NeonDaisy is a Bristol-based social enterprise working with neurodivergent girls and gender non-conforming young people and their families. We run neuro-affirmative, autistic-led groups for young people to connect with others as their true selves. We also help parents and professionals to be allies to neurodivergent young people.

Who we’re looking for

We are looking for volunteer Non-Executive Directors to join our Board, working with our friendly Executive Director team to help oversee the management of NeonDaisy.


Take part in monthly board meetings and occasional workstream meetings as agreed to provide oversight in:

Strategy and operational management

  • Input to specific workstreams as needed (eg strategy, finance, commercial development)



  • Review company budgets

  • Monitor progress against financial plans

  • Sign off annual accounts

Governance and compliance

Your skills and experience

We’re looking for people who have had previous board or senior leadership experience, especially those who’ve led the growth of a small company.

We encourage fresh insights and cross-pollination from different sectors. You don’t need to have worked in this area before or personal experience of autism or ADHD. But you will need to have an interest in neurodiversity and neuro-affirmative approaches, and be keen to learn more.

Although our organisation currently works in Bristol and surrounding counties, you do not need to be from the area yourself; UK-based people applying from outside the Bristol area are welcome to apply. Our board meetings can be held online if required. However, you may be required to travel to attend occasional organisational development workshops in person (eg once/twice a year).

  • A clear and inclusive communication style

  • A collaborative approach

  • A flair for enabling others

About NeonDaisy

NeonDaisy is a Bristol-based social enterprise working with neurodivergent girls and gender non-conforming young people and their families. We create neuro-affirmative autistic-led groups for young people to connect with others as their true selves, as well as helping parents and professionals to be allies to neurodivergent young people.

We’re committed to helping our neurodiverse team to bloom; this is at the heart of everything we do. The Operations Coordinator will have a critical role in enabling this.

Role summary

This is an exciting opportunity to make a direct impact on the wellbeing of autistic young people through your efficient behind-the-scenes coordination. This role would suit someone who’s interested in taking on some vital responsibilities in a small, friendly and very supportive team.


You’ll be responsible for the smooth running of two of our creative youth groups which run between September and March. You’ll create and work to a project plan so the groups run efficiently and on time. This will involve coordinating our team of neurodivergent facilitators and our partners, along with liaising with parents over the phone and on email.


As well as this, you’ll support with other administrative tasks as needed to ensure the business runs efficiently.


You’ll be a pragmatic person who enjoys mediating different viewpoints and information to find the best way forward. You don’t tend to get bogged down in detail, but you do like to see your projects through from start to finish.  


You’ll also be an adaptable communicator. You stay calm and collected if something unexpected is thrown into the mix, and you’re always interested in exploring more efficient ways of doing things.  


This is an exciting role for someone who’s super task-driven but also interested in having a hands-on role in the growth of a dynamic and ambitious social enterprise.
