    Are you supportive, persuasive and approachable? Do you care about the details whilst still seeing the bigger picture? Are you a great communicator and an even better listener? Can you talk about money without embarrassment?

    Britain Yearly Meeting seeks a talented and committed individual to become Head of Member Engagement. You will make sure that role-holders running Quaker meetings are well-supported, that our communications with members are effective, find ways to engage Quakers with the work done nationally in their name, and lead BYM's fundraising efforts.

    You'll join our Communication & Services Department to lead a team of 8-10 colleagues, who work on behalf of BYM Trustees and Quaker Life Central Committee to deliver services and communicate effectively to Quaker meetings, and to raise income from contributions, legacies and grants.

    You'll need a good feel for what makes the Quaker community tick, bold ideas for how to excite and involve them, excellent interpersonal skills, and line-management experience. If you've done some fundraising too, we'd like to hear about it.

    Could this be you? If so, we'd like to meet you!

    It offers the potential to shape future property support to Quakers and to make a significant contribution to the way our eclectic and valued properties are cared for.

    There are over 350 Quaker-owned 'meeting houses' in Britain today, ranging from fifteenth century timber-framed farm houses, through to grade I listed stone structures, to carbon-neutral, eco-buildings. Meeting houses are important places of community and worship and we want to find the right person to help Quakers look after them.

    We're looking for someone with a practical, thoughtful, and pragmatic approach who has experience of looking after property, be it through property management, maintenance, construction and/or design.

    If you can answer 'yes' to these questions, we'd love you to apply:

    Can you work closely with members of a religious community who manage their properties in diverse ways and who are not necessarily typical 'clients'?

    Could you empower others to become more confident and independent in making good decisions about their properties?

    Can you translate your own expert property knowledge into easy-to-understand advice, information and resources?

    Do you have sympathy with Quaker values and think that you'll be able to work with Quaker structures, committees and decision-making practices?

    Can you manage projects in an effective, organised and transparent way?
