Traidcraft Exchange works for trade and climate justice. In South Asia and East Africa, we support farmers, workers and artisans to benefit from more sustainable and equitable trade, and in the UK we advocate and campaign for changes to business practices and government policy.
It is an exciting time to join our organisation. Following a strategic review, we are embarking on a process of change to shift power to groups in the global south, and to rethink the way we work in the UK. We are committed to equality and providing a diverse and inclusive workplace. We particularly welcome applications from those who are significantly underrepresented in our sector, including disabled people and individuals from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic communities.
We are recruiting for the newly created role of Personal Assistant to the CEO/Office Administrator. This role will provide PA support to the CEO and also take on administrative duties as part of the Central Operations team. The ideal candidate will bring excellent organisational, administrative and interpersonal skills, along with knowledge of MS Office IT packages. You should be able to work collaboratively, proactively and confidentially with a variety of senior level management, the central operations team and board members. Understanding of charity governance and statutory compliance would be beneficial but is not essential. A major part of your work will be coordinating and proactively managing the CEO’s busy diary, responding to and prioritising internal and external meeting requests.
You will ideally have previous experience of working as a PA and/or administrator, be confident in multi-tasking and able to arrange tasks in a timely manner showing great attention to detail.
The role will be based out of one of our friendly UK offices in Newcastle upon Tyne or London (hybrid working with 1-2 days a week office based, rest of the week may be home working). Hours can be flexible between 25-30 per week to suit the candidate though we do need this role to be available to work Monday to Friday.
As well as a competitive salary we offer flexible working hours, 25 days holidays in addition to UK bank holidays (increasing to 27 days upon 2 years service), a healthcare cash plan, life assurance and pension plan with 7.5% employer contribution.
