Volunteer Administrator Role

Henna Asian Women’s Group are currently looking for an individual to take out admin duties and data entry.

Henna Asian Women’s Group is established as a company limited by guarantee and is registered as a charity. Henna Asian Women’s Group is a “grassroots” community based organisation that has been working with South Asian women and their families in London. Henna Asian Women’s Group is a members’ based organization in London formed 30 years ago by women originating from Asia to alleviate isolation but also to enjoy cultural and social occasions. Members are predominantly women from India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, and East Africa (of Asian descent).

We hope to expand this service to bring in more South Asian women of all ages groups and backgrounds. We have added health to our programme of activities with the goal of raising awareness and increasing physical and mental wellbeing of this client group. The majority of our services are free with a few that are highly subsidised.

This role will include the individual to take out monitoring protocols and then record all results within Henna’s database. This role will also include admin duties such as mail outs. The monitoring process will involve the individual accessing on-going services within the community centre, meeting the beneficiaries and taking out monitoring questionnaires.

Must be fluent in Hindi/Urdu to speak with beneficiaries and interpret when necessary but also have a good standard of spoken and written English. Sound admin skills or be willing to learn in order to:

 

                  Collect data through monitoring protocols

                  Support the Project Development Officer to collate and enter data within database

                  The ability to provide translations in Hindi/Urdu would be essential

                  The role requires a sympathetic friendly nature and excellent listening skills
