A key contact point for the CEO and Executive Directors you will be required to maintain strong relationships with our stakeholders and external partners, disseminating important communications, managing travel and diaries, as appropriate.
We are looking for an individual with exceptional organisational skills and the ability to build solid, collaborative relationships with both internal and external stakeholders.

We offer flexibility to ensure we have the right fit for the role, the organisation and the individual.
We are keen to receive applications from candidates who can support our values, add to our culture, and bring in fresh perspectives and experiences and we would particularly encourage applications from underrepresented communities. If your experience looks a little different from what we’ve identified and you think you can bring value to the role, we’d love to learn more about you.
