Job description

Volunteers are an essential and valued part of the Bumblebee Conservation Trust team; without them we simply couldn’t deliver our vision and mission. Our volunteer strategy will see us develop a network of staffed volunteer hubs across the UK over the next decade. We are delighted to have secured funding from the National Lottery Heritage Fund (NLHF) to launch our first hub in the West Midlands this autumn via a project called Bee Inspired-Walsall.

Your primary role will be to:

  • Project manage the delivery of our NLHF-funded ‘Bee Inspired – Walsall’ project.
  • Expand our volunteer-hub model to other parts of the UK via project development and fundraising.
  • Drive forwards improvements to volunteer management processes and systems across the Trust.

You will be an experienced project manager with strong networking and communication skills and experience delivering community engagement projects, especially building relationships with under-represented audiences.

Please refer to the job description and person specification for more details of the role.

This is a part-time (28 hours), fixed term (24 month) position based at home within the Midlands to allow regular travel to Walsall and the surrounding area.

At the Trust, we have a clear goal: to be the place where a diverse mix of talented people want to come, to stay and do their best work. We pride ourselves on reaching for our vision – to reverse the decline in bumblebees, through the hard work and dedication of our passionate and creative employees.

The Trust recruits, employs, trains and promotes regardless of race, religion, colour, national origin, gender, disability, age, and other protected status.
