Are you passionate about engaging and inspiring people to connect to nature and helping tackle green space deprivation in communities across the UK?

Wild Spaces is Butterfly Conservation’s flagship engagement programme. It provides a simple and easy way for everyone to get involved and make a difference to help butterflies and moths.

Wild Spaces are all around us. They are the flowers in our window boxes, the pots on our patios, the patches of weeds in our gardens or allotments, and the wildflower meadows in our churchyards and parks. They provide space for nature to thrive and places for people to access and enjoy.

Butterfly Conservation has set a strategic goal to create 100,000 Wild Spaces by 2026, including through delivery of flagship projects across the UK.

This role will coordinate the development and delivery of our Wild Spaces Programme by working on a range of projects and activities.

Candidates must have the right to work in the UK.

Closing date: Midday 19 April 2024

Interviews will take place in the week commencing 29 April 2024

We believe our work has never been more important.

Wildlife is in steep decline across the UK and over three-quarters of butterflies and two-thirds of moths are declining. We recognise it needs a great team with a wide variety of skills to tackle the problems facing butterflies, moths and the environment.

Our staff and volunteers are proud to be part of Butterfly Conservation and are dedicated to making a difference to the environment we live in. We understand the importance of maintaining and expanding our expert and valued team of people and offer a range of roles located all over the UK, from the peat bogs in Scotland to the post room in Dorset.
