Cheshire Wildlife Trust is recruiting for a Wilder Childhood Manager to lead our childhood engagement work with the goal of inspiring people to take action to bring local wildlife back.

Do you have a passion for working with children and families, inspiring them about the natural world? Are you experienced in education and/or outdoor learning? Do you want to be part of driving a movement and empowering people to take action for wildlife?

We have just the role for you.

Nature is in trouble. We have reached a tipping point. Wildlife is in freefall both locally and nationally and our climate is in crisis. By 2030 we must see nature recovering, wildlife returning and ecosystems restored and we need many, many more people on nature’s side. We urgently need one in four people to take action to bring wildlife back across our region.

The Wilder Childhood Manager will join the Wilder Engagement Team, developing the Wilder Schools Programme and projects for families and children including outdoor direct delivery, teacher training and management of grant funded projects. This is a team leader position and requires close collaboration with both internal and external partners.

Our Wilder Childhood work seeks to connect children to nature, inspiring them to care and take action to bring wildlife back. We are working to empower and mobilise individuals and communities via self-sustaining networks and a community organising approach.

This is a permanent, full-time position.

Applications close at midnight on Sunday 5th February 2023 and interviews will be held w/c 13th February.

At Cheshire Wildlife Trust we embrace agile working with a focus on supporting you to achieve your objectives alongside a healthy work-life balance. We operate a hybrid working policy with most staff working at least part of the week from home and/or out on site.
