Provide area team administrative support.
Area secretaries are an invaluable part of our team. They provide administrative support to our area coordinators and teams, organising and minuting area meetings. They're also an important link in how we evidence the impact of Shannon Trust, prompting and following-up data and monthly reports from our prison volunteers.
You don't need any formal qualifications to become an area secretary. We're looking for people who are:
Area secretaries typically give around 14 hours a month to volunteering with us which is spread across a number of days. Much of the role can take place on any day of the week and in the evenings but you will need to be able to attend a daytime area meeting 4 times a year, attend our Induction training and come along to our yearly area secretaries meeting.
You'll attend both of our Induction training sessions which will introduce you to Shannon Trust and how we work. You'll also have a separate introductory session with your area coordinators. We bring our area secretaries together once a year; it's chance to share what's working well, talk through new developments and recap on training.
You'll be able to claim back all reasonable expenses and be covered by our public liability insurance. If you use your own vehicle for Shannon Trust related activity, you'll need to check that you have the correct insurance cover.
