Are you an organised, efficient and compassionate individual? If so, join St Giles Trust as Volunteer Admin Support and you will be embarking on a highly rewarding role that will make a significant difference to the lives of individuals who need support on their release from prison.

About St Giles Trust
A well-established charity that helps ex-offenders and disadvantaged people to move their lives forward, St. Giles Trust offers support to help people overcome any issues that might be holding them back and to prevent the likelihood of them reoffending on release. Often, this is provided by the people who know best how to help – those who have been there themselves.

About this exciting opportunity
Much of St Giles Trust’s work is focused on offering clients a ‘through the gates’ service on their release from prison, with the aim of helping individuals into housing and, subsequently, to prevent evictions. This work is carried out by housing caseworkers and, reporting to the Contract Manager, our highly motivated Volunteer Admin Support will support the caseworkers by carrying out essential admin-related tasks.

These will include inputting data onto – and the maintenance of – the client database, plus updating the in-form database. Offering occasional support with the completion of client paperwork and with file management are also key requirements of the role.

To make sure you don’t miss out, you must have:
• Excellent data entry, numerical and prioritisation skills, plus impressive attention to detail
• Strong IT skills, including Excel, Word and Outlook
• The ability to work independently and on your own initiative
• Strong communications skills, both verbal and written
• Awareness of client confidentiality/data protection
• A friendly, positive approach to team work
• Sympathy with the aims and ethos of St Giles as an organisation

In return you can expect your travel expenses reimbursed, luncheon vouchers, a discount scheme, a mentoring programme and a dedicated advice & counselling service.
