This is a great opportunity to use your experience of providing the full range of senior leadership executive support to help save our planet by supporting the Executive Directors of Operations and People and Culture, their teams and trustees, at WWF UK. Join us as Executive Assistant and you will help them create a high performing organisation that is agile, dynamic, innovative, inclusive and focused on saving our world.
As Executive Assistant you will play a proactive role in ensuring the Director’s offices run smoothly and their effectiveness is maximised by providing high quality logistical and administrative support. This will involve managing diaries, coordinating travel arrangements, organising meetings and preparing documentation, including papers, presentations and briefings. You will also maintain internal relationships, oversee stakeholder communications and represent the Directors at meetings as needed. You will also prepare contracts, manage budgets and help with financial processing.
For this role, you must have significant experience in an Executive Assistant or similar position. This will have given you strong secretarial and administration capabilities. You will be good at operating in a fast-paced environment and prioritising changing needs. Able to work independently but also as part of a team you will possess excellent communication and interpersonal skills too. You will also have an eye for detail, the ability to work to tight deadlines and a ‘can-do’ attitude. Highly organised and delivery focused, you will be a proficient user of MSOffice and comfortable overseeing internal systems and processes.
