Digital Creative Assistant
World Land Trust
Salary of £18,000pa
World Land Trust (WLT) is an international conservation charity that helps to protect the world’s most biologically significant and threatened habitats, acre by acre.
As the pioneers of the Buy an Acre approach, we have spent more than 30 years raising funds for local people to secure and protect the land they know best in the Americas, Africa, Asia and beyond. With over 2,200,000 acres protected and 2,300,000 native trees funded to date, our ambition is now to drive this conservation action at scale – more acres and more species protected in this make-or-break decade for biodiversity and climate.
Scaling up the conservation action we fund will require inspiring generations of existing and new supporters – and this is where you come in. Through your command of visual, digital and social content, you will play a crucial part in our efforts to bring the work of our partners and its impact to life. As part of the Communications team, your creative flair will help advance the cause of land protection across the world, bringing attention to conservation at the time it needs it most.
Working with WLT
WLT is based in the UK and is unique within the conservation world. Now in well over its 30th year of operation, the Trust has grown from small beginnings, from saving critically threatened forest in Belize to becoming an internationally respected conservation organisation with a proven track record, working with 32 overseas conservation NGOs on the protection of threatened habitats. WLT has developed its modus operandi without losing its vision, integrity and transparency.
