Reform is an independent, charitable, non-party think tank whose mission is to set out a better way to deliver public services and economic prosperity. Our aim is to produce research of outstanding quality on the core issues of the economy, health, education and law and order on the right balance between government and individual; and to communicate it to the public and to opinion formers in all parties and none in order to create a consensus for reform.
Reform’s profile is based on two factors: cutting edge research; an unrivalled events programme; and successful fundraising, which rely on excellent administrative organisation. Reform is looking for a highly organised, bright and energetic individual to manage the day to day running of Reform’s office.
The role involves dealing with routine financial functions (record office expenditure, manage the budget and payroll, assist with the annual accounts); coordinating events (finding and booking venues, sending out invites to speakers and attendees, maintaining the guest-list and ensuring the smooth running of the event) and contributing to the administration of Reform’s busy Party conference programme; acting as PA to both Director and Deputy Director; preparing written correspondence and sustaining excellent relationships with key contacts and supporters; arranging Board meetings; updating timetables and maintaining supplies of stationery and equipment.
The successful candidate will be highly organised and methodical, an excellent team player, articulate and courteous, and an advanced user of MS Office. In addition, financial experience would be beneficial, as would experience as an executive assistant.
