Job Description

Executive Support Officer (Part Time)
Vauxhall, London (initially home based in line with COVID guidelines)

About Us

Established and mainly funded by the UK Government, Holocaust Memorial Day Trust (HMDT) is a charity that promotes and supports Holocaust Memorial Day (HMD) in the UK.

Holocaust Memorial Day (27 January) is the day for everyone to remember the six million Jews murdered during the Holocaust, alongside the millions of other people killed under Nazi Persecution and in subsequent genocides in Cambodia, Rwanda, Bosnia and Darfur. It is a time when we seek to learn the lessons of the past and recognise that genocide does not just take place on its own - it’s a steady process which can begin if discrimination, racism and hatred are not checked and prevented.

HMD is for everyone. Each year across the UK, thousands of people come together to learn more about the past and take action to create a safer future. We know they learn more, empathise more and do more.

Together we bear witness for those who endured genocide and honour the survivors and all those whose lives were changed beyond recognition.

We are currently looking for a part-time Executive Support Officer to join our team in an initially home-based role which will be based from our offices in Vauxhall once COVID guidelines allow.

- 25 days' holiday (pro rata’d to 15 days)
