Job description

Could you be the person to play a key role in building our new wildlife philanthropy programme?

Herts and Middlesex Wildlife Trust works to create more space for nature and inspire and enable people to take action. With over 23,000 members and 600 volunteers, and working closely with farmers, local authorities, community and conservation organisations, we play a leading role in nature’s recovery.

The Trust believes that wildlife should be able to thrive alongside our everyday lives and that everyone benefits from having access to nature. If we work together as a community, nature will recover and we will create a greener, sustainable and wilder future.

As part of the national federation of 46 Wildlife Trusts, our influence is far-reaching and we play a vital role in standing up for wildlife.

We are committed to creating a community that recognizes and truly values individual differences and identities. We actively encourage applications from people of all backgrounds and cultures. Our staff team is enthusiastic, friendly and committed to wildlife conservation and exemplifies our values of professionalism, valuing contributions by others and continually striving to improve. We offer flexible working as well as other benefits such as salary sacrifice schemes. We are based in the attractive setting of Verulamium Park on the outskirts of St Albans.

You will need to have experience of stewarding high-level donor relationships and preparing compelling support proposals. You will have outstanding interpersonal and communication skills, alongside organisational and negotiating skills and a passion for what we do.
