About the role

We are seeking a Programme Assistant to support the Ethiopian Wolf Conservation Programme. EWCP is one of the Wildlife Conservation Research Unit (WildCRU) flagship long-term research and conservation programmes. WildCRU is a large research group within the Department of Biology, with over 60 staff and students (and many more local field support staff).

About you

You will work closely with the EWCP Director and team members to provide pro- active support in a range of administrative matters. You will ensure effective administration of EWCP projects and will have responsibility for managing day- to-day EWCP financial and administrative activities at Oxford, liaising with EWCP offices in Ethiopia. You will monitor EWCP online project trackers, communicate with field personnel as required, and enter information into the relevant trackers.

You will demonstrate proven experience in administrative skills, consistently meeting agreed objectives and taking personal responsibility for getting things done. You will have excellent communication skills, particularly for communicating with staff in Ethiopia and Oxford. You will demonstrate strong financial skills, software proficiency, and the ability to manage and prioritise your own workload working to strict deadlines.

Although the role is based at Biology Research Administration Building, you will attend meetings in Tubney House. Willingness to occasionally travel to project offices in Ethiopia is also desirable.
