    Britain Yearly Meeting is setting up a Britain-wide network of local development teams to support Quaker communities. Over the next three to five years, we will be placing workers within reach of every Quaker community in Britain – a key part of our plans to help Quaker communities thrive and to reinvigorate Quakerism.

    Our new Head of Local Development will manage the rollout of local development workers and team leaders, and support other staff and local Quakers to work seamlessly with them in providing support for meetings. As part of our Operational Managers' Team, they will also have shared responsibility for the overall delivery of our work.

    We're looking for an experienced project manager to lead this programme of change. They will have experience of building and managing dispersed teams, and of reshaping work to be more responsive to the needs of our beneficiaries. They will also possess strong communication skills.

    Alongside the opportunity to transform the experience of Quakers across Britain, we offer a generous benefits package. To arrange an informal discussion of the role, please email Sherry-Ann Mitchell at sherrym@quaker.org.uk.

    Britain Yearly Meeting is committed to safeguarding children and adults at risk and expect all our staff and volunteers to share and uphold this commitment.

    Quakers have a faith commitment to equality and encourage and welcome applications for posts from all sections of society. You do not have to be a Quaker to apply for this post, but we expect you to uphold the values of our organisation.

    Do you have a strong knowledge of accessibility issues? Can you help us to create an inclusive, all-age residential event?

    We are organising a week-long residential event for Quakers.

    You will liaise with participants, the venue, our events team, and children and young people's team to ensure that identified needs are well met. You will be well organised, flexible and friendly, with a track record in accessibility.

    The event takes place at the University of Bath from 1 to 7 August 2020. Around 1,500 Quakers and their families will be staying on campus.

    This is a fixed term contract, up to 9 months, starting in December. While this is a part-time post, the hours are not spread evenly over the contract. There will be periods that need more time, especially around the event when full time hours (35 hours per week) will be necessary. You will need to undertake frequent travel to London and the University of Bath and be available to stay on campus during the event.

    Quakers have a way of life that is built upon the principles of truth, equality, peace, and simplicity. There is a long-held commitment to putting faith into direct action in the world.
