We’re looking for a Youth Action for Nature Manager to help us build a movement that engages and enables young people across Birmingham and the Black Country to take action for nature by developing their own projects and campaigns.

This is an exciting time to join the Wildlife Trust and help deliver our vision of a Wilder Birmingham and Black Country. The Youth Action for Nature Manager will work across the region to inspire young people – including those from underrepresented communities - to get involved in the protection and promotion of our natural spaces with the overall aim of making urban nature more inclusive, accessible, and relevant to them.

We’re looking for someone with experience of community organising and mobilising environmental action amongst young people, adept in the development and use of social media and digital resources, and confident in developing partnerships to connect with new audiences.

The successful candidate will demonstrate excellent communication, networking, and facilitation skills, alongside the leadership qualities needed to grow an environmental movement. You will have a track record of securing funding and the confidence to work independently and on your own initiative.
