The UK’s leading interfaith organisation is looking for an organised programmes officer.

 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.
