Job Details

Globally and nationally wildlife is in steep decline. We appear to be reaching critical tipping points around the 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.

The Job:

You will be supporting all governance matters for the Trust including a range of administrative, policy and governance duties.  In this role there will be checking, signing and sealing of official corporate documents, maintaining registers and liaising across multiple departments within the Trust and externally.

You:

You thrive in a hands-on role supporting all governance matters for the Trust including a range of administrative, policy and governance duties.  You love to be busy and support a fast paced schedule of governance meetings by maintaining accurate records.  You are an excellent communicator as you will be giving advice, chasing senior stakeholders and providing both verbal and written agendas and reports to board members.  Your prioritisation skills are second to none with the ability to hit all deadlines. You will demonstrate total confidentiality and support a Business Partnering approach.

Company

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.
