    People in many Quaker meetings and communities find role-holding and admin too burdensome. It can be difficult to fill these roles. Consequently, meetings have little time or energy for outreach, building community or action in the world.

    We're looking for someone who can streamline and clarify the guidance and support offered to role holders. We want to reduce the administrative burden, so that meetings can become simpler, healthier, happier communities. The successful candidate will work collaboratively for cultural change across our organisation.

    Do you have experience of project planning, delivery and review? Can you make complex information accessible and easy to understand? As well as having a strong sympathy with Quaker values, you'll be comfortable working with members of a faith community.

    If this is you, please get in touch! In return we offer a competitive salary and excellent benefits package.
