About our organisation

The Soil Association, formed in 1946, is the only UK charity that works across the spectrum of human health, the environment and animal welfare. That’s because we cannot tackle these issues in isolation.

We campaign for change, support farming innovation, serve healthy food in communities, champion and grow the organic market, and protect forests. We couldn't do any of this without our supporters, partners, donors and dedicated staff. We make a difference in the world where it’s needed the most.

About the opportunity

We are looking for a bright, hardworking, enthusiastic administrator to join our busy team. The role is varied and challenging but provides a great learning experience in a friendly working environment. The role is supporting the certification teams with daily tasks, including sending email reminders, responding to general queries from clients and new companies, data entry and logging tasks for the certification teams.

About you

You will have:

  • Administrative experience and strong customer service skills.
  • Experience in using databases and an excellent telephone manner.
  • You will be proactive and work with others to resolve queries and provide excellent customer service.
  • You will enjoy being a support to the certification teams and ideally be interested in a career within organic certification; experience in this area is desirable but not essential.
  • You will be able to organise and prioritise your daily tasks, enjoy working as part of a team, assist colleagues, and share ideas.
  • You will be interested in learning about organic certification across all schemes and the work of the Soil Association.
