Job description

The Mayor’s Fund for London is an independent charity, championing social mobility for young Londoners from low-income backgrounds. We believe that all young people, regardless of their starting point in life, should be able to thrive in their community, forge fulfilling careers and are able to take advantage of the outstanding opportunities that London has to offer.

Our work raises awareness of the barriers facing young Londoners, promotes the activities which best increases their opportunities and brings together the partnerships to make a measurable impact on young Londoners’ lives. In 2018, we supported over 35,000 young Londoners aged 4-24 across all 33 boroughs working in partnership with 427 schools, 110 community organisations and 94 employers, charities, social enterprises, and local authorities. The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, is our patron. 

Purpose of the role

The Executive Support Officer is a pivotal role within the Mayor’s Fund for London.  The job holder will be responsible for the smooth operation of the executive functions of the charity, including support for governance (board and subcommittees), some HR functions (such as inductions), office management, plus team diary support.  The successful candidate is likely to have significant experience in supporting administration functions in a busy working environment, able to liaise confidently at a senior level and to have a proactive and problem solving mindset.

Although experience within a charity environment is not essential, interest and empathy in the Mayor’s Fund work would be an advantage.
