Safer London is looking for an Office and Governance Coordinator to join our Pan London team

Location: London Southwark

Contract: Permanent, subject to funding 

Hours: 32 hours per week worked over 4 days

Starting salary: £27,445

We have an exciting opportunity for a motivated and experienced individual to join our dedicated support team. As Safer London enters a dynamic new stage of development we are looking for someone to ensure our office runs smoothly and to support our Board of Trustees as they oversee our work helping to improve the lives of young Londoners. 

Are you familiar with the environment in which youth charities operate? Are you committed to social justice, equity, and inclusion? Are you motivated to provide an agile, responsive support service across the office and governance functions of the organisation? If yes, then you could be who we are looking for.

Who we are:

Safer London is a charity working with young Londoners and families who are affected by violence and exploitation. We believe that when a child or young person comes to us they are just that – a child or a young person: we don’t define them by the issue that has brought them to us. By working alongside young Londoners, their families, and peers in the places where they spend their time, we can create a safer London not just for them but for everyone.

About the role:  

As the Office and Governance Coordinator, you will be responsible for:

  • Ensuring the smooth running of our office in Southwark, SE London, including opening the office up in the morning, maintaining stationery supplies and keeping up to date records of all of our devices and to whom these have been issued.
  • Booking meeting rooms for a range of meetings and checking bookings against invoices.
  • Booking cabs and couriers and checking bookings against invoices.
  • Preparing Board meetings, including booking meeting rooms as needed and organising refreshments, drafting the agendas, collating meeting papers and producing accurate minutes of the meetings. 

Please see attached Job Pack for further details.

What we offer:  

Safer London continually reviews its pay and offers a competitive benefits package to all employees, including the following benefits:

  • 4-day/32-hour work week from April 1st, 2024, with no impact on pay. This means that you will have a regular day off in the week with no impact on your pay.
  • Flexible Working: our Flexible Working Policy allows requests to work flexibly from the start of your employment
  • New modern offices with a range of facilities to support tenants’ well-being
  • A contributory Pension Scheme 
  • Enhanced family leave
  • Interest-free Season Ticket Loans
  • Cycle to Work Scheme
  • Free access to a confidential 24/7 helpline service with a specialist range of support and information
  • Death in Service Benefit
  • Opportunities to develop and progress your career, including an extensive programme of learning courses
  • Initial Annual Leave allowance of 28 days holiday, rising to 30 days after 3 years and 33 days after 5 years, plus bank holidays and other statutory holidays; part time employees receive a pro-rata entitlement. [NB: From April 1st the annual leave benefit will be pro rata in line with a 32-hour working week].  

Additional Information:

Safer London is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people, and we expect anyone who works and volunteers with us to share this commitment. As part of this commitment, we will request a DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service) check, as well as references covering the last five years, for the successful candidates. 

We encourage people from all sections of our community to apply for jobs with us. We particularly welcome disabled, male and LGBTQIA+ applicants because these communities are currently under-represented in our workforce. We know that in order to make London a safer place for the young people that live here we need a diverse range of perspectives, experience, and knowledge.
