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 forms part of our Digital Enablement Development Team, providing an exciting opportunity to be part of our Digital Transformation Programme, utilising the latest technologies to support organisational growth.

The Software Developer will play an integral role in building and implementing a new Business Management System using Microsoft Dynamics as well as developing and maintaining our existing systems.


You will be familiar with Microsoft Dynamics. Certification in Microsoft Dynamics administration/development would be beneficial but not essential. Knowledge of the Power Platform Certification in Microsoft Power Platform administration/development would be advantageous. As would implementation experience of Dynamics/Power Platform, creating customised elements. You will need to have experience of full stack development using .NET, C# and Azure (including web or application) and have worked in an Agile development team (ideally SCRUM/KANBAN) working with user stories, acceptance criteria and participating in associated activities.

You will be comfortable with integration with 3rd party applications/services e.g. payment gateways and use of JSON/XML data formats and have a knowledge of SASS, frameworks/libraries such as Angular, React.js and build/deployment services, preferably DevOps.

In addition, experience of the following is required… E-Commerce development, preferably NOP Commerce, Umbraco CMS development, SQL/NoSQL databases (e.g. CosmosDB), Working to secure coding practices, Developing for user experience (UI/UX) and Accessibility (WCAG).

You will have a passion for technology and innovation with the ability to focus on the detail and be comfortable taking ownership of, and being accountable for, complex deliverables. With sound organisational and planning skills, you will work well within a team but also able to work independently with initiative.

The ability to communicate technical concepts effectively to a diverse range of stakeholders is essential.


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 believe that all people, no matter their background, identity, ability or circumstance, should benefit from trees. We believe everyone deserves equal protection from climate change. Equal air, water and soil quality. Equal opportunity to feel the positive impact of trees and woods on our minds, bodies and spirits.

We also believe our own organisation should reflect and represent all voices within our communities and recognise that the environmental sector as a whole is one of the least ethnically diverse in the UK.

But we are determined to change this and we are taking action. At the Woodland Trust we encourage applications that reflect the richness of human diversity and 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 working role, where you’ll work some of your time from home and some of your time from the Grantham Office. Time in the office will vary but is expected to be around twice a month.

We reserve the right to close this role before the stated closing date should we receive a suitable volume of applications at the required level.
