Job description

As a registered charity, English Heritage is governed by a board of trustees who delegate day-to-day responsibility for the running of the organisation to a senior management team. Sir Tim Laurence is Chairman of the Board of Trustees and Kate Mavor is our Chief Executive.

As Executive Assistant to the Chief Executive and Chairman, you will be responsible for supporting the CEO and Chairman in line with English Heritage's priorities and strategic objectives, as well as managing a Business Support Assistant, to ensure the smooth running of the CEO and Chairman's office.

You will also work closely with the Head of Governance to support the CEO and Chairman with Trustee Board and Committee meetings and visits.

You'll be based at English Heritage's Wood Street office, situated in the heart of the City of London. Although you'll be based here most of the time, there will also be the opportunity to travel to some of our stunning historic sites as part of your role.

This role provides the Chief Executive and Chairman with comprehensive support to ensure the smooth running of their office. This includes diary management, management of incoming and outgoing correspondence, support at internal and external meetings and planning ahead to ensure that effective use is made of the time available.

We strive to be an inclusive employer and are always looking for people who reflect the diversity of the country today, to help us make it more relevant to the diversity of the people, communities and places we serve. We continually look for new ways to promote the past in a way that is inclusive to all and that celebrates the cultural diversity of England's heritage.

From remote sites to inner city monuments, from regional teams to our Head Office, the diversity of our teams is critical to making sure our shared heritage is inclusive, exciting and accessible.

You'll find it's a workplace like no other - taking you behind the scenes of these extraordinary sites and supporting you to share your ideas, inspire others and make a difference.

By joining us, you'll enjoy the rewards of a great team environment in inspiring locations, helping to make our site a wonderful place to visit. You'll also be joining our charity, which through our 400+ historic monuments, buildings and sites, brings the story of England to life for over 10 million visitors each year. We offer a competitive benefits package including a generous pension, 25 days leave a year and free entry to all English Heritage properties for you, another adult and up to 6 children (under the age of 19).
