Project Administrator (Part Time)

WWF New Zealand is seeking an experienced and enthusiastic part-time Project Administrator to help us implement an aid-funded project in Fiji aimed at enhancing the economic benefits of more sustainable fisheries in four local communities on the island of Vanua Levu.
Do you have a background in project budget-tracking and reporting? Do you want to help us make a difference to local communities in the Pacific? Are you interested in working for the world's largest and most experienced independent conservation organisation? Are you looking for flexible part time working arrangements? If so, we want to hear from you.
 
WWF-New Zealand is looking to recruit for a new position to join our Campaigns team and help us and WWF’s office in Fiji run a multi-million dollar aid-funded project. Based in Wellington, the Project Administrator will be responsible for the financial reporting, monitoring and on-going evaluation of the project in accordance with the requirements of WWF and the New Zealand Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade.
 
This exciting and innovative project is a partnership between WWF-New Zealand, WWF South Pacific, Le Cordon Bleu culinary institute and the New Zealand Aid Programme. It seeks to connect four local fishing communities in Fiji with the hospitality sector in order to provide hotels with sustainably caught local seafood and the communities with better value for their produce.
 
The position is part time: one and a half days per week, or three days per fortnight (with potential flexibility regarding which days are worked). WWF-New Zealand has secured funding for the duration of the project (3 years) for this position.
 
The successful applicant will need to be a well organised and competent administrator, with experience of maintaining project accounts and reporting to funders, with an ability to develop working relationships with a range of project partners and work in a geographically and culturally diverse team.
 
If this sounds like you, please email your CV and cover letter by 5pm Wednesday 14th May 2014 to Peggy Munn: pmunn@wwf.org.nz
