An exciting opportunity has arisen for an Admin/Research Assistant to help develop and deliver our events programme.

TotRockinBeats, is a non-profit, community interest company, and is the UK's most innovative and exciting inter-generational event and publishing organisation. 

As part of its organisational structure, we have a revolutionary new concept that aims to tackle social isolation for dads.

Dad La Soul is a monthly run, Saturday morning club for dads, step-dads, male careers, granddads and their kids, being launched around Sussex and eventually across the UK.

Dad La Soul provides socially rich, educational exchanges between men and their families, of varying abilities, from different generations, backgrounds, socio-economic positions, and cultures.

We work alongside a number of other non-profit organisations including Guildcare and CALM (The Campaign Against Living Miserably) one of the UK’s leading male suicide prevention charities, to help encourage men to talk.

“Our shifting perception of what a dad’s role is in a modern family is overdue, but without fundamental changes to society’s approach, we won’t create the support network for dads to be the modern version that we hope they can be, instead of setting them up for failure”.

We now require a switched on Admin/Research Assistant to help with our expansion plans:
