Job Description - EXPIRED

Noah's Ark Children's Hospice is a community based hospice service providing support for children and young people with life-limiting or life-threatening conditions and their families in the North London boroughs of Barnet, Camden, Enfield, Haringey and Islington.

Purpose of role:

At Noah’s Ark we often need help with a variety of administration tasks. If you would like to support us with admin on either a regular or occasional basis then please do get in touch.  We would ideally like a volunteer to commit to supporting us in this role for a minimum of 6 months, but this can be flexible.

Specific administration roles are also available, and these are advertised in our weekly update email sent to all registered volunteers. 

Opportunities of the role:

  • Gain experience working in an office environment
  • Build confidence to complete tasks independently
  • Develop research and organisational skills 

Main activities/tasks:

Tasks will vary, depending on the specific administration role. However, examples of support needed will include:

  • Help with office administration, usually using a PC
  • Answering the phone
  • Carrying out research
  • Large mail outs
  • Counting money
  • Inputting information on to our database

Qualities/experience/skills needed:

  • Computer/internet skills necessary for most administration roles
  • Friendly, enthusiastic with good communication skills
  • Previous experience of working within an admin environment is preferable
  • A commitment to abiding by all data protection and confidentiality policies within Noah’s Ark


At Noah’s Ark we value volunteer support, but we are also aware that not all roles are suitable for everyone.  The interview and training process is in place to ensure that the Noah’s Ark staff get to know more about you, to ensure that you are given the correct training for the role and so that you can find out if this is a role you would like to undertake.  The training process is as follows:

  • Attend a Volunteer Induction (all potential volunteers have to attend one of these sessions before they are able to get involved in any capacity)
  • Attend an informal interview (if successful at this stage the volunteer would then be invited to join the next training programme)
  • Relevant training will be given during first shift
