We’re recruiting – Team Coordinator

  • Full time
  • £20,000 – £25,000 per annum + retirement savings options
  • One year fixed-term, with potential for extension subject to funding

Since we became independent in 2015 our work has grown significantly – now we’re looking for a new team member to ensure our systems and programmes run smoothly. Our Team Coordinator will act as the lynchpin of our organisation, making sure that our internal processes are efficient and effective, enabling us to run outstanding events and workshops, supporting our Executive Director to manage her diary and inbox, and fielding enquiries from the worlds of financial innovation, social change and beyond.

We’re looking for someone who excels at multitasking and enjoys turning ideas into action. You’ll be a natural organiser who can build their own systems for managing a wide range of ongoing and ad hoc tasks – but you’ll also be happy to reprioritise to accommodate changing needs. You’ll excel at communicating and coordinating across the team, as well as representing the Lab to external contacts at all levels. When you’re faced with new or complex tasks (or problems) you’ll use your initiative and positive attitude to work out the way forward, but you’ll also know when to check in with the team.

Unlike many of our roles, prior experience working in charities or finance isn’t essential, nor is knowledge of innovation or systems change – although you’ll need to be interested in all of these areas. More important are the skills and values you bring to the role, including your ability to see the link between your work and the ultimate impact of the Lab. We’re open to applications from people at all career stages and with any academic or professional background.

The Team Coordinator will be line managed by our Executive Director and will work across our talented, committed and generous team, gaining exposure to all aspects of the Lab’s work, including our programmes, strategic development and governance. You’ll be based in the Lab’s creative office space in Kings Cross, with flexible office hours and scope for remote or home-working some of the time.

You can download the full job description here and application form here. You will need to download the application form to your own computer before you can complete it (click ‘Download’ in the top right of the screen).

Please apply by returning the completed form as a Word document to hello@financeinnovationlab.org by 9.00 am on Tuesday 18 September 2018. Please do not send a CV or letter of application – these will not be read.

We’re not just interested in your formal work experience – if you have voluntary or life experience relevant to the role, please also tell us about this.

We’re committed to providing equality and fairness for all and not to discriminate on grounds of gender, marital status, race, ethnic origin, colour, nationality, national origin, disability, sexual orientation, mental health, religion or age. We encourage and celebrate the different qualities that our colleagues, and others we work with, bring to our work. And we believe that seeing things from a wide range of different perspectives helps us to resolve problems, adapt our approaches and develop as an organisation. We want to bring greater diversity to our team and we are keen to receive applications from people who believe they would do this.
