Job description

We are currently looking to recruit three Senior Administrators to support the Senior Leadership Team in the People Directorate and will provide first line response and dedicated PA and administration support to enable these Senior Leaders to carry out their role as efficiently as possible.

  • Head of Volunteering & Employee Engagement – Full Time 37.5 hours per week

You’ll develop a strong understanding of the requirements of their roles to be able to pre-empt and manage demands on their time. 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 Senior Administrators and PA’s across the RSPB, providing comprehensive administrative support and making links across the Directorates. Developing and establishing relationships with colleagues at all levels will be an essential part of the role alongside representing the RSPB with external partners, agencies and other third parties. Excellent communication skills via phone, email, video calls, and face to face will therefore be key.

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 play your part in saving nature. This role is your chance to help in that mission. What do you say?
