Finance & Administration Officer

  • Part time
  • £20,540 pro-rata
  • West Scotland
  • Closing 1st October 2021

The West of Scotland Deaf Children’s Society (WSDCS) is an affiliated charity of the National Deaf Children’s Society (NDCS). We are committed to creating a world without barriers for deaf children and young people. We are based in and work in the West of Scotland.

WSDCS is an established Scottish Charity committed to providing support to families with a deaf child in the West of Scotland. We have a long tradition of working in a positive way with families, keeping them at the centre of everything we do. We are an organisation led by a group of dedicated volunteers with direct experience of having a deaf child and committed to providing excellent support and services to families.

We are looking for an exceptional Finance & Administration Officer who can make a big difference to the lives of deaf children and their families in West Scotland. The focus of the role will be to ensure the smooth-running daily operations of the charity. The post holder will be tasked with supporting the organisation in a number of ways, such as internal and external communications, scheduling, bookkeeping, data entry/collation, funding applications and supporting the governance of the charity.

A key attribute of a great administrator is effective communication. Someone who will collaborate with colleagues, oversee the operations within the charity, communicate with committee members and support strategy and development. Any issues which arise around office resource or administrative points, they will more than likely take ownership of and deal with the situation.

They will also provide information and support to families and carers of deaf children and young people and support our wider programme of activities for local families with our dedicated team.

WSDCS works closely with NDCS and other professionals and organisations across sectors to provide the best possible support for families who have a deaf child. We work closely with NDCS to ensure a consistent and high-quality support and information is available and our family officers works to the same child centred principles and practice.
