Suffolk Wildlife Trust is an inspiring and impactful organisation with a compelling vision for our county: A Wilder Suffolk where nature is thriving and abundant, because everyone is doing more to help.

In the decade to 2030 we are committed to scaling up our activities across the county to bring nature back to Suffolk. Our aim is for 30% of our county to be connected and well looked after for nature by 2030, so that our species and habitats can recover and thrive - and for 1 in 4 people to be actively helping to achieve this. Every member of staff has a direct role to play in our mission to Bring nature back.

Our Planning and Advocacy work is central to achieving this ambition as we seek to influence policies and decision-making to ensure future growth and development, from housing to major infrastructure, protect and help increase wildlife in Suffolk.

The Planning and Advocacy Officer will play a key role in delivering our strategy for making planning and development better for nature. Sitting within our wider Conservation Team, the successful candidate will work closely with colleagues in other functional teams to deliver impactful and effective engagement with the planning system, Councils, and developers, and to empower our members and supporters to take action for wildlife.
