We're Hiring!

We are looking for an Administrative Assistant to perform a variety of administrative and clerical tasks. Duties of the Administrative Assistant include providing support to the Leading your Church into Growth Director and Associate Director, assisting in daily office needs, and managing our company’s general administrative activities.

It is a part-time post: 7 hours a week. 

What will the Administrative Assistant do?

Administrative Assistant responsibilities include making travel and meeting arrangements, maintaining appropriate filing systems, handling bookings for our online and residential conferences, completing our online orders by connecting with customers and posting out the orders, responding to correspondence on behalf of our Associate Director, etc. 

You will work most closely with, and be line managed by, our Associate Director. It will be necessary to maintain regular contact. As our Associate Director works from home in this role, you will need to be able to either travel to Therfield, near Royston in North Hertfordshire, or be adept at meeting via Zoom or other online conferencing platforms. 

The ideal candidate should have excellent oral and good written communication skills and be able to organize their work using tools, like MS Excel, Word, and office equipment. Previous experience as a Secretary or Executive Administrative Assistant is desirable, as is an understanding of the structures and organisation of the Church of England.
