We're Hiring - Membership Administrator (6 month maternity cover)

We are looking for a Membership Administrator for a 6-month maternity cover to support our work to promote food science and technology for the benefit, safety and health of everyone.

As our Membership Administrator, you will play a crucial role in supporting our members by maintaining member records, processing information, sending communications and information.  Our members will find you a delight to work with.  You will be a database whizz and be able to produce meaningful reports from our data.  We are updating our systems, so experience of working to improve an existing database system would be welcome.  You will have experience of membership or subscription-based processes.

You will also help run our financial activities – processing member transactions, issuing customer invoices, arranging to pay suppliers, reconciling transactions, and liaising with our accountants and auditors.  You will probably be familiar with Sage, Xero or another accounting package.

We are a small team, so we all muck in to keep things running smoothly.

If you are interested in developing your membership and finance skills, join us to help put our ambitious plans to grow our membership into practice.

Send us your CV and a cover letter - please ensure you have read the person specification. We will look at applications as we receive them.  If we think you could be right for the role, we will ask you to come in to meet us.

No agencies, please.

Salary: £24-26K

The post will be home-based while the COVID-19 restrictions are in place.  Our office is based in Hammersmith, London W6, and regular attendance at the office is envisaged as restrictions ease.

We are the UK’s leading professional body for those involved in all aspects of food science and technology. We are an internationally respected independent membership body, supporting food professionals through knowledge sharing and professional recognition.

Our core aim is the advancement of food science and technology based on impartial science and knowledge sharing.
