We have a new exciting opportunity, not to be missed! At DEBRA we are currently looking for a Team Assistant to join our team based in Crowthorne.

DEBRA is the national charity that supports individuals and families affected by Epidermolysis Bullosa (EB) – a genetic condition which causes the skin to blister and shear at the slightest friction or even spontaneously. We have a vision of a world where no one suffers from this painful condition.

About the Team Assistant role

DEBRA has a portfolio of almost 130 charity shops selling donated goods. Many of the donors of those goods sign up to the Retail Gift Aid Scheme which is a major source of additional income for DEBRA. Retail data, both financial and relating to donor details, is recorded on databases in the Crowthorne Head Office. This post involves carrying out administrative tasks necessary for supplying and supporting provision of the tills in the shops and contributes to maintaining senior management confidence in the accuracy of the retail sales and retail gift aid databases.

Key Responsibilities of our Team Assistant will include:

- To ensure DEBRA shops have the correct till and card processing hardware in place to operate efficiently;

- To support DEBRA shops in use of the tills;

- To ensure all data stored on the retail sales database is correct, particularly data related to the Retail Gift Aid Scheme;

- To assist with the Retail Gift Aid Scheme claim to HMRC.

What we’re looking for in our Team Assistant
