The Wildlife Trusts believe that people are part of nature and that a healthy, wildlife-rich world is the foundation of our wellbeing and prosperity. We have a mission to secure Living Landscapes and Living Seas and to inspire society to value and act for nature.
We currently have an exciting opportunity for a team player with experience of campaign planning to join us as a Campaign Coordinator. The purpose of the role is to coordinate a national campaign to galvanise the Wildlife Trusts and key supporters, including young people, to call for the creation of a Nature Recovery Network.
You will support and coordinate the development of the central campaign concept, its design, strategy and key messaging. Driving the campaign with passion and commitment, you will organise highly effective meetings and events, by providing funding guidance, identifying speakers and arranging the sharing of learning between the Trusts.
You will also help with the production of campaign materials and publications and with social media activity, so creative thinking and the ability to express ideas concisely is essential. You will work with the Trusts to build strong public support for the campaign and facilitate widespread individual action as part of it.
The successful candidate will have strong project and event management skills and will be experienced at delivering campaigns to large and diverse audiences using different methods of communication. Honest and inclusive with good negotiation skills, you will be confident motivating individuals to support a cause. Ideally you will have previously volunteered or worked in the charity sector, and will have an interest in the natural world.
The Wildlife Trusts is a grassroots movement of 800,000 members, 43,000 volunteers and 2,800 staff across the UK dedicated to our vision and driven by our beliefs. There are 36 Wildlife Trusts in England, four in Wales and Trusts for Scotland, Northern Ireland, Alderney and the Isle of Man. The Wildlife Trusts have an unmatched presence on the ground helping to inspire millions of people about wildlife every year and managing nearly 100,000 hectares of land. Being part of The Wildlife Trust movement enables you to make a real difference and we look for people who share our values.
We value courage, respect, integrity, trust and responsibility. Whilst we are passionate in promoting our aims, we are not judgemental, and we are inclusive. Our society is divided, and The Wildlife Trusts want to reduce, not increase, that division.
The Wildlife Trusts is an equal opportunities employer and positively encourages applications from suitably qualified and eligible candidates regardless of sex, race, disability, age, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion or belief, marital status, or pregnancy and maternity.
If you feel this is the role for you then we look forward to hearing from you.
