BIHR is working with CharityWorks to provide a Kickstart role for 6 months.

The new role is Digital Administration Assistant working 25 hours a week.

What is Kickstart

The Kickstart Scheme is a government programme that supports employers to create new jobs for 16 to 24 year olds on Universal Credit who are at risk of long term unemployment. BIHR is partnering with CharityWorks on the Kickstart Scheme to provide a job and development programme which can support the early careers of young people on Universal Credit.

The new role is with BIHR, and alongside this CharityWorks provides a development programme to support trainees' long term employability. This support includes peer coaching, facilitated learning sessions on careers and employability, management of self and others, and broad national conferences building context, networks and connections

About the role

This is an exciting new role which will provide administration support for a new project to develop our websites. This will include mapping BIHR’s current website to create a full picture of our current content, the connections between different areas of this website and our other websites (which provide tools for people on using human rights in everyday life). This includes looking at historical and current content, helping with recommendations for change in both the content, design and the functions of the website, and supporting the development of our main website. The development phase will include working with an agency/consultant and supporting user-testing. There will also likely be other general administrative tasks, supporting the Operations Coordinator, including temporary fixes for current website issues and responding to website queries.

The successful candidate will have the opportunity to gain digital skills, experience of working within a small UK-wide charity, and the opportunity to be part of a friendly, dynamic team. The position, as with all BIHR roles, is remote, working from home. Equipment and homeworking set up is provided. This means this role is open to anyone, irrespective of location.
