Does this sound like you?
We are looking for a dynamic, initiative-driven and superbly organised team player to help us out with managing the administration side of our swiftly growing charity. Food poverty is a bigger issue than ever, and we’re determined to do our part to help end it. As part of our team, you’ll be confident enough to deal with a huge range of people at every level, articulate and diplomatic and with a naturally positive outlook.
This is a very varied role, so you’ll be naturally flexible in your approach and happy to help out with anything from moving chairs to manning our stand at a country fair. As you’ll also be managing our day to day financial administration too, you’ll need a strong eye for detail and a process-driven brain. Finally, it’s imperative that you’re intuitive and a quick learner; confident to ask questions until you’ve understood something but then happy to go away and do it yourself.
As this is a home-based job you will be highly organised with a head for creating order, innovative and a real self-starter. We’re looking for someone who’ll bring new and fresh ideas on how we can develop and improve our processes, with the wherewithal to put those improvements into action. We’re looking for an organisational dynamo; someone that can take an idea, go away and come back with a decisive plan.
We’d love it if you came from a charity background, but your skills and personality are the most important thing. What’s crucial is that you’ve had at least five years’ experience in a senior level administrative role and are strong in the whole Microsoft Office suite – Outlook, Teams, Word, Excel and PowerPoint. If you’ve worked with Xero, that’s a big advantage, and familiarity with Salesforce, Mailchimp and WordPress would also be a bonus, but not essential.
Who we are
The Country Food Trust is a national charity with rural roots that produces meals and donates them to people in need. We recently reached our target of one million meals in our first five years and are driving ahead with an ambitious plan for our next five.
