Our client's public programmes and events, created for the diverse range of adult and family visitors to their nine conservation visitor centres across the UK, are key in attracting visitors and making their day out an enjoyable, engaging, inspiring and sometimes surprising experience (in a good way).

This charity thinks they’re so important that they have created this new post, to lead on developing and coordinating their national programmes, and also have some input to local centre events.

Up to £30,000 per annum
Up to 37.5 hours per week Monday to Friday. Flexible working patterns considered including part time
Reference: P&ENM/ HQ

Our client is looking for someone who is drawn to work for a conservation charity and has an instinctive feel for creating and supporting delivery of programmes or events at visitor attractions. Ideally you’ll have experience of multi-site event management and your positive and engaging people skills will enable you to influence and promote new programmes across the organisation.  This will be balanced with your ability to sort out logistical stuff and get stuck into practical tasks too.

Our client is a conservation charity, protecting wetlands for wildlife and people and pioneering in working with communities to save threatened wetland wildlife and habitats across the globe.  They believe that extraordinary wetlands can ignite passion in people to conserve them, so they offer amazing experiences at their unique UK wetland centres for over one million visitors every year.

This role will require regular travel to the nine centres which will sometimes entail overnight stays. The role is preferably based at Slimbridge, but can be negotiable - for example at another centre or home based.  If home based, SW England is preferred.

In return for your hard work and dedication you’ll enjoy a wide range of benefits including:

  • 25 days annual leave plus bank holidays increasing to 30 days after 5 years’ service pro-rata
  • Contributory pension scheme (conditions apply)
  • Life assurance
  • Free parking
  • Child care voucher scheme
  • Free entry to all our client's centres and discounts in their cafes and shops
