Do you want to join an exciting and expanding organisation and help to end factory farming?

We are looking for someone to provide maternity cover for the Database Officer role within the CRM team.  This role provides key support for all of our offices in their use of our Salesforce CRM system, through importing donations, creating mailing files for fundraising activities, carrying out regular data hygiene routines and providing support for all users of the system.

You should have experience of using databases and be confident in the updating and manipulation of data.
