The Wildlife Trusts is a grassroots movement of 850,000 members, 38,000 volunteers and 2,800 staff across the UK dedicated to our vision and driven by our beliefs. 

This is a time of immense change, as people wake up to the dual climate and biodiversity crises are at risk. More than ever we need to inspire our audiences to value wildlife and the work of The Wildlife Trusts and to take action.

An exciting opportunity has arisen for a proactive Administrator to join us to provide support for our funded programmes.

Working with our Grants Team, you will provide a range of administrative services including responding to internal and external requests, managing meetings bookings and travel arrangements and coordinating the filing system. You will also work with the team to collect information to collate into detailed reports, liaising with the funder to support this. You will also be required to carry out other administrative duties to support the Grants Team as required.

To be successful in this role you will be a confident communicator with the ability to work with a wide variety of audiences. You will be able to evidence proficiency in general administrative processes including managing information systems.

Due to the nature of the role it is essential that you are organised, flexible and can work well from your own initiative to hit deadlines.

About us:

There are 36 Wildlife Trusts in England, four in Wales and Trusts for Scotland, Northern Ireland, Alderney and the Isle of Man. The Wildlife Trusts have an unmatched presence on the ground helping to inspire millions of people about wildlife every year and managing nearly 100,000 hectares of land. Being part of The Wildlife Trust movement enables you to make a real difference and we look for people who share our values.

We value courage, respect, integrity, trust and responsibility. Whilst we are passionate in promoting our aims, we are not judgemental, and we are inclusive. Our society is divided, and The Wildlife Trusts want to reduce, not increase, that division.
