All Aboard Club runs play sessions and events for autistic and ADHD children, where they can develop their social and communication skills in a safe, understanding and supportive environment.
All Aboard Club was set up in 2018 by Richard Semmens, following his own autism and ADHD diagnoses. All Aboard Club now runs in 6 venues across London and the South East, and has supported over 500 families with children aged 4 to 18. These families often travel long distances to our events, knowing that their children will welcome our inclusive and non-judgemental approach. All Aboard Club staff have lived experience of autism and other neurodiverse conditions, so we understand the children’s challenges.
All Aboard Club is now looking for a part-time administrator to help with the running of the business. This role is funded by Access to Work and will be on a self-employed freelance contract basis, initially for 6 months.
We’re looking for someone to take care of the administration duties, in particular:
- Managing financial accounts: e.g. reconciling payments and invoices, chasing payments from customers
- Event administration: eg contacting our volunteers, communicating with venues
- [optional] Social media and email publicity: managing our extensive social media and email publicity campaign to families and autism support groups.
- [optional] Grant applications: supporting our grant application process, including researching available grants, managing the grant application process, and potentially writing draft grant applications
The Administrator will be working in a very dynamic and agile environment, so a pragmatic and flexible approach is required.
Skills required: The ideal candidate would have …
- Extensive administrative experience, ideally in a small business or charity environment.
- A proactive approach to administration, taking ownership of the processes
- Confidence to solve problems on their own or ask for help when needed.
- An understanding of neurodiversity (autism, ADHD etc)
- Proficiency in email, word-processing, Excel spreadsheets, and online systems such as Dropbox.
- [optional] Internet research skills to identify and apply for grants
- [optional] Experience in running social media campaigns across different platforms, eg Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and LinkedIn
Inclusivity: We welcome applications from neurodiverse people with relevant skills and experience. The business owner is autistic and has ADHD, and we will make every effort to adjust the recruitment process and working schedule to accommodate neurodiverse candidates.
Recruitment process: Please email your CV together with a covering letter (no more than 300 words) which explains how your experience matches the position. Your email should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you are short-listed for the post, we will invite you to a phone or Zoom call with the director, Richard Semmens, at a convenient time for you.
