Leadership Support

PA to the Directors (Director of Church Network & Engagement)

The senior leadership (CEO, Chiefs, Directors) roles at CAP encompass a wide range of work; from handling the day to day running of their departments, through to charity wide decision making and international involvement. The Personal Assistant (PA) role exists to support the senior leadership in all that they are tasked with achieving within their roles. 

The PA sits in the Leadership Support team and whilst serving all directors will primarily sit with the Director of Church Network and Engagement, undertaking a range of roles and responsibilities across individual departments and between teams. These will largely be similar responsibilities across all PA’s however there may be specific tasks unique to the senior leader(s) they work for in each season. It can be a very varied role with the PA needing the ability to self motivate, organise well and always pay attention to the details. This specific PA would begin their time at CAP working primarily for the Director of Church Network and Engagement, but may be moved within Directorate space or serve multiple Directors in the future. 

The role

The PA provides high level administrative support to ensure the smooth functioning of the offices of their senior leader(s). They undertake a variety of tasks to deliver the ongoing running of their day to day. They also handle irregular and exceptional tasks or projects that will arise.

Who we're looking for

Our passion for the work of the charity leads us to serve our senior leader in a wide variety of ways, empowering them to focus their time and energy on the areas where they can have the most impact. We are professional, dedicated, passionate and trustworthy.
