We are seeking an Office Manager to be the backbone of the Foundation's central operations, based in our offices in central York. This is for a period of nine months to cover a maternity leave.
Friends Provident Foundation is an independent charity that makes grants and uses its endowment towards a fair and sustainable economic system that serves society. We connect, fund, invest and share learning to shape an economy that works for all.
We wish to recruit someone to our small, friendly team, working to ensure the Foundation has effective administration, governance, financial and communication systems and procedures to enable colleagues, trustees and the organisations we support to meet our organisational and change objectives.
You will need to be proactive, systematic and solutions focused, have 2 years administrative experience, be literate, numerate and have good IT skills and the ability to provide a high quality, professional service to those whose work we support. Excellent communication skills, a willingness to explore new ideas and approaches, learn new skills and take on new challenges is essential. Experience of working within a multi-disciplinary team, working directly with a board and an understanding of the non-profit sector would be distinct advantages.
The Foundation office is in York but facility for home working will be important. Later in the year, the applicant may need to be able to travel occasionally within the UK. The post is full time; flexible working arrangements are available.
We welcome applicants from all age groups and backgrounds. We are a Living Wage employer.
