For over 50 years, the Scottish Wildlife Trust has worked with its members, partners and supporters in pursuit of its vision of healthy, resilient ecosystems across Scotland’s land and seas. We are proud to have the support of more than 40,000 members, 1,000 volunteers and 20 local (volunteer led) groups.

You’ll supervise, lead and motivate the Membership Care Team (currently consisting 2 employees and a range of volunteers) in order to manage, maintain and develop the Trust’s Membership and Fundraising records to ensure supporter satisfaction and loyalty.

We are looking for a positive and proactive Administrator with previous line management experience who shares our commitment to improving processes and providing an excellent service at all times. Numerate and IT literate, if you are the ideal candidate, you’ll also be able to demonstrate good working knowledge of Raiser’s Edge or a similar customer relations database package.

You should have 3 Higher level equivalent qualifications in relevant subjects or have relevant work experience. Ideally, you will also have some knowledge of legislation relating to Data Protection, HM Revenue & Customs and Charities Law in relation to the operation of databases and associated procedures.
