• Home based
  • 8 to 14 hours per week
  • £120 day rate (negotiable, dependant on your experience level)
  • Project running December - February, with potential to extend.
  • Recruiting ASAP for a start date as soon as possible

Are you passionate about helping people to do great things?
Do you enjoy seeing projects through from start to finish? 
Do you get a kick out of a well managed spreadsheet?

With lots of additional support events and communications planned in over winter, we're looking for a smart Project Manager to support our team 1-1.5 days a week to help deliver the programme. 

You will be the logistical and project management support for our Winter Support Programme, running from December to the end of February (with potential to extend.)

Our Winter Support Programme for people with aplastic anaemia is designed to help people facing a difficult winter as they contend with shielding and treatment. It includes:

  • A series of newsletters and other communications
  • A programme of uplifting online events designed to support people's wellbeing
  • Befriending volunteer phone calls and outreach activity to members of our community who are at risk of feeling isolated and who might not have access to our online services.

You will be a meticulously organised Project Manager who is great at setting deadlines, making plans and getting things done. You'll work with our expert patient support team to deliver a programme that is already designed and planned, but needs someone to oversee delivery. 

Core responsibilities:

  • Set up and facilitate team meetings (online)
  • Plan out the work, and hold people to deadlines
  • Manage internal resources and third parties for the flawless execution of the organisation and its projects
  • Work with the support and outreach team to ensure the project is delivered on time, within scope and within budget
  • Ensure that activity across The AAT is coordinated and aligned
  • Manage project critical path
  • Create and maintain project documents
  • Report regularly to the directors on progress
  • You may support the team with occasional digital production tasks - eg updating and creating online event listings and reminder emails 

This role could be a good fit for someone with professional experience of event and/or project management looking for freelance experience. You will be:

  • Meticulously organised
  • Someone who enjoys putting together a well formatted event plan
  • Confident in setting deadlines and holding people accountable, whatever their level of seniority
  • Excellent communication and relationship management skills
  • Able to drive forward work on your own initiative
  • Able to motivate and enthuse others
  • A positive problem-solver who adapts well to challenges
  • A digital native who is not phased by using new programmes and is very comfortable with video calls and shared documents etc.

You'll be working with our internal experts to deliver the programme, so knowledge of aplastic anaemia or experience with patient support projects specifically is not required. It will be an advantage if you have some understanding of how a small UK health charity operates.
