Job title: Team Coordinator and Executive Assistant
Working hours: 28 hours per week
Salary: £24,000 a year (this is equivalent to a full-time salary of £30,000 a year)
Who we are?
At London Funders we are at the heart of a great network of over 170 member organisations, focused on funding in London. This includes every local authority in London, City Hall, independent Trusts and Foundations, businesses, social investment organisations and more. Together, our members invest hundreds of millions of pounds every year in civil society through all aspects of London’s life, from arts through to welfare, so that people across our communities can live better lives. We’re the place where funders come together to connect and collaborate, where ideas are generated and acted on, and where people work to ensure that resources are channelled to the right places.
What are we looking for?
The Team Coordinator and Executive Assistant role is the glue in the team, who can make things happen and help us to deliver our work to a standard we can all be proud of. This role is crucial to us in ensuring that everything runs smoothly – from being the friendly first point of contact for the team, helping to manage our diaries so we use our time effectively, and keeping the office running, through to organising the logistics of our events and supporting our work with our members so that we continue to deliver what’s needed for London.
You’ll bring your skills and experience at effective office administration to help run our systems – from using programs you’ll be familiar with (Microsoft Office software), to others that might be new to you (including Salesforce and QuickBooks) where we can provide you with training and support to use them effectively. Your excellent communication and interpersonal skills will help you to work as part of our small team, as well as with the colleagues in our member organisations you’ll be meeting at our events. You’ll soon find that no two days are the same, so whilst some elements of the job will be fairly routine (from diary management to taking minutes at meetings), you’ll also thrive on the variety of things you can get involved in, using your prioritisation skills to help you stay focused on achieving great things as part of our friendly team.
How to apply?
The deadline for getting your application to us is 12pm (midday) on Friday 22 October 2021 – we’ll be shortlisting that day, and if you’re selected for interview we’ll invite you in to see us on either Tuesday 26 or Wednesday 27 October 2021. When you meet us we’ll ask you to do a short test (of your computer and prioritisation skills, you won’t need to prepare in advance for this), and we’ll then have an interview with you which will also include some time for you to ask us any questions.
When you’re ready, send your CV, covering letter and diversity monitoring form as outlined in the application pack. We look forward to hearing from you!
