    Britain Yearly Meeting is the national organisation of Quakers in Britain. We are seeking a motivated Personal/Executive Assistant to support four of our senior managers. Along with the Recording Clerk – the most senior member of staff – these four make up our senior management team. This is an exciting opportunity to be involved in a range of activities across the organisation. You will assist the team in its planning, monitoring, drafting of papers and development of administrative systems.

    We need someone with strong administrative experience to ensure the coordinated and effective support of this team. You must be able to manage a range of tasks and multiple diaries. A keen attention to detail is essential, as well as the ability to work quickly, creatively and accurately under pressure.

    Quakers follow a way of life that is built upon the principles of truth, equality, peace and simplicity. We have a long-held commitment to putting faith into direct action. You do not need to be a Quaker to fill this role but you would need to be in sympathy with our values. Weekend and evening work is required from time to time, with occasional periods away at events.
