Salary Range: £21,000 – £23,500 per annum

Start Date: As soon as possible

Duration of Contract: Permanent

Location: Fauna & Flora International, Cambridge, with international travel as required.

Current policy offers partial remote working with the UK

This is an exciting time to join Fauna & Flora’s Trusts & Foundations team. The range of donors we work with, and the number of funding proposals we work on, is increasing rapidly as our global programmes grow. We are seeking an individual with a proactive, organised approach to work, to provide administrative support for high value and complex proposals, across project regions and cross-cutting programmes.

You will have excellent interpersonal skills and be comfortable working remotely with colleagues, on many different projects and varying country contexts. You will also have excellent writing skills and will use these to assist in developing materials and communications relevant to our donor audiences.

Reporting to the Senior Trusts & Foundations Manager, you’ll help the whole team function effectively through administrative support, research, capturing and organising knowledge and data centrally, writing relevant internal and external communications, critical review of outgoing proposals/applications and reports, and providing wider support for the team as and when requested.

You will be a strong team player and enjoy working in a deadline-driven environment where the ability to respond swiftly to changing organisational and team needs is paramount. With a proactive approach to your work, you will seek to add value and work with minimal supervision. Fluency in written and spoken English is essential. Skills in languages relevant to Fauna & Flora’s programmes are highly desirable. Sensitivity to the different working environments and capacities of colleagues around the world is also essential.

In return, the role offers the opportunity to work within a ground-breaking and entrepreneurial organisation, at the forefront of global conservation, with opportunity to apply your skills and expertise where appropriate. In addition, Fauna & Flora offers a generous pension contribution, attractive annual leave allowance and life insurance.

Our offices are located in The David Attenborough Building 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.
