Q&B is seeking a new Clerk from July 2024 to take it into a period of opportunity as a new project emerges to establish a Quaker Credit Union.  

If you are an experienced business person, workplace leader or senior manager, this is an opportunity to take your leadership and management skills to a new level.


Q&B is a registered charity and Quaker-recognised body committed to advancing Quaker values in business, finance and the workplace. 

Under the guidance and commitment of a group of members, our self-governing group has survived the Covid pandemic and the dramatic change in the economic and business world in recent years.

Most of our officers and role-holders are reaching the end of their term of service. There exists an opportunity for a new group to reassess and redirect Q&B. The role of the clerk will be critical in managing the discernment process.


To engage with the ongoing challenge of integrating Quaker values of simplicity, peace, integrity, community, equality and sustainability into the traditional governance and conduct of business.

To help businesses operate with a moral compass and to develop a sense of social responsibility.

To learn, practice and promote the Quaker practice of discernment known as the Quaker Business Method.  

Who we are 

Q&B is a 25-year-old Quaker-recognised membership organisation. We are a non-hierarchical organisation run on Quaker lines by and for our members. Our success depends on members' voluntary commitment, expertise and vision. Around a third of Q&B members are committed Quakers.
