    Quakers have been committed to peace for more than 350 years. We are passionate about disarmament and anti-militarism, and need someone who shares that passion to join our team. The demands of the post are wide ranging and you'll need real conviction to succeed in it.

    You'll work closely with Quaker committees and colleagues in peace education. But good peace campaigning also requires networking skills, as well as a thorough knowledge of the issues that are relevant across the country.

    This is an exciting time to join us. If you want to make a real impact and raise the profile of peace and disarmament – if you want to make war less likely – we'd love to hear from you.

    In return we offer a generous benefits package, including a pension scheme, 27 days holiday, and other non-financial lifestyle benefits.
