Clerk/Secretary to Trustees

Up to £35,000 PA (depending upon experience)

Full time

Based in London (with home working for part of the week)

We are The Trust Partnership.  We are a fast-growing and innovative social enterprise helping charitable foundations and almshouses to be better managed and to use their resources more effectively for the benefit of the wider public.  In short, we are having a big impact in philanthropy and almshouse sectors.

We are excited that we’ve not only been able to build a thriving business, but to do so on strong ethical foundations. The way we look after our staff, our clients and other stakeholders is important to us, and being a B Corporation is evidence of that.   We believe it’s possible to be a good business and a profitable one at the same time.

We are looking for someone special to join our growing business. You will be responsible for a portfolio of trusts and almshouse charities who require clerking, and supported by specialists in grantmaking, administration, property management and resident welfare.  Experience of working with boards of Trustees is essential, and some knowledge of almshouses (or social housing) would be preferred.

You need to be able to access London easily and sometimes at short notice and be able to travel in and around the capital.  You will alternate working from home with working from our office which is currently in East London. Occasionally you may be required to travel to other almshouse properties outside London and to visit our office in Gloucestershire.  You will also be required to undertake a DBS check.

We are looking for a motivated individual with an exemplary work ethic and a professional attitude.  Accuracy is essential and an eye for detail that is balanced with an ability to see the bigger picture. Respect, integrity and emotional awareness are central to the role.

Working with us you will receive the following benefits

  • Career progression opportunities
  • Flexible working environment
  • Professional development
  • Membership of an employee benefits platform
  • Charitable Giving matching up to £200 per annum
  • 24 days’ holiday per annum plus Bank holidays (FTE)
  • Christmas shutdown (included in above)
  • Additional day’s contractual leave entitlement after each fifth year of service (up to a total of six days)
  • Eyecare voucher scheme.
