Are you passionate about housing issues? Do you believe that everybody has the right to live in a place which is safe, secure and appropriate to their needs?

Quaker Housing Trust (QHT) is a charity through which Quakers can put money directly into projects creating homes. QHT’s work is not just about houses: it is about people and lives, and having a safe, secure and appropriate place to live. It recognises that housing – a home – is a vital element of an inclusive and compassionate society.

The Secretary is the sole staff member supporting QHT; managing and administering a grant and loan programme, acting as Company Secretary and promoting the work of QHT. The role also provides support to Trustees - ensuring the timely production of management information and preparing the business for Board meetings.

You could be based in London NW1, Leeds LS2 or subject to agreement home-based (with regular London travel). The salary scale for this role is:

  • London - £21,022 per annum (£42,045 pro rata, per annum) 
  • Regional - £17,869 per annum (£35,738 pro rata, per annum) 

We are looking for someone who is a self-starter, has experience of managing grant/loan processes, knowledge of charity and company compliance and is skilled at managing a wide range of relationships.  

In return, we offer excellent terms and conditions and the opportunity to make a significant contribution to a small social housing charity, whilst being part of a dynamic, wider staff team working to build a more peaceful, just and sustainable world.

You do not have to be a Quaker; but we expect the Secretary to uphold and demonstrate our values.
