The Lucy Faithfull Foundation is a pioneering child protection charity whose vision is to create a world in which children's rights to live free from abuse and exploitation become a reality.
Our mission is to prevent sexual abuse from happening by working with those perpetrating it, those affected by it and with protective adults who can keep children safe.
Our services, programmes and projects are designed to place a protective shield around children, to help prevent abuse from happening in the first place or to prevent it from happening again. We do this by working in partnership with government, charitable trusts, voluntary, statuatory and private sectors and the public.
We are the only UK wide organisation dedicated entirely to prevent child sexual abuse and have been doing so since 1992. It is an exciting time to join the Foundation as we celebrate 30 years of protecting children.
We are recruiting for a full time Executive Assistant reporting directly to our CEO and supporting members of the leadership team at Director level with a variety of operational and strategic objectives.
Our ideal candidate will have excellent administrative experience with the ability to communicate at all levels with high organisational skills and a sound working knowledge of Microsoft packages (Outlook, Word, Excel and Powerpoint). You will have experience of working in a similar EA / PA role.
You will provide effective, comprehensive and confidential administrative support to our CEO, leadership team and our Board of Trustees. You will be a professional self starter with an excellent eye for detail and will take a keen interest in understanding the work of the Foundation.
Key responsibilities include (but are not limited to):
- Supporting the CEO and Executive team to manage schedules, appointments and travel arrangements.
- Coordinate meetings ensuring agendas and papers are sent out in good time, writing and distributing minutes and actively managing follow through of actions proposed.
- Coordinate and draft organisational reports, presentations and other materials for the Executive team.
- Organise events and meetings with staff and external stakeholders.
- Organise and track key LFF business systems and processes.
- Undertake such other duties as reasonably requested by the Chief Executive.
The position is based at our Epsom office and during the induction / probationary period it is preferable that the successful candidate works from the office to meet and work with colleagues (covid dependent). Hybrid working may be possible after this period.
The successful candidate will be required to undergo a standard DBS check for this position.
We are committed to providing a diverse and inclusive community - a place where we can all be ourselves and succeed on merit. We particularly welcome applications from black, asian, minority ethnic and disabled candidates who are currently under represented throughout the Foundation.
We reserve the right to close the post early as we will be interviewing candidates shortlisted as applications are received, therefore we advise that you submit your completed application form as quickly as possible.
