Join our team! Administrative Assistant

The Women’s Budget Group is a network of feminist economists, researchers, policy experts and activists that work towards a more gender equal society.

We are seeking a dedicated person to join the Women’s Budget Group as an Administrative Assistant. You will provide administrative, office management and event organisation support to our small busy team. The successful candidate will have experience in an administrative role, including event management and will be well organised and able to work on their own initiative.

This role would suit someone who is perhaps thinking about taking their first steps into a career in research and policy or is keen to develop their skills in administration and governance, and who thrives working in a fast-paced environment and working in a small, friendly team. This is a varied role and there is scope to develop the position to suit a wide range of interests. Full training will be provided.

This is an exciting time to join WBG – our team is rapidly growing and we have launched three new projects this year including our Local Data Project, our Feminist Green New Deal project in collaboration with Wen and our Global Learning and Partnerships Programme, inspired by the launch of our Commission on a Gender Equal Economy in 2020. We have built a strong reputation for analysing the impact of UK Government policies and for research into alternative policies that would promote gender equality.
