We’re looking for an enthusiastic Network Support Assistant to join us on a fixed-term contract. The role sits within the friendly Campaign Activism Team that provides key expertise to help grow, deepen and diversify our network of environmental justice activists. The Network Support Assistant plays a key role by supporting our network of volunteer Climate Action Groups and Friends of the Earth local groups across England, Wales and Northern Ireland.
As Network Support Assistant, you’ll be engaging first-hand with volunteer groups, providing advice and guidance to help them campaign on local environmental and social justice issues and take part in Friends of the Earth’s priority campaigns. You will work with colleagues across the organisation to coordinate responses to activists, help manage the network database, and provide administrative support to ensure groups have the training and resources they need to campaign effectively.
This is a perfect opportunity for anyone wishing to begin a career in the not-for-profit sector and wanting to put their skills towards protecting people and planet. It requires an understanding of grassroots campaigning, excellent communication skills, and some experience providing administrative assistance, whether in a paid or voluntary capacity. If that’s you, and you’re a driven, organised, detail-oriented person who likes to come up with solutions to problems, we’d love to hear from you.
