The Wildlife Trusts have an exciting opportunity for someone with a strong track-record in developing excellent digital content, a passion for wildlife and our planet and would like to work for one of the UK’s best-loved nature charities. We are looking for a talented and creative team-player, whose digital communications skills will help The Wildlife Trusts engage new audiences and inspire people to take positive action for wildlife.

Who we are
The Wildlife Trusts are a grassroots movement of 870,000 members, 38,000 volunteers and 2,800 staff across the UK. We are at a pivotal moment in our 110-year history, with an ambitious new strategy setting out a vision of nature in recovery, with abundant, diverse wildlife and natural processes creating wilder landscapes where people and nature thrive.

The next 10 years will be critical in determining what kind of world we will all live in. We need to reverse the loss of wildlife and put nature into recovery at scale as a matter of urgency if we are to prevent climate and ecological disaster. This will require big, bold changes in the way we think and operate, and the development of a strong, collaborative culture. It will require key stakeholders and the public to take action for nature’s recovery.

About you
You will be a motivated and proactive self-starter, who thrives working as part of a bustling communications team. You will be experienced in creating, analysing and evaluating impactful organic and paid-for content across different digital channels and segmented to reach a range of new and existing audiences. You will enjoy delving into data and embrace a test and learn culture. You will be adept at communicating with mass audiences, with a creative flair and ability to create clear and simple messaging. You will be enthusiastic about keeping on top of digital trends and putting your knowledge to good use.

You will have excellent communication and inter-personal skills and feel comfortable working with a wide range of people from across The Wildlife Trusts movement and externally.

The Wildlife Trusts want our people to be as diverse as nature, so we particularly encourage applications from people who are underrepresented within our sector, including people from minority backgrounds and people with disabilities. We are committed to creating a movement that recognises and truly values individual differences and identities.

As a Disability Confident employer, we are committed to offering an interview to anyone with a disability that meets all the essential criteria for the post. Please let us know if you require any adjustments to make our recruitment process more accessible.
