An exciting opportunity has arisen for a proactive and highly organised Executive Assistant to join the Resolution Foundation. Supporting the work of our Senior Leadership Team (Chair, Chief Executive and President), the post holder will play a pivotal role in ensuring the work of the Foundation runs smoothly.

We’re looking for an exceptional candidate with meticulous attention to detail, excellent project management skills and the ability to maintain high standards while working flexibly in a fast-paced environment. This is a key position within our Resources Team and the post holder will need a can-do attitude and the willingness to contribute positively to wider internal communication and administrative procedures.

Excellent written and spoken communication skills are essential, as is the ability to provide strategic management and oversight of all scheduling and planning for our senior team. The role requires the ability to juggle varied and competing demands efficiently, and the confidence to communicate effectively with a range of senior partners and high-profile stakeholders. A commitment to Resolution Foundation’s core mission is essential, and knowledge or interest in economic and social policy making desirable.

The Foundation is a small team and staff members are expected to support each other, work flexibly, and share cross-organisational work in addition to fulfilling individual responsibilities. We offer a competitive benefits package and the opportunity to join our close-knit team at an exciting time in our development as we build on success and look to further raise our public profile and impact. The Foundation supports flexible working and offers a range of family-friendly policies. We also provide training and development opportunities, including support for formal qualifications when applicable.

The Resolution Foundation welcomes applications from all under-represented communities and groups. As part of our commitment to increasing diversity within both our own workforce and the economic policy making sector in general, we offer pre-application discussions to Black, Asian and other Minority Ethnic candidates and all candidates with disabilities who would like to speak to someone about the role in advance. Please contact for more details.

Please note: starting date for this position is 1 July 2021.
