An exciting opportunity has arisen for a proactive and highly organised Executive Assistant to join our team.

The post holder will play a pivotal role, supporting the work of our Senior Leadership Team (Chair, Chief Executive and President), and help to ensure the work of the Resolution Foundation continues to run smoothly.


What does the role involve?

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. 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.


What kind of person are we looking for?

We’re looking for candidates with meticulous attention to detail, an aptitude for organisation and the ability to maintain high standards while working flexibly in a fast-paced environment. Excellent written and spoken communication skills are essential, as is the ability to maintain oversight of all scheduling and logistics for our senior team.

We also require excellent interpersonal skills and the ability to work quickly and flexibly as part of a small team where staff members are expected to support each other and share cross-organisational work in addition to fulfilling individual responsibilities. A commitment to Resolution Foundation’s core mission is also desirable.


What is the organisational culture?

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 offers a range of family-friendly policies and also provides training and development opportunities. Due to the nature of the duties of the Executive Assistant, the postholder will be required to work predominantly from our Westminster office, with limited opportunities for remote working.


Diversity at the Resolution Foundation
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 candidates from black, Asian and other minority ethnic backgrounds. Please contact for more details.

In line with our determination to attract a diverse team, we regularly analyse a variety of statistics to inform the focus of our work in this area. To help with this, we would be grateful if you would complete the equal opportunities monitoring form provided on the application platform.
