The Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust
Up to £30,000 pa
Job location: Slimbridge, United Kingdom
Job sector: heritage
We’re looking for someone who is drawn to work for a conservation charity and has an instinctive feel for creating and supporting delivery of programmes or events at visitor attractions
Job description:
WWT HQ - Slimbridge Wetland Centre or Flexible / home based.
Up to 37.5 hours per week Monday to Friday. Flexible working patterns considered including part time

Our public programmes and events, created for the diverse range of adult and family visitors to our nine Wildfowl & Wetlands Trust centres across the UK, are key in attracting visitors and making their day out an enjoyable, engaging, inspiring and sometimes surprising experience (in a good way). We think they’re so important that we have created this new post, to lead on developing and coordinating our national programmes, and also have some input to local centre events.

We’re looking for someone who is drawn to work for a conservation charity and has an instinctive feel for creating and supporting delivery of programmes or events at visitor attractions. Ideally you’ll have experience of multi-site event management and your positive and engaging people skills will enable you to influence and promote new programmes across WWT. This will be balanced with your ability to sort out logistical stuff and get stuck into practical tasks too.

WWT is a conservation charity, protecting wetlands for wildlife and people and pioneering in working with communities to save threatened wetland wildlife and habitats across the globe. We believe that extraordinary wetlands can ignite passion in people to conserve them, so we offer amazing experiences at our unique UK wetland centres for over one million visitors every year.

This role will require regular travel to our nine centres which will sometimes entail overnight stays. The role is preferably based at Slimbridge Wetland Centre, but can be negotiable - for example at another WWT centre or home based. If home based, SW England is preferred.

Please state on your application form your preferred location and if you would like us to consider any flexible working/part time patterns.

In return for your hard work and dedication you’ll enjoy a wide range of benefits including:
- 25 days annual leave plus bank holidays increasing to 30 days after 5 years’ service pro-rata
- Contributory pension scheme (conditions apply)
- Life assurance
- Free parking
- Child care voucher scheme
- Free entry to all our centres and discounts in our cafes and shops

Closing date: Thursday 26 October 2017
First Interviews: Friday 10 November 2017
Second Interviews: To be confirmed
