Jewish Renaissance is seeking the services of an ADMINISTRATOR and a BOOKKEEPER to cover maternity leave for 4 months, and possibly longer, starting 7th January 2019.

You will be working for a dynamic magazine and be part of a lively and enthusiastic team. The work is part-time with flexible hours and based at your home.


The major part of your work will be maintaining our database of subscribers and donors to include data entry and making selections for our mailhouse and for inhouse users. You will also be the first line of contact with subscribers, taking calls and making them, including following up those late to renew and lapsed subscribers. You will also organise distribution of the magazine, keep the office supplies stocked and manage all vendor accounts.

Do the following qualities apply to you?

  • You are accurate and very well-organised

  • You are familiar with current computer technology, and are experienced in using Excel and a CRM platform, ideally Salesforce

  • You have a confident, outgoing and friendly telephone manner

You will be working mainly from home at hours to suit your other commitments but you will need to pay fortnightly visits to our office in Finchley Road, and on an occasional basis for team meetings and to cover holidays. You will need to be available occasionally on Sunday mornings and/or early evenings, the best time to make calls. 

We envisage that an average of 10 hours per week will be required but there will be a variation in the work required per week depending on the quarterly magazine schedule (late March/early April will be busiest). 


In addition we are looking for a bookkeeper, to process incoming and outgoing payments, payroll and pensions, who has up-to-date experience in using Quickbooks (Online Plus is the version we use). This job can be done entirely from home. Approximately 5 hours per week will be needed.

Combining the two roles will be ideal for a candidate that meets the specifications of both jobs.

These jobs will be on a freelance basis and paid at a rate of £15 per hour.

Please email a CV and application letter to Lorraine Sheridan,

The closing date is 15 November 2018.
