Admin assistant for Almshouse project

The Almshouses in Abbey Lane, Saffron Walden, house people of all ages who have limited means. We are hoping to increase the number of residents by adding to the 47 homes already on the site, some of which are listed. 

As submission for Planning Approval approaches, our admin needs for the project are expanding. 

The charity is looking for a volunteer to work alongside trustees and officers, for up to 8 hours per week, on the following tasks.

• Undertake admin for the Building Project Team, the Communications Group and (potentially) a Fundraising initiative;

• This will include creating (with the chair) and distributing agendas, collating documents and minuting meetings;

• Attend meetings (currently at 6pm) approximately once a month;

• Grow the admin function as the project progresses and the needs expand.


A good knowledge of meeting administration and the use of IT are important.

Otherwise, being a team player and good communication skills, plus an interest in the Almshouses and the project, are the main requirements.
