Would you like play a vital, hands-on role in the running of a small charity?

Are you highly organised and able to prioritise effectively, with excellent interpersonal skills and an energy and enthusiasm to make things happen?

Charity People are delighted to be partnering with The Migraine Trust, a small, ambitious charity which is dedicated to helping people affected by migraine, to bring on board an Office Administration Assistant.

The Migraine Trust is the only UK migraine charity providing information and support, campaigning for awareness and change, and funding and promoting research, and has been leading and bringing the migraine community together since 1965. One in seven people in the UK live with migraine. This complex and debilitating neurological disorder can significantly affect many aspects of life including work, school, personal relationships, and feelings of isolation.

Every year over two million people visit The Migraine Trust website for the most up to date information, and thousands contact the helplines for information and support on all aspects of migraine. The Migraine Trust campaign for increased awareness and understanding of migraine, better access to treatment, and national policy change to improve the lives of people who get it.

The Office Administration Assistant will support the smooth running of the office, offer administrative support to the Chief Executive, Senior Leadership Team, Board of Trustees and from time to time the wider team. The postholder will also support the Finance function.

Key responsibilities

• Office Management: Oversee the efficient operation of the office within a shared charity hub, including procurement of supplies, maintaining relationships with IT support contractors, and organising team meetings and events.
• Finance Assistance: Support the Head of Finance and Operations with data entry, invoice processing, and bank reconciliations, ensuring accuracy and compliance with financial procedures.
• Board and Executive Support: Collaborate with the Chair, CEO, and Senior Leadership Team to plan and organise trustee meetings, manage board papers, and provide administrative assistance as needed, including travel arrangements.
• HR Administration: Maintain HR records, support recruitment processes, and facilitate staff onboarding, ensuring compliance with HR policies and regulations. Additionally, assist with staff engagement surveys and GDPR compliance efforts.
• Administrative Support to British Association for the Study of Headache (BASH): From time to time, you will provide Finance/Admin support to this small charity which has close ties to The Migraine Trust.

The role involves handling of confidential information, engagement with external stakeholders and managing a varied workload. This is a diverse, hands-on role which requires professionalism, interpersonal skills, energy, and attention to detail. In addition, you will be highly organised and able to prioritise proactively, take ownership, and drive change to make things happen. The Migraine Trust are more interested in your potential than in a perfect career or education. They are keen to meet people who have a passion for the work that they do and have picked up strong organisational and communication skills as they have gone along.

The role is home-based with around 1 day a week in the office near Borough High Street. The role is 21 hours per week and ideally these hours would be done spread across at least three or four days a week, such as Monday, Wednesday and Friday, or Monday-Friday with shorter days, due to the nature of the role as sometimes things need doing urgently. The Migraine Trust are happy to explore different options for the working pattern for the right candidate. The post will be subject to satisfactory references.

If you would like to support the work of The Migraine Trust and the migraine community, you have the skills to apply for this role and would like to join a small passionate and dedicated team where you can make a real difference, we would be delighted to hear from you.
