Working With Us
We are searching for a Programmes + Team Assistant to work across both of our work streams: schools and organisations. As a startup that has existed for just over three years, we are an exciting, dynamic team of three who work tirelessly to end inequality across our society. We have a flat structure, and we support and manage one another through collaboration, compassion and openness.
Our new Programmes + Team Assistant will be trained and directly supported by our COO, Rachael Curzons. They will begin by engaging primarily with the team’s administrative needs, including* diary management, resource management, creating spreadsheets and external communications documents, updating internal systems, travel and accommodation booking, general filing and operational duties. You will also be a key part of our schools work – following tried and tested processes to manage the administration side of the programmes from beginning to end, advised and assisted by the COO and our Director of Programmes, Sara Shahvisi.
Beyond these aspects of the role, we want the Programmes + Team Assistant to function as the backbone of the organisation, supporting us at speed through all of our work to ensure we can be the best we can be, in order to affect positive change within society. We hope in return we can offer a real opportunity to gain experience working in an innovative, fast-paced and ambitious team where there is much to learn from hands-on work. Through opportunities to work on our public events with organisations and schools (e.g The Gender Assembly), and our schools work, we hope to give you access to a range of experiences that are exciting, different and fun!
This role is based in our London office and is full-time.
