We are now recruiting a Public Sector Partnerships Specialist to help us deliver this mission.

As Public Sector Partnerships Specialist you will be part of a committed team delivering a new strategy of raising WWF-UK’s profile whilst securing significant funding through public sector partnerships with the UK Government and other multi-lateral funders. This will involve building strong relationships across the organisation and the WWF network as well as working to identify public sector donors, map funds and advise on access points into Government and other public institutions. Critically you will support the drafting of proposals, assess of donor Terms and Conditions, lead on proposal development and ensure quality funding submissions. You will also provide ongoing donor reporting and share learning to improve our success rate.

To succeed you will have a good understanding of the government in the UK and Whitehall departments as well as experience in the conservation, development or research fields. You will also have a background in the NGO or environmental sectors. You will possess sound knowledge of fundraising, or the ability to quickly learn the key aspects of the role. Comfortable managing projects and building relationships, you will also possess excellent communication, interpersonal and coordination skills.

If you have the skills to help build a movement in defence of nature, we would love to hear from you. Please click on the link and submit a copy of your up to date CV with cover letter highlighting what makes you a good fit for us.

Every role at WWF is open to applications from all sections of society. We believe in the potential of everyone regardless of; sex, race, religion or belief, ethnic origin, different physical ability, family structure, socio-economics, age, nationality or citizenship, marital, domestic or civil partnership, sexual orientation, gender identity, or any other aspect that makes you, well you. Here at WWF, we are committed to conscious inclusion that helps cultivate an ethos of belonging, connection and shared purpose. We believe that the more diverse we are the better we become; this brings us together and empowers us to develop, engage and inspire; and critically to help build a future where people can live in harmony with nature.

Our policies and benefits reflect the importance of people being able to have a good work-life balance and being able to bring their ‘full self’ to work.

Our world needs you like never before. We are the first generation to know we are destroying the world and we could be the last that can do anything about it. We are looking for people who are passionate about making it politically, socially and economically unacceptable to destroy our planet’s natural resources. We need you to join us in the fight for our world.
