An exciting opportunity has arisen for an individual with excellent leadership and communication skills. The John Muir Award and Engagement Manager will be responsible for managing the John Muir Award across the UK, providing leadership and strategic development, ensuring that it contributes to the Vision of the John Muir Trust. Building on the success of the Award, the John Muir Award and Engagement Team will build support for nature, wild places and the work of the Trust across the UK with a wide range of audiences.


Support for the work of the Trust is strongest among those who regularly access wild landscapes, but the value of wildness is something that can be enjoyed by a much wider range of society.  The John Muir Award is an environmental scheme that focuses on wild places and encourages awareness and responsibility for the natural environment. It embraces a spirit of fun, adventure and exploration and is open to people from all backgrounds, and is the main engagement initiative of the John Muir Trust. Building on this base, the Trust is exploring other opportunities, particularly for young people, to engage on a long-term basis with the task of protecting and managing our wild places.


The Award currently operates across the UK, delivering over 35,000 Awards annually with staff bases in England, Scotland and Wales. Each year since the John Muir Award was launched in 1997 at least 25% of take-up has been with participants from disadvantaged backgrounds.
