• Manage, organise, review and share key information and statistics to inform wider decision-making

• Help protect and add value to our charitable funds by accessing efficiencies in how we work across multiple organisations and Alliances, helping to link external funding opportunities to suitable rainforest conservation workstreams

• Nurture effective working relationships with key stakeholders

• Be an excellent team player when working alongside UK Rainforest Network and National Trust colleagues, sharing knowledge and information to create great working relationships

Who we’re looking for
