You will sit at the heart of the charity’s busy team. You will have a wide range of responsibilities in support of the charity’s objectives. As you develop excellent relationships with a range of colleagues, Trustees, supporters and external partners; you will have a valued role at the heart of a friendly, growing and much-needed organisation. Specifically, they will act as personal assistant to the Chief Executive, provide administrative support to other senior leaders, serve as Clerk to the Court of Assistants (Board of Trustees), and support the organisation’s external relations function.

Juggling a broad portfolio in a small, efficient, and busy team, the role offers significant scope for development as well as a range of challenging responsibilities. You will need to demonstrate excellent writing and organisational skills, as well as a passion for the charity’s core work in supporting Anglican clergy and their families. You will act as the Chief Executive’s ‘right-hand aide’ as he leads the charity’s continued growth, and as the Trust seeks to serve those who spend their lives serving others. Candidates will need to demonstrate sympathy with our Christian ethos, without necessarily being practising Christians.
