Thank you for your interest in working with The Separated Child Foundation. We are currently recruiting for the following positions:-

Logistics Coordinator (packs project)

Thank you for your interest in working for The Separated Child Foundation. The Logistics Coordinator (packs project) is a key role within the organisation, ensuring that separated children receive the physical comfort and welcome they need after they’ve arrived in the UK.

The Logistics Coordinator is a new role, created to enable the continued success and development of our well-established packs project.

Reporting to the Project Manager, you will be responsible for the day-to-day logistics at our project base near Staples Corner in North West London. Your responsibilities will include supporting the procurement process by receiving and unpacking deliveries, updating the inventory and organising stock, and liaising directly with partners to organise collections. You will be expected to maintain high standards of tidiness and cleanliness in the packing room and storage rooms. We will also ask you to facilitate fortnightly prepping sessions on a weekday morning or afternoon, working closely with project volunteers to prepare for the weekend packing sessions (which are led by senior volunteers).

The project is based at the Big Yellow Self Storage near Staples Corner in North West London. Your presence here will be required two or three times a week depending on the expected levels of deliveries and collections. The timing of other tasks (e.g. prepping sessions, organisation of storage rooms etc) will be agreed in advance with the Project Manager. Other than the prepping sessions we do not envisage set hours for this role, although access to the Big Yellow Self Storage must be limited to their official opening hours, for health and safety reasons.

Hours – 7 hours a week (working pattern will be flexible and occasional weekend working may be required)

Salary – £24,054 FTE

Volunteers for our packing project

Volunteers play a vital role in the delivery of our packing project, preparing packs that will be distributed to unaccompanied child refugees around the UK. Every two weeks, a team meets at the Big Yellow at Staples Corner to create arrival packs and sleep packs, giving dignity and comfort to separated children after their traumatic experiences. We have seen unprecedented demand for packs over the past year and only expect the need to increase.

We would love to hear from potential packing volunteers and Pack Leaders. To find out more about these roles, please visit our volunteering page.
