We are recruiting a Content Communications Officer to join the Communications, Campaigns & Marketing team at Shropshire Wildlife Trust.

We are looking for someone who is enthusiastic, energetic and motivated to make a difference with compelling, impactful content. Our communication channels are key to connecting more people with nature and delivering on our goals to protect local wildlife and natural landscapes.

Your role will be to create and manage the varied content that shares nature and wildlife stories and campaigns with our audiences and supporters. Having an interest in wildlife and the natural environment would be advantageous to the role.

So if this sounds like you, we’d love to hear from you now! See the full job description for more details.

Shropshire Wildlife Trust (SWT) has a vision of a thriving natural world, where Shropshire's wildlife and natural habitats play a valued role in addressing the climate and ecological emergencies, and people are inspired and empowered to take action for nature. We combine projects across Shropshire (including Telford & Wrekin) with advocacy and campaigning to restore nature and to engage people. We manage over 40 nature reserves and have almost 50 staff, 300 volunteers, and over 9000 members. SWT is an autonomous charity, but we are increasingly working collectively, as part of The Wildlife Trusts (TWT), to ensure that our local actions have a national impact and help to address global issues.

We value courage, respect, integrity, trust and responsibility. Whilst we are passionate in promoting our aims, we are not judgemental and are inclusive. We 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.
