Are you passionate about connecting children & adults with nature? Do you have strong communication skills across multiple platforms and excellent attention to detail? This could be the job for you...

Avon Wildlife Trust runs a range of programmes that supports people of all ages to connect with nature, learn new skills and take action for wildlife. We are looking for an enthusiastic, creative & well organised person to support our learning programmes. This varied role includes creating diverse, compelling marketing & communication content, managing bookings, maintaining accurate records and providing a friendly and professional service to schools, supporters and the general public.

Avon Wildlife Trust is the largest local charity working to protect wildlife in the West of England area (which includes Bristol, Bath and North East Somerset, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire). It is one of the 46 Wildlife Trusts and the Royal Society of Wildlife Trusts that together collectively form The Wildlife Trusts Partnership. Together, they are the biggest organisation in the UK working solely for nature.

Today, Avon Wildlife Trust employs 40 staff and works alongside over 1,500 volunteers, supported by over 17,000 members. We work to bring wildlife back through the management of restoration of habitats and to inspire people to take action for wildlife. We manage 30 nature reserves, covering over 1,000 hectares of land from ancient bluebell woods to Iron Age forts, nationally important wetlands, and wildflower meadows. The Trust involves people in nature’s recovery by supporting, equipping and empowering them to take action in their communities and through events, award-winning educational and community programmes, and through the quality of experience of visiting our nature reserves. The Trust communicates and advocates for nature across the West of England, working with MPs and local Councils to ensure the importance of nature is reflected in legislation and local plans. And we work with landowners in the wider countryside, to create living landscapes where people and wildlife can thrive.

The Wildlife Trusts value diversity. We are committed to creating a movement that recognises and truly values individual differences and identities. We actively encourage applications from people of all backgrounds and cultures.
