ABOUT US

The Woodland Trust is the UK’s leading woodland conservation charity. We want to see a UK rich in native woods and trees, for people and wildlife. The Trust aims to engage and inspire people about woods and trees to help us meet our vision of creating, restoring, and protecting woodland. We own and care for over 1,000 woodland sites across the United Kingdom and support the creation and management of woodland on land outside the Trust’s own estate.

THE ROLE

The role of Membership Development Officer is to engage members of the public in the Woodland Trust at various events and venues, with the aim of inspiring them to sign up to become a new regular giving supporter.

Part of this role will include attending public facing events and other activities across Milton Keynes and surrounding areas, such as festivals, markets, garden centres and our own sites along with travel across the UK from time to time. This requires a working pattern which is Friday to Sunday and some Bank Holidays, with occasional overnight stays. It also requires access to a vehicle with the ability to travel to agreed work locations with all equipment provided.

This sales based role will suit anyone with a passion for the environment and conservation as well as people who do not work a traditional 9 – 5, Monday to Friday role such as students, part time workers or retirees.

THE CANDIDATE

You will be an approachable and outgoing person who is able to engage and inspire a diverse range of people through fluent, high-quality conversation, leading to a commitment to financial support. Becoming an advocate of the Trust’s work, communicating our strategy, our mission and being able to work collaboratively with others are key in being successful in this role. You’ll have a proven track record of meeting Key Performance Indicators (KPI’s) and targets as well an awareness of GDPR. Overall you will have a passion for the environment that shines through and captures peoples interest.

WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT

There’s no other organisation like the Woodland Trust. Whatever you do here you will be supporting our work to protect and enhance woods and trees. In return, we recognise and value our people. You'll have our full support, training and opportunities for professional development, along with contributory pension, life assurance and good holiday entitlement.

OUR COMMITMENT TO DIVERSITY & INCLUSION

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.
