Your role in saving nature
We are recruiting two new Principal Administrators to support the Deputy Directors of Income and Engagement within the Fundraising and Communications Directorate. This role will provide first line response and dedicated PA support to enable the Deputy Director of Income to carry out their role as efficiently as possible.
You'll develop a strong understanding of the requirements of this senior leadership role to be able to pre-empt and manage demands. You'll see potential issues on the horizon and be proactive in solving them as well as dealing with confidential and sensitive information appropriately.
You'll be motivated to work as part of the network of PA's across the RSPB, providing comprehensive administration support and making links across the Directorates. Developing and establishing relationships with colleagues at all levels will really motivate you along with representing the RSPB with external partners, agencies and other third parties. Great communication skills via phone, email and face to face will therefore be key.
There'll be large and small-scale events to arrange, travel to book, financial processes to support and meetings to attend. The day will bring variety and pace, so you'll be hungry to develop new ways to do things, look for efficiencies and improvements and bring an organised approach to competing priorities.
Above all else, you'll be an advocate for saving nature. Nature's in big trouble - the climate crisis and loss of habitat are pushing some of our best loved species towards extinction. We won't let nature fall silent. This role is your chance to help in that mission. What do you say?
Where you'll be working:
You'll be working at the RSPB Headquarters in Sandy, Bedfordshire - imagine a site of more than 500 passionate, fascinating people, set in the middle of a nature reserve. There's a forest to explore, and a heathland that's great for lunchtime walks. Plus, the on-site restaurant serves breakfast and lunch every day of the week.
Closing date: 25 October 2019
