Do you want to play a role in improving canine welfare whilst using your administrative skills?
We are looking for a Research Team Administrator (fixed term, maternity cover) to help us ensure the smooth running of the Dogs Trust Research Team. The team of researchers at Dogs Trust work on a wide variety of diverse projects.
Dogs Trust is the largest dog welfare charity in the UK with a nationwide network of rehoming centres and charity shops. Last year, Dogs Trust centres cared for over 9,000 dogs; we never put a healthy dog down.
The Canine Behaviour & Research (CBR) department delivers the technical resources and skills to enable Dogs Trust staff to provide the best possible support for the dogs within its care and evidence-based advice to external stakeholders in order to improve canine welfare worldwide.
In this varied and interesting role, you will be supporting delivery of research team projects by becoming a trusted ambassador for the team, working closely with Dogs Trust researchers and the wider CBR senior team.
As someone with an interest and experience in a behaviour, welfare or research environment, and a commitment to the work of Dogs Trust, you will have the opportunity to contribute to the future of dog welfare by using your excellent administrative skills to ensure the smooth running of the team.
With strong attention to detail and organisational skills you will be dealing with multiple administrative projects, preparation of documents within short timeframes, minute taking, and ensuring all team outputs are reliably logged and up to date. Your well developed communication skills will be required on a daily basis to keep on top of changing priorities and a heavy workload, and in professional correspondence. You are a self-starter who is able to identify where processes can be improved and are able to execute such changes with minimal input from others.
