Administration Assistant - Part time, 30 hours per week, homeworking
Introduction to the TutorMate Programme
Are you keen to use your excellent organisational and problem-solving skills for the benefit of disadvantaged children? Do you get satisfaction from providing excellent customer service?
36% of children from disadvantaged backgrounds leave primary school in England each year unable to read to the expected standard. Innovations for Learning (IFL) is a charity focused on using technology to close this literacy gap through a unique online reading support programme called TutorMate. Many children fall behind with reading simply because they lack the opportunity to practice. TutorMate addresses this problem by using a bespoke internet platform to pair volunteer tutors from corporate organisations with struggling pupils.
This new role is an exciting opportunity for someone to contribute to the work of our fast-growing charity. You will work as part of the Tutor Support Team, ensuring that volunteers have everything that they need to make a success of their reading sessions with pupils.
Reporting to the Performance and Data Manager, you will work for 30 hours a week (Monday to Friday) and will need to be available for an 8:30 am start each morning. You will work remotely and will need to have access to a reliable internet connection.
This role is ideal for someone home-based who wishes to work part-time.

As a charity that values and celebrates people's diversity and champions opportunities for all young people, we are keen to receive applications from people who have experienced disadvantage and from those who are from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic communities who are currently underrepresented in the organisation. We believe that a diverse organisation is one that is more innovative, more creative and gets better results.
