Like our trees, the Woodland Trust is growing.

We’re changing the way we recruit our members and launching our own membership recruitment team. It really is an exciting time to join us and we’re an optimistic bunch…life’s better with trees.

Our new membership recruitment team will recruit thousands of new members and supporters each year, increasing our fundraising income and enabling us to do what we do best; protect, create and restore the UK’s native woodland. Recruiters will be available at specific woodland sites and events positively promoting the Woodland Trust and informing the public about the wonderful things we do.  It’s not all about numbers. Our recruiters genuinely love the natural world and inspire people to support our cause without them feeling pressured.

There are always newer, more innovative ways to recruit and retain members and it’s a challenge we want you to relish and enjoy as an enthusiastic and positive face of the Woodland Trust. There’s nothing standard about the work of our recruiters either, each day is different. You could be working on your own or as part of a team, outside or inside. The working week is varied and includes weekends, bank holidays and unsociable hours, but it’s worthwhile.

As an experienced membership development officer you’ll be able to deliver against set targets, and spend time with the general public promoting the work of the Trust. You’ll need bags of enthusiasm about what we do and be able to travel to our beautiful woodland sites and events with our promotional material.

Starting out on a 6 month contract, we’ll guarantee you a minimum of 22.5 hours per week, but if you’re eager for more we’ll work with you to ensure your hours are increased as much as you want them to be.

In return we recognise and value our people. You'll have our full support, training and opportunities for professional development, along with a contributory pension, life assurance and good holiday entitlement.

A full clean driving licence and/or the ability to transport and carry equipment is essential.
