Governance & Legal Assistant

Salary: Circa £22,000 per annum

Start Date: As soon as possible

Contract Type: Permanent

Location: Fauna & Flora International, Cambridge, UK. (Some remote working may be considered)

The Governance & Legal Assistant is a new role within FFI, joining a small, friendly and welcoming team.  You will provide effective and responsive assistance to that team, thereby supporting FFI to comply with its governance and statutory obligations, internal policies and procedures and funder requirements.

You will be an experienced administrator with meticulous attention to detail and a diligent and methodical approach to your work. You will have gained your experience in a similar, relevant setting, ideally one in which you have already developed a level of knowledge and understanding of governance processes, the review of legal documents and handling of confidential information and personal data, which you are eager to build upon.

You will possess excellent organisational and time management skills, together with interpersonal and communication skills which will enable you to build positive, productive working relationships with colleagues, not just in the UK but across our 20 countries of operation. You will be calm under pressure and have the ability to balance competing priorities and demands. Excellent IT skills and a desire to learn new systems, such as FFI’s Microsoft SharePoint based intranet (myFFI) and FFI’s customised online finance and project management system are also essential.

In return, this role provides the opportunity to develop and build on your existing knowledge and administrative experience and to learn about governance, legal and compliance structures within an international, impactful and ground-breaking organisation, at the forefront of global conservation.  In addition, FFI offers a generous pension contribution, attractive annual leave allowance and life insurance.

Our offices are located in central Cambridge, just a few minutes’ walk from glorious historic buildings and museums, the picturesque River Cam, the central market and shopping centre, and a host of cafés and restaurants.
