Surrey Wildlife Trust

Volunteer & Communities Officer

c£25,500 per annum dependent on experience

‘Our vision for a wilder Surrey is a future with abundant wildlife and nature recovery networks rich in biodiversity.’

Working with our Community Engagement Manager, we are looking for an enthusiastic person to engage a wider audience, helping us to further build our strong, informed and reliable group of volunteers to champion wildlife and the Trust’s work; we want to significantly extend our reach to educate and influence individuals across Surrey to encourage them to realise the value of nature.

To support this ambition, we will also be building our training provision for volunteers, trainees and young people and developing career opportunities.

If you are a highly organised individual with excellent interpersonal skills, who can deliver the Trust’s objectives via working with volunteers from a wide variety of backgrounds, educational needs, ages and abilities, utilising your passion to educate, enthuse and motivate others, this is the role for you.

You must have some previous experience of successfully working with, organising and leading volunteers and the ability to reach and inspire others in nature conservation. An out-going, personable and friendly personality with the ability to work with a wide range of people is essential coupled with a passion for the natural joy of nature.

The job will involve being outdoors for many days of the year, as well as regular admin office based time, and a driving licence is essential as our locations cannot easily be accessed by public transport.

We are committed to having an inclusive and diverse workplace and encourage applications from backgrounds which may be underrepresented in our sector, including people from minority ethnic backgrounds and people with disabilities.

Please apply using the Application Form to Catherine Roberts, HR Director, by midday Monday 4th March 2024.
