PA to SMT Role Description
The young people, children and families that we support are at the heart of everything we do at Mermaids. As our work has expanded, so has the staff team. As a result of this, we are looking to recruit a highly professional, friendly, and approachable Personal Assistant to provide administrative and secretarial support to our CEO and Senior Management Team.
Mermaids has been supporting trans children, young people, and their families since 1995. Mermaids has evolved into one of the UK’s leading LGBTQ+ charities, empowering thousands of people with its secure online communities, local community groups, helpline services, web resources, events, training, legal support, policy and stakeholder engagement and residential weekends.
We also seek to educate and inform wider society on gender identity by helping professionals accommodate and reassure gender diverse young people. Over the years, we’ve seen many changes in the language and understanding surrounding gender issues, but one thing remains the same: trans children deserve the freedom and confidence to explore their gender identity wherever their journey takes them, free from fear, isolation and discrimination.
