Job description

At NCT, we know that if you want to build a stronger, kinder, better world, there is and can be no better place to start than at the beginning. We support parents in their first 1,000 days; through pregnancy, birth and the early days of parenthood. We share knowledge. We create networks. We campaign for change. We were founded in 1956 in pursuit of social justice and as a force for radical change. We have achieved so much since then, supporting millions of women and parents through birth and early parenthood.

Today, in a world very different from our foundation, we are committed to strengthening our current offer and organisation. And we are determined to go further. We want to reach communities that traditionally haven’t engaged with NCT. And we want to do more to support parents postnatally, transforming the support available across the first 1,000 days.

We are looking for enthusiastic and dedicated people who share our vision and values. You do not have to be a parent to share this vision and working for the NCT is a rewarding experience. It gives you the opportunity to apply your experience and expertise to help enrich the lives of thousands of parents in the UK. It offers you the opportunity to develop valuable skills and gain insight into working for a charity in the not-for-profit sector. NCT is committed to positive organisational culture, productive workplace and work-life balance that respects the individual.

Are you a dynamic, highly organised people person that cares about social impact and wants to be a part of improving the lives of parents across the UK? We are looking for an Executive Assistant to support the CEO, Executive Team and the Board of Trustees in an exciting time for our journey.


This role supports the Head of Planning, Governance & Inclusion to provide a full and consistently high standard of proactive support. It requires a high level of judgement and the ability to recognise situations that require a decision. You will be capable of making them or referring to an appropriate person for advice based on sound judgement and in the best interests of the charity.


This role involves engagement across the Executive Team (Chief Executive, 3 Executive Directors and the Head of Planning, Governance & Inclusion) and the senior leadership team of the Charity of around 10 people. There will be regular engagement with the Trustees of the charity and with staff in our London office (where this role is based), Bristol office and many home-based staff.


This role will work closely with the Head of Planning, Governance & Inclusion although the day-to-day work not supervised. There will be weekly planning meeting with the CEO. It is anticipated there will be regular and frequent operational meetings with the Head of Planning, Governance & Inclusion and other members of the Executive Team. There will be formal, quarterly one-to-one line management meetings with the Head of Planning, Governance & Inclusion.

See the Job Description attached for full details of this exciting opportunity.

Apply with a CV maximum of 2 pages and an optional covering letter outlining why you want to work at NCT. Please include any skills, experience and qualifications you have acquired that can support this application whether within the working environment or outside.

We will short list throughout the application process and reserve the right to close the application process early, so if you feel you are the right candidate for the role then please apply now!
