*Fulfil a selection of administrative tasks using Microsoft Office
*Support the HTM in the smooth running of the office, keeping on top of filing, fielding calls when the HTM is in meetings and managing her diary

*Well organised and efficient
*Computer literate
*Ability to collate data and produce spread sheets
*Good written and verbal skills

Times and Commitment:
This is a voluntary position for someone who can give consistent support on a weekly basis. Flexible hours are possible - from a few hours a week to as full time as you would like it to be. This could be an opportunity to brush up on your skills within a busy and friendly office.

Your contribution will be greatly appreciated and will make a real impact on the work of Chickenshed.
