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.

Reporting to the Woodland Trust Operations Administration Team Leader, this key role will support our largely out-posted teams providing a high quality, wide ranging administrative support function facilitating effective use of corporate systems.

This is a Hybrid working role, where you’ll work part of your time at home and part of the time from our Regional Office based in Perth, Scotland. Our Hybrid Working Policy is flexible and the frequency of time spent in your contracted office will vary across teams and job roles.

Passionate about our aims, you'll have previous administrative experience from answering queries via email and telephone to booking events and managing calendars. This is a busy, hands on role, so you’ll need to be enthusiastic and proactive with a positive approach as well as being able to prioritise a busy workload.

You'll be an excellent communicator and planner, with the ability to organise and manage a varied and busy workload. Flexible, positive and a problem solver, you'll also be discreet and able to manage confidential information.

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 want to reflect and represent the full richness of diversity in the UK. Fewer of our employees are Black, Asian or minority ethnic; disabled; from lower socio-economic backgrounds or under 25; so we are particularly keen to receive your application if you are from one or more of these groups. We can also discuss anything you may need to achieve your full potential at any stage of the process. We assess your application solely on your demonstrated suitability for the job. Nothing else.

We reserve the right to close this vacancy early if we receive a high volume of suitable applications. If you are interested, we'd encourage you to submit your application as early as possible.
