Are you passionate about wildlife and would like to share that enthusiasm with others?
Do you enjoy working with people? Are you interested in developing a career in communications or community engagement?
Devon Wildlife Trust is looking for an enthusiastic, organised and creative Communications Assistant. This newly created post will sit within DWT’s Communications team, providing general support for Trust marketing and communications activities. It will also support the communications activity of a newly established Wilder Communities programme, which has been set up to empower and enable community action for wildlife. You would be responsible for keeping our website up to date, providing social media support, delivering online events, supporting volunteers to coordinate responses to general enquiries through our help desk, supporting any new community forums and providing general communications support to our front-line projects.
The ideal candidate will have some experience in a similar communications role, be passionate and knowledgeable about Devon’s wildlife and will be able to work independently and as part of a team.
This is a full-time, fixed term appointment for 12 months based at Cricklepit Mill. DWT’s offices are currently operating special arrangements as part of the current public health guidance on a gradual return to work, therefore it is likely that you will be required to work from home initially. We will be moving towards agile working arrangements with a combination of office and home working in the longer term. The role may also involve some travel.
We can offer you good terms and conditions, flexible working arrangements and a great office environment. The successful candidate will be joining a team of committed, hardworking and friendly colleagues. This is a great opportunity to take the next step in your career within a leading Devon charity.
