A job and person description can be viewed here.

The job is part-time and permanent, with the potential to increase in hours. We are open to considering flexible working models. Depending where you’re based, you can choose to work 100% from home, at our office in Surrey (when Covid restrictions allow) or a mixture of both if you prefer. You will find the work fast-paced, interesting and meaningful with lots of opportunity to learn new skills and get involved in different projects. We’ll supply all your IT and telecoms.

Weekly hours of work – Part-time, 20-25 hours pw, 5 days per week. There is the potential for increased working hours as the programme grows, but it’s not a requirement for the right candidate to be interested in additional working hours.

Salary – £25k pro-rata | Starting holiday – 30 days (including bank holidays) pro-rata/per annum.

You are: A first-class Administrator. You’ll have an excellent understanding of MS Office and the ability to quickly learn how to use other IT systems. Your keen eye for detail, great time management and ability to multi-task will make sure that you can work accurately and hit deadlines and your clear and confident communication skills mean you are comfortable dealing with people at all levels, both in writing and on the telephone.

We are: A small and friendly, hardworking, committed team. Fast Forward was developed together with apparel retailers in 2014 to address concerns of exploitative practices in UK fashion being undetected by existing social compliance audits. Proven as an effective methodology to uncover hidden exploitation and drive continuous improvement, this collaborative programme is operated by an ever-growing number of brands and retailers in a range of UK sectors.
