About the role

You will be responsible for helping the Director look after our Client Portfolio. While working here you will have the chance to learn new skills and will be able to help us shape the way we work. You may also offer guidance to one of our students from time to time too. Anyone who wishes to grow and develop with the organisation, and support others to do the same, will love this role.

Tasks are very varied. There is never a boring day in the office! You will therefore need to be proactive and a good multi-tasker as there will be times when we will be running up against a number of deadlines at the same time.

Typical tasks include:

  • Diary Management (which might include scheduling international meetings)
  • Entering data into accounting software or CRMs
  • Scheduling posts for Client Social Media Accounts
  • Website Updates (either to install security updates or to upload content)
  • Telephone answering (incoming general enquiries mostly).

Full training provided (including First Aid training).

Free parking is available on site.

About Time Gained

Time Gained CIC launched in September 2021. Our vision is of a world in which everyone may reach their potential and live fulfilled and well-balanced lives. As well as delivering excellent VA (Virtual Assistant) and Concierge services to our paying clients, we also provide supported training for a rolling intake of students (individuals who have been long-term unemployed – whatever the reason for this). In conjunction with our partner charity, Graft Thames Valley, our students experience the satisfaction of a job well done by carrying out tasks for our clients through our supported work experience and supported employment schemes.

Our clients, all of whom contact us because they have too much on their to-do lists, are from many different walks of life and working in a number of different sectors. That means that we get to meet many interesting people.
