Are you well-organised, with good admin skills, understanding of the issues facing vulnerable young people (i.e. involvement in gangs or knife crime) and a proven ability to work effectively with partners and line manage or supervise staff/volunteers? If so, St Giles Trust is looking for an Administrator & Coordinator to join our SOS+ team and play a vital part in ensuring the successful delivery of project outcomes and much more besides.

About St Giles

An ambitious, well-established charity that helps people facing adversity to find jobs, homes and the right support they need. Central to our ethos is our belief that people with first-hand experience of successfully overcoming
issues such as an offending background, homelessness, addictions and gang involvement, hold the key to positive change in others. 

Our award-winning SOS+ Service works with young people in a variety of settings by delivering sessions and workshops in schools, Pupil Referral Units (PRUs), Community Centres and to Youth Offender Teams. The service’s mission is to prevent children and young people becoming involved in gangs and youth violence by equipping them with tools, knowledge and support delivered by experts with lived experience.

About this vital role

Your challenge here will be to oversee several SOS+ projects across London and the South East region, including staff/volunteers and delivery outcomes.

You’ll also be the first point of contact for relevant funders and external stakeholders and often attend partnership meetings. Ensuring staff receive appropriate training to conduct their work and compile reports will be key.

Indeed, we’ll count on you to maintain the high standards of the service by
supporting staff, overseeing workloads and personal development plans, as well as providing coaching, advice, guidance, supervisions, and having daily contact with the frontline staff you manage. Providing a high-quality
administrative service comes with the territory too, as does liaising with partner agencies, schools, and funders, setting up virtual deliveries and webinars or booking travel and accommodation. In short, it’s an interesting and varied role that’s pivotal to the SOS+ project’s success.

What we are looking for:

  • Personal experience of the criminal justice system and/or experience of working within the Criminal Justice Sector plus a relevant qualification to a good standard - or working towards one
  • Project management experience, including coordinating activity and partnership work with key stakeholders to achieve agreed goals
  • A proven ability to coordinate bookings, manage calendars, book travel and accommodation and generally provide high quality customer service
  • Experience of providing support, advice and advocacy and communicating the needs of clients to other professionals in a high intensity environment
  • Experience of working with vulnerable young people and adults and knowledge of the issues faced by our client group.
  • A proactive and flexible approach, emotional resilience and a collaborative way of working.

In return, you can expect a competitive salary, generous leave allowance, staff pension, flexible working, a mentoring programme, an advice and counselling service, access to clinical supervisions, season ticket loan and
much more.
