The Woodland Trust is the UK’s leading woodland conservation charity. We want to see a UK rich in native woods and trees, for people and wildlife. The Trust aims to engage and inspire people about woods and trees to help us meet our vision of creating, restoring and protecting woodland. We own and care for over 1,000 woodland sites across the United Kingdom and support the creation and management of woodland on land outside the Trust’s own estate.
The purpose of this role is to support the Woods Under Threat campaigns team in managing the flow of case work and campaigns as well as being the first port of call for all public enquiries into the team, giving sound advice they can act upon.
The Assistant campaigner will also be expected to support the wider campaigns function, including our policy and advocacy campaigns, urban/street trees activity and the Tree Charter project, managing internal communications, data management and customer service.
The successful Assistant Campaigner will have a real passion for the environment and especially trees. You will be organised, detail-orientated and customer-focused.
Experience in either a similar role or a relevant qualification would be highly desirable.
