We are currently looking for an office administrator who is also able to work with the office databases.

The combined post, working two or three days per week, is based at our office in central London (near Waterloo and London Bridge), and include the following responsibilities:

General office administration includes:

  • Monitoring and ordering suppliers.
  • Managing incoming and outgoing mail.
  • Dealing with office supply contracts.
  • Managing office maintenance.
  • Keeping staff records such as holiday and sickness logs.
  • Managing petty cash expenditure and record keeping in conjunction with the accounts department.
  • Checking and approving office supply invoices
  • Answering the phone and dealing with enquiries from service users as well as suppliers.
  • Maintaining our IT and Web registrations and renewals.
  • Tracking our subscriptions.
  • Some proof reading and copy typing.

HIV i-Base uses Filemaker Pro to maintain subscription and other information. Database management includes:

  • Processing orders for publications.
  • Printing labels and packing shipments.
  • Managing our shipping.
  • Liaison with printers and mail organisation.
  • Maintaining distribution information and producing reports from it.
  • Producing statistical information for our management and funders.

We believe that Filemaker Pro could do more for us but don’t know how to do it, if the candidate had experience with Filmmaker that would be a great bonus.

Experience with Word and Excel are essential. Some experience of Filemanker and InDesign would be useful as would experience with basic website maintenance.

An excellent command of English is essential. The successful candidate will have good language skills, be able to plan their own work but be flexible when required and be able to work with a diverse community of activists.

This is a part time post working two or three days per week. The salary is in the region of £18K to £21K, pro rata, depending on experience.
