Closing Date:         Midday on Monday 2nd November

Interview Date:      Wednesday 11th November

Location:               Kent. We have an agile working policy where staff can work from home, office or other agreed remote location, but location of employment will be the individual’s nearest Kent hub.

Globally and nationally wildlife is in steep decline. We appear to be reaching critical tipping points around loss of biodiversity as well as around climate change, both being interlinked. Human society cannot prosper without wildlife and healthy  ecosystems. 

Kent’s wildlife needs to be restored to much higher levels. We can no longer allow common things to become rare. We can only do this by restoring large-scale habitat from degraded land. Doing this will contribute to solving global problems. But we won’t be able to do this unless we publicly aspire to a higher level of impact and show that we can deliver this.

We are looking for someone to join us as Director of Income Generation, Marketing and Communications, who has the dynamism and ambition to accelerate our efforts in realising our vision of a Wilder Kent, where nature is restored to abundance for at least 30% of the county over the next 25 years. You will bring leadership and innovation to our income generating activities positioning us to maximise our conservation impact, engage people in support of our Conservation delivery and to become a self-sustaining and resilient operation.

You will lead on income generation for the Kent Wildlife Trust Group, cultivating and stewarding a diverse range of funding streams including membership, corporate partnership, major donors and – increasingly – direct income generation whilst delivering on all necessary internal and external marketing and communications to support the charity and its trading subsidiaries.

The Kent Wildlife Trust Group is Wild About Inclusion. To us, this means inspiring, empowering and engaging people from all backgrounds, cultures, identities and abilities, to change the natural world for the better.

It also means cultivating inclusive workspaces that are free from discrimination, where differences are celebrated, everyone can be themselves and flourish, just like nature!


Kent Wildlife Trust (KWT) is a flexible employer that aims to be class-leading in the environment sector in the southeast. It is one of the largest of the 46 Wildlife Trusts, which together make up The Wildlife Trusts Partnership.  We are supported by our 32,000 members, and have the simple ambition of enabling the recovery of Kent’s wildlife.  To this end, we own or manage over 80 nature reserves covering over 9,000 acres; we campaign and lobby politicians, decision makers and landowners to ensure site protection and good habitat management; and we run a full programme of education work with schools, colleges and adult groups.  The Trust also has three Visitor Centres. We also have two income generating subsidiaries (an ecological consultancy and a trading arm). Together with the charity these make up the KWT Group.

The Trust operates from its headquarters at Tyland Barn, just north of Maidstone.  It is composed of over 100 professional and support staff who work within teams including Estates, Conservation Delivery & Partnership, Conservation Policy & Evidence, People Engagement, Marketing and Fundraising, Finance and Support Services.
