Conciliation Resources is seeking a Fundraising and Administration Officer to support a restructured Fundraising team. If you are seeking a worthwhile challenge, have an interest in fundraising and would relish working in a fast paced but friendly team then this role could be for you.

  • Experience of writing for different purposes and presenting information clearly.
  • Cross-cultural sensitivity and appreciation.
  • Excellent English verbal and writing skills (essential), with the ability to communicate and summarise complex information clearly and persuasively.
  • Strong interpersonal and relationship-building skills, with the ability to work collaboratively, listen to and influence others.
  • Common sense approach, with a positive attitude and the ability to adapt to an evolving business and working environment.
  • Strong organisational and planning skills with the ability to manage a varied workload and coordinate processes involving multiple people/teams within short deadlines.
  • Research and analytical skills, with the ability to present information in an accessible way.
  • Good computer and IT skills, preferably in a Mac environment.
  • Excellent command of Excel.
  • Creative, flexible character and open to new ideas.
  • Commitment to Conciliation Resources’ goals, values, work and approach.
