Head of Local Development
Britain Yearly Meeting is setting up a Britain-wide network of local development teams to support Quaker communities. Over the next three to five years, we will be placing workers within reach of every Quaker community in Britain – a key part of our plans to help Quaker communities thrive and to reinvigorate Quakerism.
Our new Head of Local Development will manage the rollout of local development workers and team leaders and support other staff and local Quakers to work seamlessly with them in providing support for meetings. As part of our Operational Managers’ Team, you will also have shared responsibility for the overall delivery of our work.
We’re looking for an experienced project manager to lead this programme of change. You will have experience of building and managing dispersed teams, and of reshaping work to be more responsive to the needs of our beneficiaries. You will also possess strong communication skills.
This is a full-time (35 hours per week), fixed term post for three years.
Alongside the opportunity to transform the experience of Quakers across Britain, we offer a generous benefits package.

Closing date: 9.00am on Monday 23 September 2019
