Wetlands are amazing, providing us with the essentials of life. However, they are also under pressure and 2021 is going to be a critical year for determining their future.

This year we have exciting proposals to respond to the climate, nature and wellbeing crises as well as the Covid-19 pandemic by using wetlands as nature-based solutions to deliver a wide range of broader societal benefits. We are calling for a ‘blue recovery’, creating a legacy of blue infrastructure through the restoration and creation of 100,000 hectares of multi-benefit wetlands.

The policy and advocacy team provide political intelligence, develop policy and deliver advocacy to make this happen, identifying opportunities, building partnerships and securing a supportive policy and funding framework. We are looking to build our capacity here, and grow our team. This is an exciting time to be joining WWT; if you are a strategic thinker, a persuasive advocate and a committed campaigner with a passion for people and nature, we’d love to hear from you.

We have a flexible approach to where you are based, but you must be prepared to travel to our HQ at Slimbridge in Gloucestershire and to London on a regular basis.

In return for your excellent work and dedication you’ll enjoy a wide range of benefits including:

25 days annual leave plus bank holidays increasing to 30 days after 5 years’ service
Contributory pension scheme (conditions apply)
Life assurance
Free parking (when working at the Centre)
Cycle to work scheme
Free entry to all our centres

Closing date:  Sunday 28th February

Interview date:  15th & 16th March

WWT is an equal opportunities employer and all applications will be considered solely on merit.
