This is a really exciting time to join Girlguiding. We have much to be proud of in our one hundred years of history, but we know that to remain vibrant and relevant to young people we must continually evolve.

We have begun a process of significant change: transforming the organisation so it can meet the challenges of the future by putting young people at the heart of our organisation. We are on a mission to amplify the voices of girls and young women, so they can champion change in their own lives and the wider world; to build strong partnerships that can increase our reach and impact; and to increase the support we offer our amazing adult volunteers who deliver incredible experiences to young people across the UK every week.

We have an exciting opportunity available to join a fun and vibrant team at Foxlease!

We are looking for a friendly, professional, and motivated individual to join our front office team delivering exceptional experiences to our guests. You’ll coordinate and programme events for the Activity Centre in collaboration with the front office manager, planning and administering the events by responding to all enquiries, taking bookings, preparing all event administration, and completing any booking administration.

You’ll be the first point of contact for our volunteers, providing efficient support to the volunteer programme to increase our volunteer base at our Centre.

No two days will be the same -the only guarantee is a fun, exciting, busy, and proactive working environment!

Please note that we are a 7-day operation so weekend and evening work will be required, on a rota basis.

Girlguiding values the differences that a diverse workforce brings and is committed to inclusivity, and to employing and supporting a diverse workforce. Girlguiding is proud to be part of the Stonewall Diversity Champions programme, a member of the Business Disability Forum, and a member of Time to Change. While Girlguiding’s young members may be women only, our staff team is mixed gender. We welcome applicants from all backgrounds.

We’re committed to supporting our staff to achieve a good work-life balance and offer flexible working options wherever we reasonably can. All staff are required to carry out our online health and safety training and complete a DSE risk assessment to ensure we can provide the support you require.
