About the role

We have an excellent opportunity for a Team Coordinator to join our Evidence and Impact team, where you will provide support primarily to the Deputy Director, and the wider team.

Delivering administrative and business support to enable your team to deliver on JRF’s outcomes, you will understand the needs of the team, and will aim to assist in our mission of solving UK poverty. Contributing positively to service transformation across JRF, you will encourage working across teams, and will provide project support as required.

Millions of people are locked in poverty in the UK, we don’t believe that’s right. That’s why we’ve made it our mission to solve it. JRF’s new strategy is to work alongside others to build public and political will for change and demand for solutions.

About you

Our ideal candidate will be an experienced Administrator or Coordinator who has an interest in JRF and what we are trying to achieve. With experience of project administration and of working to deadlines, you will be a team player who has a passion for personal development.

Excellent communication skills are essential, as is having the ability to prioritise and ask for guidance when needed. With a proactive approach, and a willingness to embrace new technology and ways of working, you will be a confident person who can work effectively with people at all levels.

To make our vision a reality we need talent, ideas, skills and passion, plus we need to change some of what we do and how we do it too. So, we’re embarking on a significant period of change. Change that will see us become an outcome focused organisation that embraces new ways of working and modern practices.

If you share our passion, then we need to hear from you!
