IT Technician (Bristol)

Fixed Term Contract - 20 months, 40 hours per week
Up to £35,000 (depending on experience)

Deadline for applications is 17th April 2017 at 17:30.

Unseen is a charity based in Bristol. We focus on three main areas as we work towards a world without slavery;

  • Supporting survivors and potential victims of slavery; by providing access to a range of specialist services, enabling them to safely recover and develop resilient independent lives
  • Equipping stakeholders; by providing training, advice and resources to facilitate the identification and support of potential victims of slavery
  • Influencing systemic changes; by using our experience and research to impact and inspire transformation across legislation, policy and society.

We are recruiting an experienced IT Technician for an exciting new project, creating the first of its kind case data management system, offered to frontline Anti-Modern Slavery organisations in Europe. The project would mean working within the Anti-Slavery field to ensure partner NGO’s have a way to standardise and capture important information regarding victims, exploitation, and exploiters. The program is a collaboration between Unseen and Caritas, with additional support coming from the Liberty Asia and Salesforce.

On a day-to-day basis, this role would mean taking an assertive role on the technical side of the project. Working in collaboration with the project manager, you will be onboarding NGO partners. The role requires customizing Salesforce for each new partner that joins the program and ensuring effective and logical processes. The job would include intermittent travel around Europe to meet partners, establish relationships, and provide training. You would need to be creative and happy to work with a variety of different personalities and understand the complexity of working in an international development setting.

This project is part of a host of work to specifically address the lack of technical capability in grassroots NGOs and the widening digital divide where majority of the most vulnerable people in the world are falling through massive gaps that technology and "big data" create.

The work is quite unique and the candidate must have these attributes:

  • Be a creative admin and creator of Salesforce apps to customize a relational, powerful, but still intuitive, case management system for NGO workers. We put all hires through Salesforce admin training courses so while prior experience in Salesforce or any CRM system is a big plus, it is not necessary. Being generally tech savvy is a must and important.
  • Interested in data analytics, especially field data and how to use it, is also a plus because we ultimately are one of the first in our field to be systematic in collecting and standardising human trafficking data in any serious fashion. We have already begun some work in this area with the data we have from the past 2 years of work from this project.
  • Value hands on and practical, in a field that is technical but also heavily about managing a variety of relationships of a wide set of stakeholders and building trust with them (like other NGOs or government organisations). This involves visiting them in person often and traveling across Europe to meet with our users and potential users, initially in Czech Republic. We need people who are patient and willing to speak to NGO workers and train them to use Salesforce at their own speed.
  • Be driven and self-motivated is key. Each member of the programme’s team will keep their own hours and manage their work; we are completely output driven, not hours driven.
  • Be flexible; travelling, working in technology with limited resources, and working across NGOs means being able to problem solve whilst delivering results is essential. Being flexible when handling challenges is a must.
  • Work from our Bristol office; it is close to many of our partners and easy to get to other key countries.
  • Be willing to learn and to grow (a lot and very quickly). Due to the nature of the job, we have to condense a huge amount of learning in an incredibly short amount of time. This should either excite you or exhaust you, and if it's not the former, then it's probably not the job for you.

If you are interested in this type of work, up for this kind of challenge, and want at the same time to develop a strong set of technical skills please get in touch!

You will be required to join a small, friendly and committed team as we work towards a world without slavery. Full and on-going training and supervision is provided.

This is a full-time, fixed-term post, working 40 hours per week, for 20 months. We are looking for someone to start as soon as possible (subject to satisfactory references and completion of induction).
