NEON’s programmes (trainings, residentials, and ad hoc support we give the movement) and NEON’s operations (how we run the organisation internally) are two sides of the same coin for us. If our operations systems are excellent it streamlines how we run programmes and lets the programme teams focus on impact, and if our programmes run excellently it creates a lot less work for operations and lets us focus on thinking radically about our work and creating brilliant systems. That’s why these roles are set up to do both of those things. Our Programme and Operations Assistants are the backbone of the day-to-day running of NEON. Because of how much we value this type of work (which we recognise is often done by women and women of colour in particular and has been undervalued in our sector) we want to resource it properly. As a result, you’ll be one of 3 assistants - which we hope means you’ll be a supportive cohort for each other. Please download the application pack for more details and to apply.


Hybrid working - London and remote. Our flexible working policy requires everyone to be in the office roughly 25% of the time as a minimum because building in-person relationships is important to us (that could be one week a month, or a day or two a week), but you’re welcome to be there more



Contract type



Full-time, which for NEON is 28 hours a week. This can be done over 4 or 5 days, that’s totally up to you. Hours are generally flexible, with some core meetings everyone has to be at.


7.5% employer matched pension after probation; flexible hours and hybrid working across our office and remotely; a 28-hour week with no change to pay; 20 days holiday per year (plus bank holidays and Christmas break when the office is shut); generous staff development package; a caring and learning culture that takes anti-oppression seriously; progressive parenting leave policy; sabbatical leave after 4 years at NEON; and more radical policies to come
