The Military Wives Choirs – Finance and Administrative Assistant


Reporting to: Director, Choirs Support Team

Hours: 37.5 hours per week

Salary: £20,000 per annum

Location: Central London, although currently home-based working. Flexible working will be considered.

Contract: Permanent

Background & Role Summary

With 72 choirs and nearly 2,000 members in British military bases across the UK and internationally, the Military Wives Choirs is a charity that brings all women in the military community, not only wives, closer together and empowers them through singing. Families of service personnel move around frequently and it can often be tough to put down roots or make new friends, particularly when loved ones are away for long periods of time. Research shows that singing in a choir can help to alleviate stress and can contribute to an improvement in mental health. The Military Wives Choirs therefore have a vital role to play by bringing women in the military community together to sing, share and support one another.

Location is currently home based, with longer term expectation to be within a commutable distance of the City of London. This is a fantastic opportunity to join a small and energetic team who look after the operations of the charity, supporting and guiding the network of Military Wives Choirs.

Every day is busy, and every day is rewarding and as the first point of contact for our choirs and our supporters you will be experienced in handling enquiries and ensuring we maintain an excellent approach to all.
