About The Commonwealth War Graves Commission

The Commonwealth War Graves Commission (CWGC) honours and cares for the men and women of the Commonwealth forces who died in the First and Second World Wars, ensuring they will never be forgotten. Funded by six Member Governments, our work began with building, and now maintaining, cemeteries at 23,000 locations all over the world.

Today, over a century after we first began, our work continues through our staff, supporters and volunteers who preserve our unique cultural, horticultural, and architectural heritage and ensure that the stories of those who died are told.

About this Role and You

This is a critical role working at the very top of this prestigious global organisation, supporting and managing the CWGC Secretariat function, providing the CWGC and its committees, with a full Board Administration and efficient Communications Service. You will be excellent at coordinating, developing, and delivering robust Governance protocols.

You will also be directly involved with the daily requirements of the Director General, the Vice Chairman and the Commissioners ensuring they are supported, well informed and organised. As part of this role, you will be pivotal in Senior organisational meetings, producing accurate and concise minutes, chasing actions, and circulating papers.

This role will work daily with the wider (and developing) Director General team and manage the Commission's formal administration and board secretariat duties including Commission and executive leadership meetings, arranging extensive, global travel arrangements and diary management.

This is a remarkable opportunity for someone who possesses exceptional organisational, people and communication skills, to be part of one of the world's most respected organisations and build meaningful relationships across the globe.

You will be able to Demonstrate:

With significant and proven experience of running the main board secretariat and first-class administration skills, working at the very top of a large organisation, you will have:

  • An exceptional ability to anticipate needs and make decisions on your own initiative
  • Exceptional, succinct, accurate minute taking while maintaining confidentiality
  • Complex diary management, coordinating across multiple offices, continents and time zones
  • Arranging, administering, and managing governance and committee structures/meetings, preparing Invitations, Board Packs, Agendas, Actions Lists and Minutes

This is a fantastic role within the very heart of our unique Organisation. There will be opportunities for travel, so you must have the flexibility and ability to travel both nationally and internationally, as needed. As the Director General travels extensively around the world, you will also need to be on hand to assist as and when issues arise, or travel arrangements change at short notice, sometimes out of office hours.

In addition, we are looking for applicants who share our Values of Respect, Excellence, Teamwork, Communication, Professionalism and Commitment.

What We Offer:

  • A generous holiday allocation, with 25 days annual leave, rising by 1 day per year up to a maximum of 30
  • Paid public holidays
  • Paid office closure between Christmas and New Year
  • Flexible working arrangements
  • Generous Pension Scheme, with CWGC contributing up to 15%
  • Up to six times salary Life Assurance cover
  • Employee Assistance Programme
  • We offer piece of mind for our employees travelling on business via International SOS

How to Apply

Simply apply by sending us your CV, cover letter and completed application form. A full job description, our application form and a Recruitment Pack can be found on our website Careers page .

Close Date: Applications will be reviewed upon submission, with successful candidates being invited to interview on either 16 or 17 February 2022.

We reserve the right to close applications early when there is either sufficient interest, or an offer of employment has been made.

We value the differences that a diverse workforce brings and are committed to creating a respectful work environment where everyone is treated with dignity and respect and where any unlawful and/or unfair discrimination is eliminated. We will not unlawfully discriminate directly or indirectly in recruitment or employment on grounds of sex, gender reassignment, pregnancy, race, colour, nationality, ethnic or national origins, age, sexual orientation or marital status, religion or belief.
