Cheshire Wildlife Trust is recruiting for a Senior Communities Officer to lead our Rewilding Stockport project with the goal of inspiring people to take action to bring local wildlife back.

Do you have a passion for working with people and communities, inspiring them about the natural world? Are you experienced in community engagement? 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 Senior Communities Officer – Rewilding Stockport will join the Wilder Engagement Team, responsible for ensuring that all aspects of the project plan are delivered on time and within budget. Whilst supervising a project team of two staff, you will plan, promote and deliver activities in Stockport that encourage people to take action for nature, focusing on hedgehogs, pollinators and swifts.

Our Wilder Communities work seeks to connect people 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 full-time, fixed term 12 month position.

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

Funding for this post has come from the National Lottery Heritage Fund.

We operate an agile working policy with most staff working at least part of the week from home and/or out on site.
