We’re hiring! Management team members (voluntary)

We are now recruiting for our management team. This is a volunteer team that will support the board and Founding Director (also a volunteer) and carry out the purposes of the charity.

What is it?

The management team will be made up of 4-5 individuals who will each be involved in a different aspect of the charity. The roles will overlap so that there is always cover for the various required tasks. Tasks include (but are not limited to):

  • Managing our membership scheme by onboarding new members
  • Managing and engaging with our WhatsApp groups
  • Responding to website and phone enquiries
  • Organising and running events
  • Supporting the delivery of our parent courses and workshops
  • Attending events as BAS representatives
  • Marketing the charity, both to parent/carers and other Bristol organisations, businesses, etc.
  • Assisting with fundraising
  • Managing our Facebook presence
  • Managing parent support volunteers
  • Bookkeeping, managing our monthly cash book
  • Feeding back to the board ideas on ways to improve and expand our services and processes

Person specification:

  • Strong administrative skills – familiarity with Microsoft Office or equivalent
  • Good communication skills
  • Able to work as part of a team
  • A collaborative approach to work
  • Able to manage own time and workload while lone working
  • A suitable home office set up
  • An interest in being a part of a growing, dynamic organisation
  • Experience of working for a charity would be a plus

Time requirement

It is expected that management team members will work at least 1-2 hours per week term-time, and potentially a few hours, if possible, during school holidays (for example we may have a family event during a school holiday). The work is very flexible.

We hope to have this team in place for a September start.

A very important team!

This team will make a huge difference to our stakeholders by providing an efficient, streamlined administrative service. The members of this team will work together and support each other alongside the Founding Director.

At present, this team will work from home, keeping in touch via online meetings, chatting, etc. We envision that this will be a sociable group, and that despite working remotely, the members will be well-connected and very regularly in contact.


The benefits of volunteering with BAS are many. Members of this team will learn new skills as well as ways to help the autistic children in their lives. After 6 months of service, team members will be eligible for training in an autism-related area. Team members will also be eligible to earn NVQs, using their work with BAS as evidence towards their qualification.

Volunteering makes you feel good! Knowing you are making a difference to a great number of people is very rewarding. Working as part of a tight knit team may improve self esteem and confidence and help reduce isolation.
