Executive Assistant to CEO and Communications

Health Poverty Action is seeking a dynamic, capable and highly organised person for a fantastic, key role within the organisation. This is a unique role, which might provide a great entry point to the global justice/development sector for someone of outstanding ability who would like to work in it over the longer term.

Job purpose: Provide general assistance to the CEO, senior managers and the work of their departments. Contribute to Health Poverty Action’s communications

Salary: £22,874 rising in length of service increments to £26,803

Hours: Full Time 35 hours. Flexible options considered.

Location: Home-based. Part of the organisation’s Core Team (formerly based in London and called Head Office, now increasingly internationalised)

Responsible to: CEO

Closing date: 9.00am UK time, Mon 9 May

Interview dates: Mon 16 May and Tues 17 May

While the duties are often of an administrative nature (which can also be challenging and varied), the role’s cross-organisational nature, and its working relationships with senior staff, serve as an excellent introduction to the various types of work in a significant global justice organisation.

There are possibilities, over time, of the post holder gradually learning and developing in different areas of work relevant to their skill set and personal interests, whether that be policy/campaigns, fundraising, programmes, or administrative/finance functions.

However this is far more than a role in which to develop for the future. It is one in which the right person can make a profoundly valuable contribution to the life and work of Health Poverty Action right now. It fulfils some key organisational functions. Having these performed well – by someone who shares our passion for global justice – makes such a difference, benefiting all aspects of our work around the world.
