Campaigns Officer

Warwickshire Wildlife Trust

Warwickshire Wildlife Trust (WWT) is embarking on an ambitious new ten-year strategy. By 2030
we will see wildlife recovering, more space for nature and more people on nature’s side.
Campaigning for positive change is a key thread across all our strategic aims, and our ambition
is to be bolder, more confident, and more impactful. It’s a critical year for wildlife and wild
spaces; we’re looking for an experienced and passionate change maker to be part of this journey
with us. 

About us 

Established in 1970 we are a grass roots organisation governed by 14 trustees elected from a
membership of 28,000 people, 99% of whom live in the county. Our work is supported by 700
active volunteers, helping us manage over 1,000 hectares of natural spaces in Warwickshire,
Coventry and Solihull – everyone living or working in Warwickshire lives no more than 6 miles
from our 67 nature reserves, which they can access and enjoy. 

WWT is also part of the influential The Wildlife Trusts movement covering the whole of the UK
with 870,000 members, 32,500 volunteers, 2,500 staff and 600 trustees between us. We’re on a
mission to restore a third of the UK’s land and seas for nature by 2030. We all believe
everyone, everywhere, should have access to nature and the joy and benefits this brings. Each
Wildlife Trust is an independent charity formed by people getting together to make a positive
difference for wildlife, climate, and future generations. Together, we care for 2,300 diverse
and beautiful nature reserves and work with others to manage land for nature, too.

About you

You’re a great communicator and collaborator, with a keen sense of justice for our natural
world and a proven ability to change hearts and minds. 

You’ll be familiar with influencing policy and decision-makers either in your career so far or
as a volunteer, and a strong believer in the power of teamwork. Organised and resourceful,
you’re great at managing your time and energy within a fast-paced environment, and you’ve got a
good eye for written detail. A skilled active listener, you’re adept at drawing consensus from
a range of views.

Your focus will be on planning and delivering simple and effective campaigns that give nature a
bold confident voice – to help shape local plans for nature’s recovery, celebrate nature’s role
in everyone’s lives and inspire people to take action for wildlife. You will work closely with
colleagues across our movement, as well as with partners to share knowledge and best practice
around campaign messaging, tools, and tactics. You will also help to create inspiring
messaging, actions and resources that resonate locally and galvanise more people to act for

Strong, positive relationships with our #Teamwilder communities, our volunteers and local
stakeholders are very important to us; you’ll also make sure everyone can play a part in our
campaigns and can help others get involved too. 

If you have the passion and expertise to give nature a voice, we would be delighted to receive
your application. 

Closing date for applications is noon on Monday 13 May 2024.
