Looking for a role where every day is different yet exciting? Lifeskills, an interactive safety education charity built as a realistic village, are looking to develop a driven apprentice. You’ll get involved in the administration, marketing, recruitment, and the running of the company.
Lifeskills has been developed to teach people how to deal with potentially difficult or dangerous situations, whilst in a safe environment. It’s a fantastic set-up and children love visiting!
(Start date – 30th August 2022)
You’ll be learning all about how to support these volunteers as well as general administration of the business. It’s a unique opportunity to work for a very worthwhile organisation and learn all about the charity sector.
You will learn:
- How to co-ordinate and support volunteers
- Advertising for and recruiting new volunteers
- Creating promotional material such as flyers
- Social media marketing
- Helping with enquiries by phone and email
- Working as part of a small team to ensure that the Lifeskills Centre runs smoothly
- When necessary, work alongside the team as a guide with small groups of children
During your apprenticeship, you will be studying towards your L3 Advanced Business Administrator Award, delivered by Professional Apprenticeships, who were voted the region’s best training provider and have achieved the highest Ofsted rating.
During this advanced apprenticeship, you will learn a vast range of knowledge, skills & behaviours, covering topics such as project management, systems & processes, business structures and so much more.
Lifeskills value their team highly and fully support development opportunities. They are looking for someone to develop the role and really make it their own. If you are proactive, love people and are motivated to learn, you can look forward to exciting progression opportunities following your apprenticeship.
Lifeskills is a totally unique working environment. The office is based within a realistic, interactive village, which is used to teach children and people with learning difficulties, skills to promote safety and independence.
Working with school groups means that every day is different, and it is always a joy to see how the children react to seeing the Centre. Their small office team offer a close knit and supportive working environment whilst daily interaction with the large team of volunteers provides a continually changing and sociable atmosphere.
Being part of a small team means that staff get involved in every part of the charity, which provides many opportunities to learn new skills outside of the basic job role. Both staff and volunteers are passionate about what they do, which results in a genuinely upbeat and positive environment. Lifeskills is in fantastic location, based at the Create Centre in Central Bristol, right on the waterfront and looking out over the beautiful Ashton Court. They have good bus and cycle links, and onsite parking is available if required.
