Current opportunities

Business Support Officer for the Consortium of Voluntary Adoption Agencies (CVAA)

CVAA is a UK-wide collective of organisations that aims to increase excellence in the adoption system.  We work flexibly and collaboratively, maximising our influence by ensuring our work is evidence-based and enriched by understanding of data and practice.  We are independent of any individual provider, and in a competitive market we provide a co-operative forum for drawing together the best of the adoption system’s intelligence, expertise and innovation.

This is a vital post at the heart of the adoption sector. Voluntary adoption agencies work hard to improve the lives of vulnerable children and families across the UK and CVAA aims to provide a truly excellent membership service to help them do this.  You will take pride in an excellent and continuously improving service for all our members.  You will provide professional support to the Board and Trustees in carrying out their duties.  You will act as executive assistant to the CEO, and work at the heart of our busy team, managing our small office in central London – and working with members across the UK. 

We are looking for someone practical, proactive and really well-organised, a self-starter with a sense of humour.  You will be a trouble-shooter – willing to give things a go and confident enough to work on your own initiative and deal with some strong personalities.  You will also have an interest in adoption and be motivated by improving outcomes for children and families.
