Vacancy at the Basement Project

We have a vacancy for a part time Assistant to the Operations Manager. In the first instance this will be a temporary position and will run for 3 months, but the contract may be extended if both parties agree. The need for the position has arisen due to extra work the Operations Manager is undertaking regarding future planning strategies of The Basement Project, and so the Board of Trustees have agreed to provide her with a general assistant for approx. 15 hours per week to carry out any tasks that she would normally do but that could be carried out by an assistant. Please see the attached job description for a summary of the role.  Job Spec – Assistant to Operations Manager

There may also be the need for the successful candidate to take clients to appointments when necessary and appropriate – for which normal expenses will be paid. Therefore access to a vehicle would be highly desirable but not essential. The ideal candidate will be flexible in their attitude to what they are requested to do and will also be sympathetic to the aims and objectives of the project.

The actual hours of work can be agreed with the Operations Manager by the successful applicant, but preferably the assistant will be in situ for at least 4 days a week. Wages will be based around the current living wage (£7.65 outside of London), depending upon experience.

Closing Date for applications is Friday November 29th at 5 pm and applicants should initially contact the undersigned by email to advise of their interest in the role. Interviews will then be arranged as appropriate. Potential applicants can also contact the undersigned by email if they have questions about the role.
