Are you a skilled administrator who enjoys working with people of all ages and backgrounds, and welcome the opportunity to help look after the Yorkshire Dales National Park? 

We are looking for someone to help us administer the Authority’s volunteer services (including our long-term volunteers Dales Volunteers), and our education and events service. This includes a wide variety of key tasks including assisting in running our guided walks programme, organising our presence at shows and processing volunteer expense claims, ordering goods and monitoring budgets as well as producing e-newsletters and reports. As the first point of contact for volunteers you will also assist the Volunteers Development Officer in managing our service and ensuring its smooth running.

You must have experience of carrying out standard administrative duties and have good customer service skills. Excellent IT skills using standard Office programmes are also essential, along with an aptitude to quickly pick up other software programmes. Excellent organisational skills, and a high attention to detail are required, as well as the ability to manage and process significant amounts of information.
