Location: Office based in Halesworth, Suffolk, but with a supportive approach to flexible and remote working
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 2,200,000 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.
This is a new role for World Land Trust, developing and managing the delivery of a high-profile campaign that will engage with schools and youth groups to inspire young people to proactively support the environment in a tangible and meaningful way.
Working with WLT
WLT is based in the UK and is unique within the conservation world. Now well over its 30th year of operation the Trust has grown from small beginnings, saving critically threatened forest in Belize to become 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.
What you’ll be doing
This standalone role will be responsible for managing the delivery of the project plan, working collaboratively with internal departments and external partner agencies, as well as engaging with schools and youth groups with a positive message about how they can actively help to protect the environment, ensuring that the project meets its deadlines.
Who we’re looking for
We’re looking for an experienced project management professional, with a passion for environmental conservation, able to successfully manage fundraising project plans through to completion. Someone confident in working with people at all levels, with the ability to establish good working relationships and find practical solutions to challenges through working constructively with others.
