Full Description


Polio Survivors Ireland works to maintain the independence and dignity of polio survivors, supporting them at work, in the home and beyond.

Polio Survivors Ireland are the only organisation in Ireland providing practical support (and sometimes, more importantly, a listening ear) to those unfortunate enough to have contracted polio when babies or young children.

Polio Survivors Ireland was set up in 1993, as the Post-Polio Support Group by polio survivors who were experiencing the Late Effects of Polio (Post-Polio Syndrome). The lack of information available to them about their condition had been identified as a significant problem. Polio Survivors Ireland are now seeking to recruit a part-time Administration Officer to join their warm and committed team.


The Administration Officer will be organised and diligent and will provide day-to-day administration, information, and support to the members of Polio Survivors Ireland, the CEO, the Board and external stakeholders such as statutory funders.

This role requires a pragmatic people person who can take direction well and show experience and ability in a range of areas including:

• Strong writing, composition and literacy skills • Numerical understanding and financial administration experience including processing invoices and managing petty cash • The ability to develop and maintain relationships with multiple stakeholders at a variety of levels • Experience developing organisational policies and procedures • A high standard of spoken and written English

The ideal candidate will thrive working in a varied, team environment. This role would suit someone with a strong administrative background who is genuinely interested in and / or familiar with the work of not-for-profits in Ireland. You will be confident on the telephone and enjoy interacting with people.

If you’re a highly organised individual, with a collaborative work ethic, a high level of attention to detail and the ability to prioritise multiple workloads, this could be the role for you!
