If protecting the world’s most threatened habitats and species for the future is a vision you share with us, and you’re looking for a role that makes an impact, then we’d love to hear from you!
We regularly have vacancies so please do check out the current vacancies below.
POSITIVE | HONEST | SUPPORTIVE | FOCUSED
WLT will always approach every situation in a positive way to find and communicate solutions, operating and communicating with honesty, remaining focused on our mission, and working in a supportive way with our staff, partners and supporters.
OUR BENEFITS PACKAGE
We know that salary is important but that’s only part of the story.
Working for World Land Trust brings wider benefits for our staff and we think the following are worth shouting about.
Flexible working opportunities
We know that our staff value the opportunity to enjoy a healthy work-life balance and so we build flexibility into the way we work from day one, including opportunities for hybrid working.
The majority of our staff are working on a 9-day fortnight basis, with one day off each week every fortnight, and we have recruited staff from across the country by enabling hybrid working, subject to any specific role requirements, but we do love having people in the office and think it’s important to have some regular time working face-to-face too. We support those conversations with managers and do our best to accommodate individual requests alongside business needs.
We offer 33 days’ annual leave (including Bank Holidays) plus an additional discretionary day each year to volunteer for a charity or community organisation of your choice.
Group personal pension scheme
Investing in companies that can demonstrate positive application of Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) criteria, which ensures that our pension scheme operates in line with our Values. We also offer Pension Salary Exchange as a way of making tax-efficient contributions into your workplace pension.
Group life assurance
Whilst we hope our staff live long and happy lives, we want to give some peace of mind and this benefit provides a lump sum payment of 4x salary.
Occupational sick pay
We keep our benefits under review and recently introduced occupational sick pay for staff from day 1.
Our staff wellbeing is important to us and so alongside a wellbeing policy, supported by an Employee Assistance Programme which includes access to counselling and a wellbeing helpline, we have provided opportunities for staff – and managers – to attend inhouse training to support their own wellbeing and those of their teams.
Cycle to Work Scheme
We’re currently working with a not-for-profit scheme provider to give our staff the chance to purchase a bike (including e-bike options) through a salary exchange scheme, which means you save the tax and NI that you would pay if you bought the bike directly from your next (after tax) pay giving savings of up to 47%!
A specialist organisation we’re working with to ensure that we provide a welcoming and supportive environment for all staff where they can be the best they can be, introduced us to the Inclusion Passport.
This means we start off with a conversation about what helps you to work best, feel included and be supported, which can encompass neurodiversity, frequent religious practice or menopause, as well as disability and gender reassignment.
At World Land Trust we are committed to inclusion and respect to our employees, those who support us, and those whom we support. We treat everyone with respect and have particular regard for the ‘protected characteristics’ under the Equality Act 2010. We have a zero-tolerance policy towards discriminatory language or actions that could create a hostile environment and we do not accept behaviour that amounts to harassment or exclusion of any individual.
We know that there is always room to improve and so we work with a not-for-profit programme, ‘Best Employers Eastern Region’, to provide an annual, anonymised, employee engagement survey, using the results to guide our People Plan for the following year. We’re proud of our staff participation rate and the effort they make to share their thoughts with us, as well as our consistently high levels of staff engagement.
Learning and Development
We support growth and development within role and this forms part of regular conversations with staff, brought together in our annual Performance and Development Review (PDR). Retaining expertise and providing opportunities is something that’s important to us and we have seen a number of staff move into new roles within World Land Trust.
