The UK’s leading interfaith organisation is looking for an organised and motivated self-starter to lead our Education & Learning Team.
The Faith & Belief Forum has worked for over 20 years to build good relations between people of all faiths and beliefs, and to create a society where difference is celebrated. Our vision is a connected and supportive society where people of different faiths, beliefs and cultures have strong and lasting relations.
To achieve this vision, we create spaces in schools, universities, workplaces, and the wider community where people from different faiths, beliefs or cultures can meet and learn from each other. We reach over 16,000 people a year in the UK through our programmes. This kind of direct contact between people is often the most effective way to tackle prejudice and challenge stereotypes – and create understanding and trust between people.
In this role, you will be driving our organisational efforts to ensure learners are equipped with the skills and tools to influence relations between anybody, regardless of their faith, belief, or culture. You will ensure successful delivery and growth of impactful programmes, online and face-to-face, within a new, post-pandemic context.

At our most recent staff survey, 100% of staff said believe in the aims of the Faith & Belief Forum and 100% enjoy the work they do.
The deadline to apply is Tuesday 6 July at 9am. If shortlisted, you will be invited to attend an interview on either Tuesday 20 or Wednesday 21 July via Zoom. Ideally you will be available to start ASAP.
As we look to expand our work geographically, we would also welcome applications from across the UK including regions such as Northern England and Scotland.
We believe in order to effectively serve our beneficiaries; our work must be influenced by a broad range of voices. Therefore, we actively encourage applications from people who are currently underrepresented in our staff team. This would include BAME candidates and those who identify as Sikh, Hindu, Buddhist, and Jain. We celebrate difference and are committed to creating a working environment where everyone is included.
Unfortunately, we cannot accept applications from individuals without the right to work in the UK.
