Job Details

About Encompass
Encompass Trust was set up by the family of Daniel Braden, a young Brit who died in the 2002 Bali Bombings. Our mission is to create a network of people around the world, who will work together to overcome cultural and societal divisions, and transform conflict in their communities and beyond.

A large part of Encompass’ work focuses on bringing young people together from Palestine and Israel, to draw on their energy and their ability to transform the views of their generation, whilst making life altering changes to their and others’ future.

About the Role

Please be aware that as this is a new role, the activities are likely to evolve over time. We are therefore offering this position on an initial 6-month basis, with the view to reviewing it to determine how best to take it forward long-term.

Duties:

  • Maintain regular contact with the Ecompass Alumni and build relations with other young people
  • Maintain and update the Encompass website
  • Provide updates for Encompass supporters via social media, newsletters, blogs etc
  • Oversee the development of new projects and events, ensuring that they are in keeping with the mission of Encompass
  • Produce reports and updates for the trustees
  • Attend quarterly Trustee meetings
  • Liaise with external partners and stakeholders

Personal Specification

  • Experience of volunteering and/or of working in a charitable organisation (essential)
  • Excellent communications skills (essential)
  • Organised and able to work on own initiative with minimal supervision (essential)
  • Experience of coordinating volunteers (desirable)
