Slimbridge Wetland Centre (Gloucestershire) / London Wetland Centre / Martin Mere Wetland Centre (Lancashire) with the opportunity for hybrid working
£33,403 per annum
37.5 hours per week - Job shares and compressed hours will be considered
Fixed Term Contract for 12 months initially, with a potential three year extension.

We are looking for someone with the drive, skills and experience to lead our latest nature connection project for schools, children and families in disadvantaged areas. Generation Wild is engaging thousands of primary-age children with nature.


Our learning teams have a real passion for breaking down the barriers preventing disadvantaged children from connecting with nature. Working within this team and with the support of external contractors, WWT experts, teachers, learners and our site-based learning teams, you will manage delivery of the project across seven of our UK wetland centres.

This provides an exciting opportunity for someone to come in, evaluate project success to date and use the learning from this to help shape a new phase of the project. They will effectively plan, monitor and evaluate project activities, supporting their implementation across a range of sites.

The project was initially funded for three years to August 2024. We are currently involved in positive discussions with the funder in order to extend the project by a further three years.

For this role, we can offer flexibility around working from home. It is expected the role will need to work from their site base a few times a month and as required for key meetings. Travel will also be a necessary part of this role, visiting our sites across the UK to support the learning teams and observe the project in action. A willingness to travel regularly to other WWT locations is essential, staying away from home as and when required.

When visiting our website, you will notice that this position is referred to as Generation Wild Project Manager. This is how the role is known internally within WWT.
