Who we are

The Royal Society for Asian Affairs was founded in 1901 as the Central Asian Society. Its journal, Asian Affairs has been published continuously since 1914.

The RSAA’s objective is to advance knowledge of Asia through its worldwide networks, its public events, its publications and its support to research. It is an open, active and internatiuonal network for informed debate about Asia, engaging experts, policy makers and the wider public with experience, analysis and scholarship.


The role

You will have a strong background in charity or educational communications, marketing or public relations, including leadership roles and will be familiar with membership organisations. Your role will be to help guide the organisation’s staff, oversee its governance, help to maximise its impact and support its fundraising.

You will be familiar with relevant sector codes of practice and with the GDPR. You might be a member of CIM, CharityComms, IABC or CIPR, but none of these is essential.

You will have an enthusiasm for helping an organisation with a long history to position itself to deliver its charitable objectives in a contemporary context and to appeal to early- and mid-career professionals across a wide range of sectors including government, academia, business and journalism.
