Work for us

Our team

We are a London Living Wage employer and have achieved the gold standard Investors in People award.

We have about 30 staff and offer a range of employment benefits as well as the opportunity to work for a well known and respected non profit organisation.

Benefits include:

  • 25 days annual leave and additional  leave days over the festive period;
  • continual professional development – both in house and external training relevant to your role;
  • up to two weeks paid study leave per year;
  • an employer pension contribution of 6%;
  • cycle to work scheme;
  • a summer staff away day and a festive party.

Current opportunities:


The opportunity has come up to work front-of-house at Hackney CVS. It’s a busy role and no two days will ever be the same! We are looking for someone with excellent people skills, who is good with computers, and wants to help the groups and service users we support as we work towards a Fairer Hackney. If you’re reliable and have good attention to detail then we’d like to hear from you.

We are recruiting for a receptionist to work for two days a week, on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. The work will be from 9.30am to 5.30pm each day, with an unpaid hour off for lunch. The hourly rate for this work is the London Living Wage – at the moment this is £10.20 an hour plus £0.18 an hour holiday pay, and will rise in November when the new Living Wage rates are published.

Ideally we would like to recruit the same person for both days.  At the moment we are recruiting until at least end March 2019. There may be opportunities to do additional work in the evenings and at weekends, and the work may be extended after the end of March.

The deadline for completed applications is 5pm on Thursday 15 November, and interviews will take place on Tuesday 20 November.
