Are you looking for a new and different financial and organisational challenge? Your skills and experience in the financial and business sector could help our charity make a real difference into the future for the natural environment and people. This is an exciting business partner opportunity.

If you think you can help, please join us to conserve nature and re-engage people with the environment by helping to make us a more resilient and high performing charity for the future.

This exciting opportunity has arisen following the retirement of a long serving senior manager. We are therefore looking for a confident, focussed, enterprising and energetic finance and organisational services professional who wants to make a positive contribution to the environment for people, landscape and wildlife. This is a high level role which will work closely with the CEO to develop the full potential of the Trust and to maximise its efficiency and sustainability, acting as in house finance advisor across all our work, from commercial enterprises to project development.

Whilst we are a relatively small organisation we are the largest environmental charity in the North East and we punch above our weight in the influence we exert. We are based in Gosforth and, together with our trading subsidiary EcoNorth, we employ over 60 staff and involve over 200 volunteers. As an organisation we strongly value our personnel and are committed to continuous improvement in our work.

The job role is to oversee and manage all of the Trust’s financial, administrative and central service functions, working closely with the CEO and as part of the Senior Management Team, and to contribute to development of the Trust’s vision, strategy and business plan and our fundraising effort.

Application forms and a full job pack can be found on our website.  Please complete the form in full and return to Paula Turner (HR and Payroll Officer) by email to or to Northumberland Wildlife Trust, St Nicholas Park, Gosforth, Newcastle upon Tyne, NE3 3XT.
