KPA COORDINATOR

I work 3 days a week as the Association Coordinator, and I’m currently based at home.

I am employed by the charity on a permanent basis, which means I can provide some continuity and organisational memory, as all the elected Officers are only in their roles for one or two years. I started at the KPA in July 2016 and love my job!

I started my career as a social worker and have also worked with many charities and community groups in a supportive capacity over the years.

My role at the KPA is to provide admin and financial support to the team. I look after the finances of the Association (the Clubhouse finances are separate), deal with administrative issues (e.g. organising meetings, taking minutes) and also oversee the KPA Bursary Scheme. I also provide support to the President in developing policies and procedures, dealing with day-to-day issues, reporting to the Charity Commission and generally making sure the charity runs smoothly.

My usual working days are Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. Contact me if you have a general enquiry and I will put you in touch with the right person in the team. I also deal with any queries you may have about the Bursary Scheme. If you have a question about the Bursary: kpa.bursary@keele.ac.uk
