Contract Type: Permanent

Location: Fauna & Flora International, Cambridge, UK. Current policy offers partial remote working within the UK.

Founded in 1903, Fauna & Flora International (FFI) is the world’s longest established international conservation organisation. Our vision is to create a sustainable future for the planet where biodiversity is conserved by the people living closest to it. We aim to do this through the conservation of threatened species and ecosystems worldwide, choosing solutions that are sustainable, based on sound science and take account of human needs. We have become a trusted entity in the world of conservation. Today FFI is active in over 40 countries.

This is an exciting time to join FFI’s Statutory Funding Team. The range of donors we work with, and the number of funding proposals we work on, is increasing rapidly as FFI’s global programmes grow.

We are seeking an individual with a proactive, organised approach to work to provide administrative support for high value and complex proposals, potentially for all regions and cross-cutting programmes, providing great exposure to international conservation approaches.

You will have excellent interpersonal skills and be comfortable working with teams across FFI on different projects. You will also have excellent writing skills and will use these to develop a wide range of internal and external communications related to statutory funding.

Reporting to the Head of Statutory Funding, you’ll help the whole team function effectively by maintaining core work planners, tracking tools, and internal communications, and providing wider administrative support for the team as requested.

You will be a strong team player and enjoy working in a deadline-driven environment where the ability to respond swiftly to changing organisational and team needs is paramount. With a proactive and pre-emptive approach to your work, you will seek to add value and work with minimal supervision. Fluency in written and spoken English is essential. Skills in languages relevant to FFI’s programme are highly desirable. Sensitivity to the different working environments and capacities of colleagues around the world is also essential.

In return, the role offers the opportunity to work within a ground-breaking and entrepreneurial organisation, at the forefront of global conservation, with opportunity to apply your skills and expertise where appropriate. In addition, FFI offers a generous pension contribution, attractive annual leave allowance and life insurance.

Our offices are located in The David Attenborough Building in central Cambridge, just a few minutes’ walk from glorious historic buildings and museums, the picturesque River Cam, the central market and shopping centre, and a host of cafés and restaurants.
