Position: Membership Officer
Start Network has an exciting opportunity for a Membership Officer to be a part of a dynamic and exciting change initiative focusing on growing and helping to manage our membership. As part of the Governance & Membership Team, the Membership Officer will provide administrative and project-based support to our member organisations throughout the entire membership cycle – from attraction and onboarding, to ongoing engagement and member communications. The role will also act as a focal point for general member enquires and ensure that our members can easily engage with our growing network and feel a part of what we wish to achieve in the humanitarian sector.
We are looking for candidates that have strong networking and relationship management skills – experience of working in a membership organsation, network or multi-stakeholder environment would be desirable. Apart from previous administration experience, candidates will ideally have some experience managing projects independently, and must have a good working knowledge or understanding of Microsoft Office and CRM systems (such as Salesforce). Excellent verbal and written communication skills are essential, as the role deals with a wide range of people, from different cultural backgrounds.
If you enjoy working with and supporting others, are good at managing relationships with a wide variety of stakeholders and are passionate about ambitious change initiatives then we’d love to hear from you!
