What will you be doing?

A recently established charity, our vision is for everyone affected by Long Covid to have access to appropriate treatment and support. Established by people with lived experience of the condition, we want patients to be equal partners in all decisions about their health and welfare and to have equitable access to investigations, diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation. Through our networks, we will continue to ensure that a broad range of individuals and communities - within and beyond the UK - connect for support, to share information and perspectives, and have their rights and needs heard by decision makers. The Administrative Assistant would participate online in fortnightly meetings of the Operations Committee where they would take the Minutes and circulate to committee members. They will also schedule the online meetings and send out calendar invitations. The meetings will be held virtually so you are able to work from home. Joining Long Covid Support as a volunteer administrative assistant provides opportunities for those who wish to undertake activities which will benefit the community, and which will enhance a personal sense of achievement. As an administrative assistant, you will be organised and methodical, able to keep accurate records, have knowledge of Long Covid Supports Constitution and our volunteer code of conduct. Files will be kept electronically, available to the Operations Committee. You will work closely with the chairperson on a weekly basis. Time commitment will be assisting fortnightly meetings. These are currently held on Thursdays from 5 to 6.30pm. You may be asked to take Minutes for additional project meetings occasionally, amounting to an average of 2-3 hours admin/secretarial work per week.

What are we looking for?

● Able to work virtually from home. ● A good command of spoken and written English is vital. ● Experience of taking Minutes online plus arranging and recording meetings. ● Experience of working within a team of volunteers/self-help groups would be a bonus. ● Basic IT knowledge - sending emails, keeping records, formulating documents, taking Minutes of meetings. ● An enthusiasm for supporting and advancing the role of Long Covid Support

What difference will you make?

We owe it to our beneficiaries, the Charities Commission, and supporters to "keep our house in order". A good volunteer administrative assistant will enable Long Covid Support to maintain accurate records of meetings and developments to shape our work and strategic direction, as well as help us achieve our purpose advocating and supporting individuals with Long Covid and their families.
