Salary: £28,488 per annum (London) or £24,216 (Regional)
Length of Contract: Permanent
Quakers in Britain is looking for a Faith in Action Coordinator to help strengthen and grow grassroots Quaker activism for positive social change. This is an ideal role for a ‘people person’ who is passionate about empowering others.
You will be working to strengthen a faith-driven movement by taking action on a range of peace and justice issues. You will bring a flexible, problem-solving approach to the work, providing advice and support to Quakers working on local projects and campaigns. You will help to build a stronger network of Quaker activists, who are inspired by faith and can learn from and support each other.
Building and nurturing good relationships is key to this role. You will need to respond with empathy and sensitivity to the needs of individuals and groups, and identify how best to support them in their work. You will also need good organisational skills and be able to reflect on and learn from your work to inform future planning.
Experience in community development or community organising approaches would be an advantage, but skills are more important than background for this role. We welcome applications from candidates with a diverse range of experience.
Location: Based at our offices in Leeds (LS2) or London (NW1), or at home if you live outside London. London-based staff can work at home some of the time by agreement. Regular travel required.
