Have you ever dreamed of making an impact on the future of one of only four remaining intact temperate grasslands in the world, home to bison, black-footed ferrets, an array of grassland birds, and diverse communities? World Wildlife Fund (WWF), the global conservation organization, seeks an Office Administrator for its Northern Great Plains (NGP) Field office in Bozeman, Montana. WWF’s program leads innovative work with public agencies, tribal nations, ranchers and other partners to create a sustainable future for the Northern Great Plains. Its two main goals are to sustain and enhance biodiversity across the Northern Great Plains and to restore two flagship species—bison and black-footed ferrets—where possible within the region. The Office Administrator is a critical member of the team responsible for ensuring the smooth and efficient functioning of the field office. This position plays an integral role in coordinating office operations, planning WWF events and field tours, and providing donor management support. In addition, the role provides scheduling and travel assistance to senior management and supports field staff as needed. The Office Administrator interacts with all members of the team, as well as major donors, regional partners and WWF US headquarters personnel in Washington, DC. The position works with independent judgment to ensure administrative information is well organized, deadlines are met, and problems or inconsistencies are raised and addressed.
This is an excellent role for an individual who enjoys supporting others by ensuring that smooth and efficient processes are in place, and who places high value on attention to detail, organization and project management. The Northern Great Plains Program is seeking a seasoned administrator, someone who has a solid base of experience, yet who is excited to learn and develop within a large and fast-paced conservation organization. The ideal candidate is interested in the unique challenges presented by supporting a field office. This person is comfortable wearing multiple hats and jumping in to get the job done when needed. We are looking for someone who can think on their feet and isn’t daunted by problem-solving on the fly. Candidates must be highly organized, exceptionally detailed oriented, able to manage and prioritize multiple tasks, competent with computers, and able to maintain a positive attitude in a dynamic environment. The Office Administrator reports to the Finance and Operations Lead.
