OUR ORGANISATION

The Transforming Autism Project is a brand-new charity focusing on very early intervention for children with autism with a view to making transformative life-long changes that would not be possible later. We challenge the traditional understanding of autism and propose an inspiring, hopeful and truly empowering perspective. For more details, see our TED talk.

We are planning a revolutionary new early intervention autism clinic based on Israel’s pioneering Mifne Centre (see one family’s story here), and also a comprehensive online Hub of resources and inspiration for parents and carers of autistic children.

To find out more about our goals, values and activities, please view our brochure.

Although we are currently new and very small, we will need to grow quickly in order to make progress towards our large-scale goals. We are therefore – through our wonderful volunteers - building a strong professional team so that we can put the infrastructure in place to have the scope to generate and cope with rapid growth.

ROLE PURPOSE

The Transforming Autism Project is a new charity focusing on providing developmental relationship-based early intervention for autistic children. We are currently at an early stage in our development, and are looking to launch our first Family Services later in 2020 (Covid-19 permitting) so that we can make a real difference to the lives of autistic children and their families. To support our volunteers who are driving various projects and work streams to enable our launch, we are now looking for a strong Human Resources Partner.

Ideally you will be able to support our volunteer team for 3-7 hours per week and key responsibilities will be:

•Supporting the on boarding and engagement of volunteers across the charity

•Supporting with the strategic direction of the Human Resources function, working with the leadership team to set a people strategy and working through implementation

•Reviewing, updating and writing people related policies and processes

We are looking for someone who has a strong background within HR, who understands the importance of a people strategy, but is also happy to take charge of operational HR related tasks. Our ethos is very much based on simplicity and prioritising effectively. This role will put you at the centre of our really exciting projects, and will be an important support in enabling the charity to achieve it’s vision.

KEY RESPONSIBILITIES

We already have a clear HR Strategy and we are looking for someone review, expand and execute this strategy. The key responsibilities will be supporting the HR Lead with the following:

•Ensuring we have the infrastructure to employee salaried employees

•Harnessing an environment where people feel valued, respected and supported and a culture based firmly on the charity’s values

•Creating and implementing a volunteer engagement and management plan

•Ensuring our employees and volunteers have clear guidelines on processes and policies.

•Implementing a people management programme

•Governance of the Legal and Charity requirements to ensure we comply with legal and ethical requirements.

PERSON SPECIFICATION

We are a strongly values-driven organisation, and are committed to manifesting our values in how we relate to each other, in what we are trying to achieve and in how we do it. Our values come under 3 core headings:
