Job Description

The glue that holds us together…

Impetus is an award-winning Brighton & Hove-based charity that provides befriending, advocacy and other support services to people who are isolated because of age, disability, poor mental or physical health. We have a small staff team and over 400 dedicated volunteers who provide over 12,000 hours of support in our city each year. Our staff and volunteers tell us they love that their role gives them the chance to make a difference to others.

We are looking for a highly organised, resilient and experienced office manager to help the organisation as a whole to run smoothly and effectively as we grow. Responsibilities include maintaining and developing our IT databases and a wide range of other administrative processes that support the work of Impetus; contributing to on-going improvements to office practices; and working with the Board of Trustees and Chief Executive to ensure that Impetus complies with relevant legal requirements, such as charity and company law.

You will be the linchpin of a very small central team, supported by office volunteers. You will know what makes a small charity tick, be comfortable juggling competing activities and ready to get stuck in to delivering day-to-day tasks in a fast paced, changing workplace. You are confident using MS office applications and other IT systems to organise and maintain both personal and business information in line with data protection and related requirements; and enjoy working co-operatively and productively with others to achieve business goals. Excellent communication skills, team working and commitment to equality and diversity are also essential.

This is a crucial role, which will give you a wide range of responsibility and plenty of room to develop and bring your own ideas to work – as well as the satisfaction of enabling Impetus to have a positive impact on the lives of thousands of people in Brighton and Hove.


28 hours a week, worked flexibly. Impetus operates a 35 hour full time working week.
