Administrative Assistant

  • Part time
  • Sessional
  • Edinburgh
  • Closing 6th April 2021

  • Advertised from 15th March 2021
  • £12.50 per hour, 8 hours per week. Freelance.


Job Purpose:To provide practical support to the trustees across all areas of EJCC’s operation – governance, management, programme development, programme delivery and fundraising.

Who We Are: Edinburgh Jewish Cultural Centre registered as a SCIO with the Office of the Scottish Charity Regulator in 2018. Our background, history and programme of activities can be found on our website but in short, our purpose is to celebrate and share Judaism and Jewish culture with people of all faiths and none, Jews and non-Jews, as we create a dynamic and vibrant Jewish life for the 21st Century.

Our ultimate ambition is to create a physical space which will be a home for our programme and a catalyst for community cohesion in Edinburgh and across Scotland.

At present all of our activity is generated by a volunteer board of trustees who give of their time and expertise freely to develop and grow the work of the organisation. The success of our activities to date now means that in order to take the next steps on our journey we need to engage administrative support to help underpin our plans for the future.

Duties and Responsibilities: The list is wide-ranging and comprehensive. Please do not be put off from applying if you do not have skills in every area listed. At present our programme takes place online. While we anticipate a gradual return to face-to-face events, we expect that ‘virtual’ will be an ongoing dimension of our programme. We expect, therefore, that candidates will have excellent IT skills, be comfortable working across a variety of social media and, ideally have experience of Wix, the online platform on which our website is built.
