About the Employer
In the UK there are more than 1.3 million children and young people living with a disability and nearly four million children living in poverty. This charity exists to improve the lives of these children and since 1949 they have raised more than £270m in pursuit of this objective. This organisation provides practical, tangible help that makes an immediate difference, which includes grants for specialist equipment as well as accessible transport used by schools and other non-profit organisations across the UK. Their Great Days Out are legendary.
They are seeking a highly skilled, professional, and dynamic Executive Assistant to support the Chief Executive and the Chief Barker (Chair of the Board of Trustees). The role involves supporting both executive leaders with day-to-day administration as well as organising various regular board and committee meetings etc. The role will also encompass office and HR management duties as and when required.
The ideal candidate will have experience in both supporting a senior executive and a board of Trustees/ Directors (or senior committee). You will be skilled at building relationships at all levels of the organisation and must show discretion and tact when dealing with matters of a confidential nature.
You will need previous experience in an EA role, be unflappable, very organised, and able to stay on top of a busy and varied workload where it is crucial to manage the Chief Executive’s time and activities skilfully and confidentially. You will have a high level of communication skills (both written and verbal), with a can-do attitude and someone who can use their initiative to proactively drive deadlines and forward plan ensuring varied tasks are done.
This is a unique opportunity to join the Charity at an exciting time and be part of a small team making big changes for its future.
