Job description

Purpose of role: To run a small but busy charity office, managing facilities, I.T. and database development, and to support the WFN team across events, fundraising, conservation programmes and communications.

The Whitley Fund for Nature (WFN)

WFN is a UK-registered charity (no. 1081455) offering funding (Awards), training and media profile to inspiring leaders of wildlife conservation projects across the Global South. We support pragmatic, sustainable and long-lasting work rooted in science and community involvement. The charity funds projects directly and we remain in regular contact with our winners. WFN also raises awareness of the serious problems facing wildlife, landscapes, climate and people through promoting the work of our winners. We focus support on nationals (leaders who were either born in the country where they work or have gained nationality) and aim to build the capacity of successful local NGOs and grassroots work. We fund mainly in Africa, Asia and Latin America where income is often hardest to raise and can have the biggest impact for people and biodiversity.

Our funding is raised each year, mainly from family foundations and trusts, as well as from individuals, corporates and international NGOs, with a current annual income of £2m/year. WFN is governed by a committed trustee board. Our small team is dynamic, hard-working and strives to go above and beyond expectations. The charity benefits from high profile support from Patron, HRH The Princess Royal, Trustee Sir David Attenborough, and Ambassadors Kate Humble and Tom Heap. Next year, WFN will be marking its 30th anniversary, which provides a special opportunity to celebrate 30 years of supporting inspiring conservation leaders, and to look to the future. In line with our ambition to raise £3m/year by 2025, we are expanding our team to meet targets and increase the amount of support we can channel to our growing network of conservationists around the world as we seek to further raise their profile and foster south-south collaborations among WFN alumni.
