Administrative Support Officer

Role: Administrative Support Officer

The full-time equivalent salary for this post is based on Executive Officer (EO) grade within the range of £24,918 to £26,584 per year.

The National Forest Company (NFC) has a new opportunity for an experienced Administrative Support Officer to join its team based at Moira, near Ashby de la Zouch, Leicestershire.

The National Forest is about so much more than trees. It is pioneering new ways of working to reconnect people and businesses with nature and create a place to grow together.  The last two decades have seen the NFC drive forward the vision for the National Forest, taking it from a leap of faith to the success story we see today: a restored forest landscape; an emerging visitor destination; and the active support of local communities.  But there is so much more to do.

This is an exciting time for us as we embark on the next phase of our ambitious strategy for the Forest.  We are now looking for an experienced Administrative Support Officer. You’ll be working with our Operations Team supporting the successful delivery of NFC’s forest creation programmes and other projects, administering our grants processes and organising events.

You’ll have excellent customer service skills and enjoy the challenge of a varied job where no two days are the same. Working within our Corporate Services team you will also be able to help us with the continuous improvement of our processes and systems, including our customer service function.

Above all, you will share our passion for the National Forest, building a sustainable future for the environment, economy and people across this area of central England. If you feel excited by the prospect of working with us, we would love to hear from you.

Closing date for applications: 12 noon 24 June 2021.
