    Britain Yearly Meeting is a radical church with a passion for peace, integrity, equality, simplicity and sustainability. Quaker Peace & Social Witness (QPSW), is a hub within the organisation for action on peace and social justice. We support Quaker witness in local communities in Britain and internationally, and represent Quakers at national and international levels to government, business and the general public.

You will also play a central role in the life of the department, by initiating and overseeing activities and projects to improve coordination of the work.

    Are you capable, flexible and enthusiastic, with knowledge of and sympathy with Quaker values? Do you have excellent communications skills and experience of equipping and engaging supporters or volunteers to take action? If so, you should apply.
