The Woodland Trust is the UK’s leading woodland conservation charity. We want to see a world where trees and woods thrive for people and nature. The Trust engages and inspires people to make their difference tackling the nature and climate crisis helping protect, restore and create our vital woods and trees.


This role is a 12month fixed term contract within the Philanthropy Team responsible for supporting the delivery of our events programme which ranges from virtual events through to woodland tours and black-tie dinners.

You will be comfortable with communicating with our supporters via email, telephone and in person. Demonstrating strong written and verbal communication skills, an attention to detail and a passion for providing a high standard of customer service. The role also requires data management, and the ability to adapt and be flexible to support the needs of the team during busy periods.


You will be IT literate, specifically with experience of using MS Office and a CRM system. With excellent verbal and written communication skills, you will demonstrate confidence and professionalism when communicating with supporters and external third parties.

You will have an eye for detail and the ability to work collaboratively with colleagues.

You will operate in compliance with fundraising, health and safety and other relevant policies and demonstrate exceptional organisational, time management and administrative skills with the capacity to plan and prioritise own workload.

You will have experience liaising with customers and organising and delivering activities on time and in budget. You must understand good data management and client service (internal and external), and be able to apply these principals to a process.


There’s no other organisation like the Woodland Trust. Joining the team you will be making your contribution to tackling the nature and climate crisis. In return, we recognise and value our people. You'll have our full support, training and opportunities for professional development, along with a contributory pension, life assurance, good holiday allowance and the opportunity to work flexibly from home.


At the Woodland Trust, we believe everyone deserves to have their lives enriched by trees and woods.

We also believe that our organisation should reflect and represent the full richness of human diversity in terms of background, identity, ability and circumstance. As groups of people currently underrepresented as Woodland Trust employees, we are particularly keen to receive your application if you are Black, Asian or minority ethnic, disabled or under 25. We are measuring our success in redressing this.

We are open to discussion of any adjustments or flexible working arrangements you may need to achieve your full potential at any stage of the process, and if you are successful in gaining a position with us, during employment.

We promise the only thing we assess within your application is how you have demonstrated your suitability for the job, and nothing else.

This is a Hybrid Role. Requirements for time in the office may vary but you will be required to attend at least once a month.
