Together for Short Lives is the UK charity to make sure the 99,000 seriously ill children and their families can make the most of every moment they have together – whether that’s for years, months or only hours. We work with families and the brilliant people and services that support them – in hospitals, in children’s hospices and in the community – to ensure that children and families get the support they need.

A fantastic opportunity has arisen to join our highly successful, passionate, and driven Practice Service and Development (PSD) Team, as an Administrative and Events Co-ordinator. A key part of this role is to provide quality administrative support across the PSD team and our Membership offer. A further element of the role is to lead the planning and delivery of our online and face to face events and meetings.

The post holder will ensure that we provide an excellent service to those across the children’s palliative care sector. They will play an important role in supporting our engagement with key stakeholders including families and professionals from statutory, charity and educational/research institutions and services.

About you
You will be passionate about providing quality administrative support for a variety of purposes that underpin delivery of our strategy to improve the lives of seriously ill children and their families.

You will have excellent IT skills and be able to work independently and as part of a team. You will have confidence to engage directly with key stakeholders and be an ambassador for Together for Short Lives.

Please note this role is office based but there will be the ability to work from home as the organisation supports hybrid working. There will also be the requirement to travel to locations across the UK throughout the year.

We are always looking for talented people and welcome people regardless of age, disability, gender identity, marital status, race, faith or belief and sexual orientation.

Together for Short Lives are open to discuss flexible working arrangements including job shares.
