About Us

The Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire (BNSSG) VCSE Alliance launched in January 2024. It aims to influence and facilitate greater collaboration between the regional health system (BNSSG Integrated Care System) and the Voluntary, Community and Social Enterprise Sector (VCSE). It seeks to do this by enhancing the role of the VCSE sector in the delivery and transformation of wellbeing and health, and cementing our sector’s role as a key strategic partner in the planning, design and delivery of health and care, in its widest possible definition.  

The co-design of a new ‘VCSE Brokerage Framework’ with colleagues from the Integrated Care Board (ICB) and System (ICS) is a key priority for the VCSE Alliance in 2024-25. The aim of the Brokerage Framework is to provide a clear, fair, inclusive and proportionate way for health and social care system partners to reach a diverse range of VCSE organisations. The intention is that will be a new process by which grants and opportunities can be distributed to the sector. 

This is a really exciting time to join the Alliance and support the delivery of a new innovative process which has the potential to be transformative for Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire.  

The Role

The VCSE Brokerage Administrator’s role is to support the further development, piloting and preparation for launch of the Brokerage Framework. The role will work closely with the soon to be recruited VCSE Brokerage Manager and the current VCSE Alliance team. Ensuring that we have a clear, efficient and effective administrative process for the Brokerage Framework will be fundamental to its success. 

About You

We’re looking for someone who has experience of working in an administrative role who can bring a high level of competency, efficiency and organisation. You’ll need to be able to work independently and use your own initiative at times, whilst being able to work with colleagues from multiple organisations. 

You are an organised individual with a successful track record administration and project support.  Your skills include: 

  • Ability to develop, and manage office systems, databases and processes  
  • Strong organisational and time management skills 
  • Ability to work on own initiative and organise own workload without supervision 
  • Ability to work with and maintain confidential data and information.  

Our Approach

We take a highly supportive, flexible approach to enabling people to excel within their roles, and to reach their full potential. Examples include: 

  • Flexible working - we encourage people to put in flexible working requests where this supports their needs; including caring duties, long-term health conditions or wellbeing. 
  • Hybrid working - 60% in the office or community venues and 40% work from home is typical for full-time staff. 
  • A core day in the office for all staff (Tuesday) to ensure that hybrid working works well, facilitating the quick conversations and team discussions that benefit from being face-to-face. The team also organise optional weekly team 'wellbeing' lunches to bring people together. 
  • We don't book any team meetings before 10am or after 4pm as we anticipate working around different people's flexible needs and we don't want you to miss out if you need a late start or an early finish. 
  • We aim to ensure that everyone can bring their whole selves to work with a workplace culture that embraces diversity and recognises the benefits of a diverse team for us all. 
  • We offer you a highly collaborative workplace with lots of discussion, knowledge-sharing, a collective approach to solution-finding and a shared sense of purpose.
