Have you got the organisational skills to help save the planet? Are you proactive, personable and passionate about solving the climate emergency? Do you find that you actually quite like a well-ordered spreadsheet? Could you be the new Administration and Finance Officer at Stop Climate Chaos Scotland?

With awareness increasing of the climate emergency, grass roots campaigns spreading, and the UN climate talks COP26 coming to Glasgow, it’s an exciting time to be at the centre of Scotland's civil society coalition campaigning on climate change.

Stop Climate Chaos Scotland are seeking an Administration and Finance Officer to support the Coalition Co-ordinator and help to organise the work of the coalition including membership administration, setting up, attending and minuting internal and external meetings; assisting in the delivery of campaign tasks, raising and paying invoices and budget monitoring.

This new, fixed term post would suit someone who is naturally very well-organised and able to work efficiently and to tight deadlines. You will have an eye for detail, and enjoy the challenge of organising meetings for our board and working groups involving busy diaries and keeping track of hectic day-to-day schedules and keeping track of the budget.

We are seeking someone with administrative and finance experience, excellent communication and organisational skills and computer literacy (experience working with financial software could be useful). You'll be great at building effective relationships with people at all levels, both within our member organisations, and with external stakeholders.

SCCS are hosted within the busy and friendly office of one of our member organisations and you will have daily contact with the members of our coalition, and potential members – from development and environment charities, to faith groups, unions and community groups. We are looking for someone who will take a proactive, flexible and pragmatic approach. You'll be positive and solutions-focused and astute at juggling a variety of tasks. If this sounds like you – we need to hear from you.
