What we're looking for

The Forth Reserves team is a small team who manage five reserves across Central Scotland. With limited staff time and an increasing amount of office we really need additional support to help run our office and therefore our reserves more efficiently. The main task will be data entry to update RSPB systems but may also include answering phones, dealing with deliveries, ordering stationary, filing, meeting prep, and other office based tasks.

The skills you need

You don't need any experience of working in an office but good administrative and organisations skills are essential. Good computer skills and knowledge of Microsoft office is desirable (training can be provided for any systems that are unfamiliar including RSPB in house systems). Good communications skills and a friendly, approachable and patient attitude would be helpful.

Your time

1 to 2 days per month, flexible
All year round

What's in it for you?

We can help you refresh old or develop new office skills as well as giving you invaluable insight into the workings of Europe's largest conservation charity. Whether you are looking to add to your CV or just have some spare time on your hands this is a great opportunity to help the RSPB protect our wildlife.
