We are now seeking a freelance project manager to make this happen.

  • Project planning and management 
  • Excellent oral and written communication 
  • The ability to engage confidently and sensitively with diverse volunteers, lay leaders and rabbis 
  • Professional or personal experience of LGBT+ issues, ideally within the Jewish community 

This is a freelance position paid at £120-150 per day depending on qualifications and experience for approximately 50 days per year (equivalent to 0.2 FTE – flexible working including evenings and some weekends required).
