The Grants Team makes a major contribution to raising the funds we need for wildlife and community-focused conservation programmes in the UK and internationally, environmental education projects and the work that ensures that our wetland centres and reserves offer all that they can for wildlife and people.

This role of Grants Assistant provides an exciting opportunity to learn all about raising funds from a wide range of grant funders including charitable trusts, corporate trusts, statutory, landfill community and lottery funders. This post offers rapid career progression potential. You will manage your own portfolio of grant funder relationships, including making applications, compiling reports and developing relationships as well as supporting Grants Team colleagues in all aspects of your work.

We are looking for someone who is motivated to develop a career in this field; the ideal candidate will have some previous fundraising experience. We are looking for an organised, self-motivated and creative person with strong written and oral communication skills and numerical aptitude, who is confident dealing with stakeholders at all levels and managing their own workload.

The Wildfowl & Wetlands Trust (WWT) is a conservation charity that protects wetlands for wildlife and people. We conserve, restore and create wetlands. We are pioneers in saving wetland wildlife, both in the UK and around the world. At our 10 UK sites around a million visitors a year engage with wetland nature. We work internationally in key global wetland areas, balancing conservation with sustainable livelihoods and influencing national and international conservation policies.
