Poverty and inequality are the greatest challenges Scotland faces. The Poverty Alliance is working hard to show how we can change the conversation about, and ultimately solve, poverty. An opportunity has arisen to join our administration team and help us achieve our vision of a Scotland without poverty.

We have an exciting opportunity for an experienced Administrative Assistant to join the Poverty Alliance’s small and fast-moving Administration team.

The post will be responsible for providing administrative support, primarily to our Rights in Action project team, but also across our busy organisation. This will include a wide range of administrative tasks, such as arranging meetings, managing and responding to queries, and day-to-day administrative support to the project team.

We are looking for candidates with a sound understanding of the administrative operations needed in small business. In addition to the necessary technical skills, the role requires a strong attention to detail, excellent communication skills, the ability to manage a varied workload and an enthusiasm for working as part of a team as well as autonomously.
