The Trust


Sussex Wildlife Trust is a conservation charity for everyone who cares about nature in Sussex. We focus on protecting the wonderfully rich natural life that is found across our towns, countryside and coast.  By working alongside local people we create opportunities for us all to connect with nature and for nature to thrive in even the most unlikely places.  Together we can make sure that future generations living in Sussex will be able to enjoy the sense of wonder and well-being that nature offers.

The role will involve writing, updating implementing site management plans, delivering a wide range of practical conservation and habitat management projects involving contractors, volunteers and partners. You will work with local communities and project partners to ensure good communication throughout.  This role will also help to coordinate and implement agri-environmental and other land management grant schemes.

Able to draw on your depth of practical conservation management skills, you will be equally at home developing and drafting site management plans, or leading practical land management activities on the ground.


We are looking for someone who has substantial knowledge of agri-environmental and other land management grant related schemes.


You will be a strong team player, and a good communicator, able to engage our communities in our work on our nature reserves.
