It's time to change how young adults feel part of Quakerism in Britain. Have you got an understanding or experience of research, measuring, presenting and implementation? Are you able to inspire others to act? Can you ask the questions that will help Quakers in Britain become more inclusive of young adult Friends? Could you be the person to take this on?
This is an opportunity to use your skills to serve Quakers in Britain, an organisation committed to peace, integrity, simplicity, sustainability and equality in all its dealings.
The visibility and involvement of young adult Friends has been declining in recent decades and this new project will look for ways to reverse that trend. You will be a member of the Ministry and Outreach staff team based in Quaker Life. You will need strong communication skills and be able to work successfully on your own, as part of a small team and by networking within Britain Yearly Meeting and with other organisations, individuals and groups.
This is a unique opportunity to demonstrate your ability to lead on a vital and exciting project and make recommendations for the future of this work.
Some weekend and evening work is required.
