Role Profile: Recruiter

The Transforming Autism Project is seeking a volunteer to join our team as a Recruiter.

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

Recruiters play a vital part in the success of the charity.

Recruiting volunteers allows the charity to grow and expand in various different areas and provide advice and services.

Our recruiters work on a variety of roles from entry level to director level, and work across different sectors including Marketing, Legal, IT and Fundraising to name a few.

How Many Hours?

This is flexible and can be discussed, however for a role such as this, our experience is that it requires at least 7 hours or so spread through the week.

The Transforming Autism Project is dedicated to helping create a world where all people are valued and treated according to their inner essential humanity rather than according to the many labels that each of us could wear (or that could be attached to us). We are thus naturally an equal opportunities organisation.
