    It's a time of change and new beginnings in the way young adults feel part of Quakerism in Britain. This is a unique opportunity to support the work of a vital and exciting project, and to develop your skills in event planning, communications, and monitoring and evaluation.

    Do you have good communication skills? Can you work on your own and as part of a small team? Do you have a close attention to detail and good numeracy skills? Can you work quickly, creatively and accurately under pressure? Are you confident using social media? Can you plan, maintain and improve administrative systems? If so, we'd love to hear from you!

    The Engaging Young Adult Quakers Project organises national events and supports local young adult communities. It aims to improve the participation and visibility of young adults in Britain Yearly Meeting. We are looking for someone to contribute to this work by providing administrative support and helping to maintain links with a vibrant network of young adult Quakers.

    This post is primarily office-based but could fit around an existing work arrangement. We will consider flexible working options; please contact us to discuss these.
