We’re looking for an admin assistant, ideally for the next four weeks, to work on I’m a Councillor, Get me out of Here!

You would be overseeing part of our (innovative! groundbreaking!) online event where teenagers talk to real live councillors. You can find out more about the event on the main website.

For the two weeks before the event your job would be general admin and basic tech support for councillors and teachers. You don’t need to be an IT geek for the tech support, it’s usually just talking people through the basics and there will be people here on hand if queries get more complex.

During the event your job would be hosting/moderating live chats, approving questions, checking the site for errors and inappropriate content and helping to run the site. It’s actually a lot of fun as the young people are sparky and funny and full of energy. And hey, promoting youth engagement is a good thing.

You should be bright, pick stuff up easily, ideally with an interest in young people and/or democracy. It would be great if you’ve got some experience of blogging and/or social media, but not essential. The site is all built on wordpress, so if you’ve used that the techy stuff will be pretty familiar. You’d be working from our offices in Bradford on Avon.

Might suit: A recent graduate, or someone with admin or office experience who’s between jobs and would like something a bit more interesting as a stopgap than working in a call centre.

Please send a CV and short covering letter ASAP (we’ll be making a decision in the next few days), telling us why you think we should employ you. Feel free to give me a ring to find out more about the job.

  • Pay: £7.50/hr
  • Based: Our offices in Bradford on Avon
  • Key skills:
  • Admin
