Exeter Humanists aim to provide a range of activities for non-religious living in Exeter to meet, socialise, campaign, raise awareness of humanism, participate in local civic life and support each other. The Local Section represents Humanists UK and the local humanist community at public events and in public forums.

We are seeking a dedicated and driven Events Manager to join our team, to assist in delivering the strategic aims of Exeter Humanists.
