York CVS Support Assistant (1 post)

Fixed term for 12 months initially

York CVS supports and champions York’s voluntary, community and social enterprise (VCSE) sector to make positive change, challenge issues and grow new ideas to strengthen communities. We have a busy Conference Centre and meeting rooms on Micklegate in the Centre of York called The Priory Street Centre which is available to book 7 days a week.

To meet our changing needs following the Covid19 pandemic, we are looking for a Support Assistant to support the running of the Priory Street Centre.

We are particularly interested in candidates who have excellent IT skills as you will need to be able to set up AV/IT equipment, help our customers with technical support, manage the room booking system and set up virtual meetings such as Zoom and Teams.

The successful applicant will support the Priory Street Centre by preparing and delivering refreshments when required, setting up meeting rooms (moving furniture such as desks and chairs), engage with our customers helpfully and confidently and help out on our reception desk when needed.

You will also be required to support the wider York CVS team with tasks such as minute taking, preparing documents, research, updating and creating excel spreadsheets.

To join our team you will have excellent administrative skills, be confident in setting up and using IT/AV equipment, be willing to get involved in lots of different projects, have the ability to build relationships quickly and positively with a diverse range of people including vulnerable adults.

The successful applicant will need to hit the ground running, be able to work independently, be personable and have a proactive positive approach. Finally, you must be flexible with the hours you are able to work as the buildings are open both evenings and weekends.

Closing date: 22 January 2021

Interviews will take place on Zoom on Thursday 28th January.
