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 America, Africa, Asia and beyond.  With over 2,400,000 acres protected and over 2,000,000 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.


The role of the Donor Relations Assistant is to provide front line support to all supporters, ensuring that the quality of donor experience is maximised in a way that is respectful and engaging and allows for long-term relationships with the Trust to be formed.  This role will have a focus on regular giving administration and consistent use of our contact database.

We are looking for a candidate who is keen to work in an environment where they can use their existing skills with opportunities to develop.  The successful candidate will be someone with experience of working in a customer service environment with a passion for high standards of customer care, who has a working knowledge of data entry.  We’re looking for someone who is able to demonstrate exceptional communication and organisational skills alongside meticulous attention to detail, who is a strong team player, happy to support the wider team in meeting its objectives.
