Administrative Assistant

 

Designability

 

Location: Bath (with some remote working available)

 

Full time, Fixed Term for 6 months

 

£19,500 per annum

 

Designability is an independent charity that enables disabled people to live with greater independence. Our expertise is in user-centred design, creating products with and for disabled people to improve and enrich their lives.

 

This is an exciting opportunity to be part of a team that develops new products and provides innovative services which deliver greater choice for disabled people. We are a creative and inspiring team, operating with the freedom to explore and deliver exciting new ways of working, beyond statutory provision.

 

We are best known now for Wizzybug, our powered wheelchair which helps very young disabled children move and play independently for often the first time in their lives. Families loan one from us free of charge thanks to the generous support of our donors.

 

We are seeking an Administrative Assistant to play a vital role in the day to day running of the Wizzybug Loan Scheme. The scheme loans powered wheelchairs across the UK to children aged between 14 months and 5 years.

 

You will have:

·        Experience within a similar administrative role and strong IT skills

·        Excellent communication skills and will understand the importance of being a team player

·        A strong attention to detail, be highly organised and focused

·        Desire to make a difference to disabled children’s lives

 

We are really proud that we were recently awarded second place in the ‘Best Charities to Work For 2020’ list by Third Sector which is a reflection of our team highly rating the fact that we encourage activities that create strong teams and foster good personal relationships. Our staff also stated their confidence in Designability’s leadership and strategic planning.
