Full Time
PR and Communications Officer (Grants)
Permanent, Full Time (35 hours per week)

The Wildlife Trusts believe that everyone deserves to live a healthy, wildlife-rich natural world and that everyone should have the opportunity to experience the joy of wildlife in their daily lives.

We value courage, respect, integrity, trust and responsibility. Whilst we are passionate about 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. We are aware that whilst our beneficiaries are reflective of our communities, our staff and trustees are less so. Therefore, we are committed to addressing this.

We are currently looking for a highly creative individual with previous experience in a PR/communications role to support the development and delivery of our communication plans for grant-funded projects.

Acting as the main PR and Communications contact between grant recipients and the grants team, you will work to ensure that funder requirements are met for social and traditional media profile, events, website content and print materials. You will be involved in a range of communications and branding activities to include digital and traditional media methods.

Ideally, we are looking for someone who has previously been involved in PR and Communications activity for a membership-based charity. With the ability to inspire confidence, you will be able to communicate with a wide variety of audiences using different methods and channels.

It is important that you have strong copywriting, editing, sub-editing and proofreading skills, along with the ability to manage projects, consultants and agencies. A good grasp of social media, website maintenance and content development is also essential.

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.

The Wildlife Trusts is an equal opportunities employer and we actively seek to increase the diversity of our workforce and volunteers. We positively encourage 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
