schools.

F&BF’s E&L team continue to be flexible, sensitive, and considerate to the evolving situation in schools, remaining in constant contact with teachers and educational advisors and keeping abreast of their needs. Consequently, with extra training, CPDs, recruitment windows, and regular communication and answering queries from teachers, the capacity of our team is stretched, while our administrative tasks have grown. The procurement of an Admin Assistant is pivotal in reaching and equipping more learners and increasing our voice all in line with the strategic outline of the charity.

To meet the administrative demands of our programming, we are creating the role of administrator within the E&L team. You will be expected to work three days per week, for 6 months, at a fixed fee of £100 per day. We cannot guarantee that there will be an offer of further employment after the completion of the duration of the initial contract. However, this contract is designed to increase the capacity of the E&L team, whilst we apply for funding to sustain the increased capacity.

This role involves…

  • Assisting with developing strong Excel documents, which present all relevant data for E&L clearly and in a unified way and relate clearly to our future Salesforce requirements.
  • Collecting, cleaning, processing, and storing data (including for monitoring and evaluation purposes, personal data, programme planning, etc.)
  • Keeping regular contact with school contacts and volunteer speakers: answering enquiries, booking meetings, sending links and information.

To do this you will need to…

  • Be inquisitive
  • Be good with data
  • Be organised
  • Be detail oriented
  • Work well in a team

You’ll be joining an organisation that embodies the inclusive and welcoming values we want to see in wider society. We pride ourselves on our diverse and collaborative working environment.

We believe in order to effectively serve our beneficiaries; our work must be influenced by a broad range of voices. Therefore, we actively encourage applications from people who are currently underrepresented in our staff team. This would include BAME candidates and those who identify as Muslim, Sikh, Hindu, Buddhist and Jain. We celebrate difference and are committed to creating a working environment where everyone is included.

Unfortunately, we cannot accept applications from individuals without the right to work in the UK.
