Wild Warley Project Manager

Warley Woods Community Trust, Smethwick, West Midlands


We are looking for a person who will be able to lead our Wild Warley project.  Warley Woods is 100 acre urban park, but don't think just swings and picnics - think mature woodland, open parkland - a piece of the countryside in an urban area. Warley Woods is currently managed very much with humans in mind and we want to make sure it is managed and developed for wildlife too - making it a richer landscape for both. 


We are currently undertaking ecological surveys with Birmingham and Black Country Wildlife Trust and once we know what we have, we want a person who will be able to take on board this information and help us with our plans to start making physical improvements, planning training events and engagement activities.  They will be delivering some of those personally, but also bringing in other experts to help.  There is plenty of scope to be practical and hands on and to be creative as you will be both planning and delivering the detail of this project.


We are looking for someone who is knowledgeable about ecology in general and who may have a particular specialism too.  You will need to be a people person - as this project is almost as much about humans and as it is about wildlife. Warley Woods is an amazing place to work.  It has been voted one of the UK's favourite parks five times and has had Green Flag Award for 11 years.  The Community Trust may be small, but it prides itself on being a good employer and taking care of its staff.  We have hundreds of volunteers and hundreds of potential ones waiting to be involved. While much of the success of the project will rest with you - you won't be working alone!
