Job Description

The organisation

Liberty is one of the leading human rights organisations in the UK, aiming to protect civil liberties and promote human rights for everyone. We work in a variety of areas, including political campaigning, public awareness, test case litigation, and fundraising.

The types of task we need you to do are:

  • Cover the reception area in Liberty’s office, helping to manage the switchboard and deal with visitors, suppliers etc
  • Manage outgoing post
  • Record and manage information and data entry
  • Help to maintain a tidy and safe working environment
  • Other administrative support across Operations, Development and other teams as needed

The person

We want to recruit motivated and enthusiastic volunteers who are interested in the issues that Liberty deals with and who are keen to gain valuable experience within a well known civil liberties and human rights NGO. The characteristics we are looking for are:

  • Hard working, reliable and committed to Liberty’s aims
  • Good written and verbal communication skills
  • Computer literate with a good working knowledge of Microsoft Office
  • Appreciation of diversity and respect for others
  • Ability to work on own initiative
  • Ability to be discreet and maintain confidentiality
  • Accuracy and attention to detail
  • Effective teamwork and commitment to providing a quality service

The commitment

We are looking for volunteers to be available for one fixed day a week, for a period of 3 months, starting from the week beginning Monday 17th April 2017.

We will cover volunteers’ travel costs to and from the office (up to the cost of a day travel card for London zones 1-6), and a lunch allowance of £5.
