Administrator application

Sukkat Shalom/Edinburgh Liberal Jewish Community (ELJC)

Part time (7 hours per week)
£25,000 p.a. pro rata
The contract is fixed term for one year.
Working mainly from home, but requiring some regular and some occasional
in-person presence in Edinburgh.

This is an exciting opportunity for a dynamic, well-organised and strongly motivated person to work with ELJC as its first paid administrator.

ELJC is part of Liberal Judaism and one of a number of autonomous communities in the UK. It is a dynamic, growing and diverse community with around 150 members and the only Liberal Jewish community in Scotland. Based in Edinburgh, it has members across Scotland and is served by a part time rabbi.

Its core aim is to provide services and activities that embody its values, strengthen its Liberal Jewish identity and meet the wide diversity of its members’ faith, practice and support needs. It is a lay-led community, overseen by an elected Council and is a Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation (SCIO).

Your role will be to assist with the regular administrative requirements, contribute to the smooth running of the community, help with communications and support the development of the community. You will have excellent administrative skills, be able to work on your own initiative and in close contact with the community leadership. You will have experience of a range of software tools and online systems, excellent keyboard skills and the ability to work with spreadsheets, databases, newsletters and mailing systems.

Working hours will be flexible depending on both the needs of the community and the needs of the post-holder. Even if you don't meet all the required criteria, we encourage you to apply if you feel you have the experience and skills to do the job.
