Our ambitious targets to create woodland across Cheshire play an important part in tackling the climate emergency we are facing. We must see nature recovering, wildlife returning, and ecosystems restored. Cheshire is not known for its wooded landscape; but we want to build connections, extend existing woodland and champion trees in the landscape. If you have a passion for woodlands and the role, they can play in supporting the foundations of food production: healthy soil, cleaner water, and biodiverse ecosystems, we want to hear from you.

By joining Cheshire Wildlife Trust, you will have the opportunity to be involved in wider nature-based solutions projects working alongside a team of passionate, committed colleagues, and be able to build on a wealth of expertise to take this ambitious work forward.

The ideal candidate will have excellent project management and organisational skills, and the ability to communicate effectively with people at a range of levels, including project partners, farmers and land managers.

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.

This is a permanent position - full time, however part time will be considered for the right candidate.

To apply, please email your cover letter and CV in PDF format to Emma Raine no later than midnight on Wednesday the 17th April 2024. Interviews will be held on Tuesday 23rd April.
