The Woodland Trust is the UK’s leading woodland conservation charity. We want to see a world where trees and woods thrive for people and nature. The Trust engages and inspires people to make their difference tackling the nature and climate crisis helping protect, restore and create our vital woods and trees.

A fantastic opportunity for a People and Payroll Administrator to join an expanding People Team at The Woodland Trust. The role of People and Payroll Administrator will involve assisting with payroll processing, tracking and advising on probationary periods and absences as well as creating contracts of employment.
Alongside this, there will be administration tasks such as monitoring email inboxes, ordering equipment and assisting with reports and spreadsheets.
This role is hybrid and therefore will be split between remote working and the Grantham office. There will be an expectation of attendance in the office around twice a month depending on the needs of the team.

You’ll be a confident administrator with strong knowledge of Microsoft office, in particular Word and Excel. You will have he ability to deal with sensitive and confidential information appropriately along with being able to demonstrate good communication and organisational skills. Experience in a similar role or in HR is desirable as well working towards or having a CIPD qualification or similar.

There’s no other organisation like the Woodland Trust. Joining the team you will be making your contribution to tackling the nature and climate crisis. In return, we recognise and value our people. You'll have our full support, training and opportunities for professional development, along with a contributory pension, life assurance, good holiday allowance and the opportunity to work flexibly from home.

At the Woodland Trust, we believe everyone deserves to have their lives enriched by trees and woods.
We also believe that our organisation should reflect and represent the full richness of human diversity in terms of background, identity, ability and circumstance. As groups of people currently underrepresented as Woodland Trust employees, we are particularly keen to receive your application if you are Black, Asian or minority ethnic, disabled or under 25. We are measuring our success in redressing this.
We are open to discussion of any adjustments or flexible working arrangements you may need to achieve your full potential at any stage of the process, and if you are successful in gaining a position with us, during employment.
We promise the only thing we assess within your application is how you have demonstrated your suitability for the job, and nothing else.

We reserve the right to close this vacancy early if we find the suitable candidate before the closing date.
