The Wildlife Trusts have a vision of land and seas rich in wildlife and people close to nature. We believe that nature is valuable in its own right and that everyone should have the chance to experience the joy of wildlife. We are part of nature and are wholly dependent upon it.

This is a time of immense change, when the laws protecting our environment and wildlife are at risk and people are suffering more than ever from a lack of access to nature. Environmental leadership can make a great difference and we are looking for someone to lead on building even greater shared ownership within The Wildlife Trust movement. We are a grassroots movement of 800,000 members, 43,000 volunteers and 2,800 staff across the UK dedicated to our vision and driven by our beliefs.

You need to be strategic by nature, able to plan ahead, and think on your feet. We are looking for an outstanding communicator with experience in telling great stories that deliver positive change. Developing shared endeavour and outcomes must be core to who you are.

We value courage, respect, integrity, trust and responsibility. Whilst we are passionate in promoting our aims, we are not judgemental, and we are inclusive. Our society is divided, and The Wildlife Trusts want to reduce, not increase, that division.

You will be part of a tight and dedicated central team, with a modest budget but an unmatched depth and breadth of human resources to draw on across The Wildlife Trusts. We are looking for an organised and driven character who can thrive in a grassroots movement. We need a team-worker, someone who values and respects each person’s contribution, experience and knowledge. We want someone who will work collaboratively and strategically to deliver agreed priorities.
