The Mayor’s Fund for London is a pan-London, non-political, independent charity, championing opportunities 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 in the fields of food, wellbeing, numeracy and employment 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 2020, we supported over 40,000 young Londoners aged 4-24 across all 33 boroughs, working in partnership with 721 schools, 110 community organisations and 195 employers, 173 charities, social enterprises and local authorities.
The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, is our patron.
PURPOSE OF THE ROLE
The Executive Support Officer is an important support function within the Mayor’s Fund for London. The job holder will be responsible for the smooth operation of the core administrative functions of the charity, including supporting the board and its subcommittees, assisting the Finance Director on HR and finance functions, plus providing a range of office management and team administrative support. The jobholder will also play a pivotal role in managing the office move.
The successful candidate is likely to have significant experience in supporting administration functions in a busy working environment, be able to liaise confidently at a senior level and to have a proactive and problem-solving mindset. The board meeting is held every quarter and runs from 4.30pm-6.30pm and, as the minute taker, the post holder will need to be available during these hours.
Although experience within a charity environment is not essential, interest and empathy in the work of Mayor’s Fund for London would be an advantage.
We are looking for a confident, flexible individual, comfortable in managing competing priorities and able to work across the team. In return we offer a role in a growing, enthusiastic, fast moving team and the opportunity to make a real difference to the lives of young Londoners.
The Mayor’s Fund for London is currently based at City Hall near London Bridge. The charity will be moving to a new location on Union Street, SE1, from later this year. The organisation will be moving to a hybrid working arrangement, with staff expected to be in the office two to three days per week. Due to the nature of the role, we are expecting the job holder to have a flexible approach to being in the office which includes supporting the team at programme events when required. This may mean traveling across London for meetings or events on days when the postholder may be working from home.
