Passionate about wildlife and engaging young people? A Focus on Nature is recruiting for a Creative Director to help us to continue to connect, inspire and support young wildlife-lovers.

Since its formation, A Focus On Nature (AFON) has sought to connect, support and inspire young people aged 16 to 30 who share a passion for the natural world. Through a combination of social media activity, events and mentoring AFON has connected with thousands of young people including aspiring conservation professionals, wildlife enthusiasts, writers, artists, photographers and poets. It also spearheaded the ‘Vision for Nature’ campaign and report, setting out young people’s vision for the natural world.

About The Role

You will play a pivotal role on the committee, inspiring and motivating committee members to fulfil their roles to the best of their ability, supporting them in their roles and, in return, be supported in carrying out your own duties.

You will play a key role in shaping the direction of the organisation, steering members and the committee through the coming years. You will be responsible for partnerships – existing and new – and representing AFON at national and local levels. You must be able to demonstrate excellent managerial skills of both people and projects.

This is an opportunity to develop your CV with a nationally recognised organisation, learn new skills and influence the future direction of AFON including its campaigns, attitudes and ambitions.

Applicants must be below the age of 28 at the time of application - we ask for a date of birth to ensure this. We hope that the suitable applicant will take on the role for a period of no less than two years and no more than three years.

Full details and an application form are available on our website.
