About The Open Door
We are a local charity promoting inclusion in South Edinburgh. We support vulnerable older people to have fun with friends, and remain as active and independent as possible, through our social clubs and registered day care services. We provide a welcoming space for people who may be feeling lonely or isolated to chat and linger over a hot drink or light lunch in our community cafe. We enable people of diverse ages, abilities and backgrounds to contribute to their local community through volunteering in our day care services, community café and other projects.
We are proud of our reputation for delivering high quality care and support services. We were awarded “Grade 5 – Very Good” for all categories in our last inspection by the Care Inspectorate.
We were founded in 1982 by a retired nurse, Peggy Hunter in conjunction with a number of local churches, and are well-supported by the community with over 50 individuals volunteering with The Open Door every fortnight.
Children 1st are Scotland’s National Children’s Charity. We help Scotland’s families to put children first, with practical advice and with support in difficult times. And when the worst happens, we support survivors of abuse, neglect, and other traumatic events in childhood, to recover.
We are looking for a confident, well-organised administrator to provide administrative support to the Fundraising Department.
You will be expected to process and acknowledge donations, maintain procedures, process direct debits, reconcile income, keep accurate records and become competent using our fundraising database as well as other general administrative duties.
We are looking for someone with meticulous attention to detail who is reliable, numerate and enjoys working as part of a team. You should be an organised administrator, confident in the use of databases, excel and word packages and have excellent verbal and written communication skills.
This is a fixed term, full time role of 35 hours a week, initially until 31 March 2020
