Experienced in operating at a senior Executive Assistant or Personal Assistant level in a fast-paced, multi-faceted environment, you will have impeccable diary management, prioritisation skills, keen attention to detail, and the resilience and ability to work under pressure to tight deadlines. You will bring a calm, confident, capable demeanour to this role, with a clear emphasis on clear communication and collegiate working. You will professionally engage with external stakeholders including our Board of Trustees, donors, partners and officials.

You enjoy working in an entrepreneurial environment and will take pride in supporting a purpose driven charity move confidently into its next chapter of growth. Crucially, your personal sense of integrity and positive energy will make you a natural addition to the team.
