Executive Administrator


Overview The role of the executive administrator is to facilitate the administration and organisation of monthly trustee meetings, and to support the executive director with administrative duties on an ad hoc basis. Attendance at board meetings is not necessarily required as we hold these on a Saturday and recognise that the applicant may prefer a more flexible approach. As such minutes may be taken from video recordings. Specific responsibilities:

  1. To liaise with Executive Director on the submission of relevant reports that may be required
  2. To request agenda items and compile an agenda (with the Chair).
  3. To file and share all board papers 1 week prior to each meeting
  4. To take minutes from each board meeting & circulate within 1 week of receiving them
  5. To ensure the action register is kept up to date and, where possible, reminders are sent to the relevant parties one week prior to the next meeting
  6. To ensure meeting links are sent out, and room bookings made where meetings are being held in person
  7. To assist the Executive Director with administrative duties as requested on an occasional basis

Reporting structure: The post holder is directly responsible to the Trustees for the specific areas of responsibility listed above.

Out of pocket expenses: The post holder will be reimbursed for reasonable “out of pocket” expenses incurred in the fulfilment of the requirements of the post. These include postage costs, telephone calls, travel costs (please find a copy of the expenses policy in the Volunteer Google Drive).
