We’re recruiting: Programme and Communications Coordinator

Are you a skilled communicator with an eye for detail? Would you take pride in running successful, creative events and ensuring our internal processes run smoothly? If so, this could be a fantastic opportunity for you to gain experience in a globally recognised pioneer of systems change.

The Finance Innovation Lab is a catalyst for change in the financial system. Our vision is a financial system that works for people and planet: one that is democratic, responsible and fair. We connect people who are changing the financial system, develop them as leaders and help them scale their work. Our flagship programme is Lab Fellowship, a six-month incubation programme for innovators with a social purpose, and we have an exciting strategy for growing our work over the next few years.

We’re looking for someone to support our day-to-day communications and operations, and our regular participative learning events. You’ll report directly to the Executive Director and you’ll gain exposure to the full range of our work in financial innovation, social investment, advocacy and campaigning, and business engagement.

You don’t have to have a lot of experience in finance or systems change, but you do need to be highly proactive, organised and efficient, a natural team player, and someone who sees unexpected or unusual challenges as an opportunity to learn.

If this sounds like you, please download the full job description here.

You can apply by sending your CV and a covering letter (each no more than 2 A4 sides) to hello@financeinnovationlab.org by 9am on Tuesday 30 May 2017. In your covering letter, please tell us why you are interested in this role and what makes you a good fit.

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. If you have any questions about your suitability for the role, please email us at the same address and we’ll do our best to help (but please note that we are a small team and won’t be able to respond immediately).

We are committed to providing equal opportunities for everyone regardless of their background. We recognise that people from certain backgrounds are under-represented in society and in our communities, and we want to correct this. We are particularly keen to receive applications from Black, Asian and minority ethnic people; people with disabilities; people who identify as being LGTBQIA; people who have a mental health condition; and people who identify as working class or have done so in the past.
