JOB: Project Co-ordinator

Midaye is looking for Project Co-ordinator.

The post holder will co-ordinate our service delivery across a range of projects, including health, well-being and information provision. You will be responsible for ensuring that our projects work effectively to deliver benefits to our clients, and that we report our successes to funders and others.

You will be a central part of our vibrant, committed staff team – supporting our work in the community with e.g. single mothers, people with disabilities, and those with long term health problems. We work with members of all BME communities for whom English is an additional language – Ethiopian, Somali, Sudanese, Eritrean, Iraqi and others. Our clients are usually refugees, and we help them become healthier, better educated and more informed about services. Our activities empower, advocate for and support the most disadvantaged and isolated members of our community.

Midaye, although still a small organisation (16 staff), has grown rapidly over the past 5 years – we have developed partnerships with local authorities, NHS Clinical Commissioning Groups, and other charities; become known for our innovative community work on FGM, chronic health, and educational underachievement; and become valued contributors to local, regional and national policy in our areas of work. At the same time, we have retained our deep community links with some of the most marginalised groups in London.

If you would like to join us in providing our crucial community services, you must demonstrate that you are highly organised and efficient, able to prioritise and manage your workload and can manage and empower a diverse staff team to provide services to our clients.

You will understand community organisations and be experienced in project management. You will have excellent interpersonal skills and be confident with IT systems.

In return, you will gain the satisfaction of knowing that your work is making a difference to disadvantaged communities in London. Your role will be a crucial one within Midaye, and the work you do keeping us organised and on track will be appreciated by staff, volunteers, trustees and clients alike. You will have the opportunity to grow in your role, and to gain experience in all parts of running a busy charity. You will be part of a warm, friendly staff team who work towards Midaye’s goals with commitment and good humour.
