Sussex Wildlife Trust is seeking an Administration and Communications Officer to work with the Wild Coast Sussex Project Team.
Sussex Wildlife Trust
Sussex Wildlife Trust is a conservation charity for everyone who cares about nature in Sussex. We focus on protecting the wonderfully rich natural life that is found across our towns, countryside and coast. By working alongside local people we create opportunities for us all to connect with nature and for nature to thrive in even the most unlikely places. Together we can make sure that future generations living in Sussex will be able to enjoy the sense of wonder and well-being that nature offers.
Wild Coast Sussex
Wild Coast Sussex will inspire Sussex communities to care for the marine environment & enable them to protect their local coast and sea. Sussex Wildlife Trust is the lead partner on this exciting new project with Marine Conservation Society (MCS), Sussex Inshore Fisheries and Conservation Authority (IFCA) and Brighton SEA LIFE. Our partnership will champion the rare and precious marine wildlife found locally, highlighting the extraordinary kelp forests, seahorses and rays once abundant in Sussex which could recover and thrive if given a second chance.
The role will provide administration and communications support for the delivery of the Wild Coast Sussex Project.
The role requires high quality administrative and communication skills alongside a passion for and understanding of marine conservation. The role will involve writing content suitable for different audiences, including young adults (16-25yrs), across various channels, such as website, social media, print and online marketing materials for the project. The role will assist the project partnership by providing high quality administration support including meeting secretariat, project reporting and volunteer and event administration.
You will be an experienced professional, with proven high quality communication and administrative skills. You will have excellent IT skills, and previous experience of working professionally in social media is desirable. An understanding of Sussex coastal communities and marine conservation is an advantage. Excellent interpersonal and communication skills are vital in this role, as is the ability to work both independently and as part of a team.
Occasionally, you will be required to work evenings and weekends.
