The Alpine Club is looking to appoint a full-time Office Manager at its headquarters in Shoreditch, London.
The post involves running a small office to support the elected Main Committee of volunteer Club members headed by the President, Victor Saunders, with support from the Honorary Secretary and Treasurer. In addition to the club office, library and lecture room, the building, (which is wholly owned and managed by the club), has offices which are let to tenants. The Club publishes an Annual Journal and regular newsletters, organises lectures and meets for the benefit of its members and has an active social media presence. The full range of club activities can be seen on its website.
The successful candidate will have experience in an administrative or secretarial role with skills that extend to financial management, information technology, communications and property management. The post holder should be capable of setting up and maintaining administrative systems and comfortable working in a quiet environment, often alone.
As the post is essentially office-based, residence within an easy commuting distance is important.
An interest in mountaineering, the environment or climbing would be desirable.
The position offers a salary of £37,000 p.a. with a performance-related bonus of up to 10%.
