Maidstone, Kent

Permanent, Temporary, Senior Communications Officer 12 months from start date, Full-time
Job description

The Jobs: Senior Communications Officer and Communications Officer

Our goal at Kent Wildlife Trust is to ensure that 25% of the population of Kent is engaged with our work tackling the climate and nature crises. Both these roles are pivotal to that goal, working across a range of communications and marketing activities to promote our brand and ensure that as many people as possible are committed to a wilder Kent.  Working on ground breaking projects such as our bison release and wilder carbon, your responsibilities will span digital and traditional media to help our campaigns to reach audiences including businesses, policy makers, farmers and the wider public.  You will write and schedule social media posts and press releases, support the production of our membership magazine, deal with media enquiries and support the development of specific campaigns to promote Kent Wildlife Trust’s goals. This is an opportunity to have a positive and lasting impact on our environment and if you think you have the skills to succeed, we would be delighted to talk to you.  Please carefully consider the skills, qualities and experiences required for both roles and let us know which you are applying for on the application form.  You are equally very welcome to apply for both! 




In the Senior role you will be an experienced communications and marketing professional looking to take the next step in your career.  You will be an excellent writer, comfortable operating across multiple social media channels, have experience maintaining websites and with email marketing and be confident dealing with journalists.  You may currently be in the corporate or the charitable sector and you will bring fresh ideas to effect behaviour change to achieve positive environmental impacts. Ideally you will have a sound understanding of the conservation and environmental sectors, but for the right candidate this is not essential.  For the Communications Officer role you may be taking your first career steps into the Marketing and Communications sector but be able to show us passion for conservation, creativity, accuracy and experience of working with online communications and printed materials and publications.  


Kent Wildlife Trust is the leading wildlife charity for Kent and Medway, supported by its members and staffed by committed professionals.  Join our team and help us create a Wilder Kent! In return we will inspire you, listen to you, value you, treat you equally and fairly, look after your health and wellbeing and encourage flexibility from day one, enabling you to draw on these benefits to be a better, happier and more productive you.
