Join our Team
Spinal Injuries Association (SIA)’s vision is a fulfilled life for all people affected by spinal cord injury. Spinal cord injured people are at the heart of everything we do – as Trustees, staff, volunteers, members and service users. For more than 45 years, we have empowered spinal cord injured people to rebuild their lives through the provision of essential information, advocacy and support. During the coronavirus pandemic, SIA has been a beacon of light for the 50,000 spinal cord injured people in the UK who are living day-to-day with paralysis, incontinence and a high risk of life-threatening conditions. With determination, flexibility and creativity we are responding to a significant increase in demand for our services.
We’re looking for someone to join our evolving and dynamic Health & Care Quality (HCQ) Team, supporting them to continue to deliver high impact services.
The HCQ team currently consists of 4 SCI Specialist Nurses, a counsellor, and an SIA Academy Coordinator. We deliver clinical advice and support to SCI people, their families and health care professionals. We also deliver a comprehensive educational programme via the SIA Academy.
We need a master multi-tasker with excellent communication and IT skills and an upbeat attitude. The successful candidate will be able to assist the Health & Care Quality team by handling office tasks, inputting data and running reports, gathering feedback on the impact of SIA services, helping facilitate online training, providing polite and professional assistance via phone, mail, and e-mail, and generally being a helpful and positive presence in the workplace. The Assistant will provide administration support as part of the Health & Quality Care Team in a timely and professional manner and will assist with the important day-to-day operational arrangements.
If you are the sort of person who doesn’t want your working days to pass without making a difference, then you have come to the right place. We need someone who doesn’t hesitate to pitch in when things need to get done, someone who takes great satisfaction in accuracy, is passionate about environmental sustainability and who is committed to equality, diversity and inclusion.
Our ideal candidate will have:
- at least two years’ experience of office administration,
- excellent communication skills,
- be familiar with data entry and IT reporting,
- a desire and ability to work with a wide range of people,
- the capacity to multi-task.
If this is you, please get in touch.
