The Wildlife Trusts are working to facilitate nature’s recovery across the nature reserves we care for and within the communities we work alongside, and we know that if nature is to be restored at scale, we need many more people on nature’s side.

A high level of competency in word processing and spreadsheets is essential to accurately record key information relating to stock welfare, stock movements and habitat condition.

We offer the following benefits:

  • A works vehicle for you to use to travel to and between sites
  • Work on some of Norfolk’s most iconic and beautiful nature reserves
  • Competitive annual leave entitlement
  • 8 % employer contribution to Aviva pension (2% employee minimum)
