Founded in 1903, Fauna & Flora International (FFI) is the world’s longest established international conservation organisation. Our vision is to create a sustainable future for the planet where biodiversity is conserved by the people living closest to it. We aim to do this through the conservation of threatened species and ecosystems worldwide, choosing solutions that are sustainable, based on sound science and take account of human needs. We have become a trusted entity in the world of conservation. Today FFI is active in over 40 countries.

Our HR Department in Cambridge provides a comprehensive generalist HR service across the organisation.  We support around 110 UK-based employees and 20 international expatriate employees.  In addition, we provide HR support to FFI offices around the world, who directly contract a further 250 national staff.  Our Department is comprised of a Head of HR, Senior HR Adviser and HR Administrator and we are supported by an external agency providing UK payroll services.

This is an exciting opportunity to gain real breadth of HR exposure in an international organisation to further your HR career.  We are offering a diverse role with a wide range of activities.  These include: dealing with routine HR queries, providing a full administration service across the employee life cycle, managing and developing the HR pages of our internal online platform and maintaining and developing our HR information system.

You will either have direct HR or highly relevant experience. With excellent administration skills, you will be highly organised, methodical in your approach to work and have meticulous attention to detail.  Keen to take ownership of your work, you will be proactive and able to work autonomously. 

Your excellent interpersonal and communication skills will enable you to build positive, productive work relationships with colleagues and ensure that our HR Department remains a trusted and approachable service for managers and employees.  The ability to maintain a high degree of confidentiality is essential, as is fluency in spoken and written English.

You will enjoy working in a dynamic and fast-paced environment, where the ability to respond swiftly to changing organisational and team needs is paramount.  In return, we offer the opportunity to work for a ground-breaking organisation at the forefront of global conservation, with generous pension contribution, attractive annual leave allowance, life insurance and salary exchange schemes, including Childcare Vouchers and Cycle to Work Scheme.
