Job Vacancy: Thames Life Administrative Officer

At Thames Ward Community Project we believe that long term sustainable change is only possible when it is defined and led by local people, who initiate their own agenda and build it from within the local community.  Our vision is to be a catalyst for sustainable community-led change and our mission is to bring together schools, community groups and residents from across the Thames Ward of the London Borough of Barking and Dagenham to develop initiatives that will ensure residents have a strong voice and can influence change in the area.  To achieve better health outcomes and quality of life for residents and increase residents’ skills and job opportunities and improve the local environment.  We have established a resident-led Community Development Trust to develop this work.   

The administrative officer will support the director in day-to-day activities, including governance, monitoring and finance responsibilities and provide support for the development of the Thames Ward resident-led health outreach project.  The purpose of the project is to connect both local people and the local groups who are interested in improving the resilience, skills and health of their community by working with a resident trustee board, local community groups and wider statutory and private sector partners.   

The school is committed to safeguarding and protecting the welfare of children and as such all appointments are subject to an enhanced DBS check.  Appointments are also subject to satisfactory references/medical clearance.
