In your first 6 months you’ll:

About you
We’re looking for a strong, all-round administrator with an eye for detail and a comfort with numbers. You’ll be the safe pair of hands who makes sure that our processes run seamlessly, allowing the team to focus on the more complex tasks at hand. A desire to support a team in a very varied role is a must!

You’re likely to have:

  • A demonstrable ability in prioritizing and meeting rigid deadlines whilst multitasking.
  • Excellent written communication skills. This will help with writing emails to members and charities. 
  • Good computer skills, with the ability to grasp new applications quickly. Knowledge of Salesforce would be a plus.
  • Incredible attention to detail. 
  • A financial mindset and experience working across currencies would be a plus. 
  • Flexibility and adaptability.
  • A skill for proactive problem solving.
Why work with us?
You can find more about the benefits we offer here, but what makes us truly special is both our mission and our people. We’re a diverse team, from both charitable and commercial backgrounds, who believe that amazing things can happen when we tackle problems together. We offer a flat structure and an opportunity to help shape the future of philanthropy.

We have a global flexible first approach to working.

We ask that applicants to this role are based within the UK. Although we have a small HQ in London, there’s no expectation for you to attend on a regular basis. At the same time, if you think you’d benefit from a desk in a co-working space close to your home, this can be arranged. Otherwise, you just need a great home wifi connection and we’ll provide you with everything else you need to be successful in your role.

On top of this, we’ll bring the global team together twice per year (when it’s safe to do so)!

We are an equal opportunity employer and value diversity at Founders Pledge. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, colour, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status. We are committed to building an inclusive and diverse workplace where everyone can do their best work.


We are looking forward to hearing from you!
