C J Gallard's Almshouses

We have a part-time vacancy for a Clerk to the Trustees to work at an almshouse charity providing independent living for 25 elderly, local people of limited financial means in their own flats. Ideally we are seeking someone who lives locally as occasionally they may have to respond to emergencies at the flats.

We are looking for someone who:

  • is computer literate
  • has good people skills
  • has experience of writing clear minutes
  • can manage the charity’s finances, and
  • has an understanding of dealing with property maintenance issues.

Someone who also has:

  • excellent organisational skills
  • the ability to juggle multiple tasks, and
  • an understanding of legislative matters relating to the running of a charity.

A flexible working pattern is offered, based on an average of 15 hours a week, which includes essential attendance at bi-monthly and occasional other trustees’ meetings, availability to answer queries from time to time and occasional attendance at the almshouses in emergency situations – particularly if the Manager is away or on holiday. You can work from home if you prefer, as long as you are available to attend the almshouses when required, or there is an office on site where you can work.

Pay according to skills and experience.

Will suit someone looking for rewarding part time work.

Training will be available as well as a handover period as required.

Applications via letter plus CV, including details of financial expectations as well as explaining motivation in applying to work for a charity, to The Chairman, C J Gallard’s Almshouses, 27 London Road, Southborough, Tunbridge Wells, Kent, TN4 0NB or by e-mail to chairman@gallards.co.uk
