Permanent post (following a probationary period)

Due to the retirement of the current post holder, Scientists for Global Responsibility (SGR) is seeking a new Office Manager to join its Lancaster-based team.

SGR is a small but influential research and campaign organisation that promotes science and technology that contributes to peace, social justice, and environmental sustainability. It has a membership of about 700 natural scientists, social scientists, engineers, and other concerned individuals.

We are seeking a self-motivated and conscientious individual to run our office and support the organisation’s other staff, some of whom work remotely. The main tasks will include financial administration, maintaining the membership database, assisting with organisation of the annual conference, and general office oversight. The work pattern would be negotiable, and there would be a six-month probationary period.

SGR is based in an eco-renovated office space in central Lancaster, although some home-working will be required during the current Covid-19 restrictions.
