Are you well organised and want to support our persecuted brothers and sisters?

Do you have the ability to prioritise and manage multiple tasks simultaneously and follow through on issues in a timely manner.

Do you have excellent communication skills and the ability to form good working relationships?

Open Doors is a Christian charity, part of Open Doors International, a global NGO network which works in over 60 countries to support and strengthen persecuted Christians. Last year the UK base raised approximately £15 million to provide practical support to persecuted Christians such as food, medicines, trauma care, legal assistance, safe houses and schools, as well as spiritual support through Christian literature, training and resources.

We have a fantastic opportunity for a talented administrator to further develop their skills and experiences by joining our People, Culture and Operations as EA to the Director. In this role you’ll be able to combine your interest in organisational operations with your excellent administration skills.

You’ll be responsible for providing administrative, coordination and capacity support to the People, Culture and Operations directorate, with additional task management to the Director of Finance and President.

You will ideally have experience as a PA or EA at senior manager/director level, as well as experience of calendar management and the coordination of complex meetings and confidence in drafting reports and proposals, working with figures as well as words with a high degree of accuracy and professionalism. You will be committed to high standards and show exceptional attention to detail.

You will discover that we work here because we are passionate about the mission of Open Doors. This role will provide you with the opportunity to use your God-given character and talents to contribute to the work of Open Doors, and to be part of a team that seeks to grow the charity, to support and encourage one another, and uphold the Christian values that we base our identity on.
