The Woodland Trust is embarking on an ambitious 10 year vision which is aimed at strengthening the role of woods and trees in our landscape and communities, with a strong focus on the connection between people, woods and trees. Part of the vision includes a focus on developing a more localised approach to engaging with our members and the wider public through our woodlands and partnerships, providing great engagement opportunities and high quality visitor experiences which will attract large numbers of visitors to our sites and generate volunteering opportunities that add value to our work.
The Communications & Engagement Officer will join our Woodland Operations team, delivering the Trust’s UK communications, engagement and events programmes, onsite visitor experience and providing support for volunteering programmes which engage and inspire communities, individuals and partners.
You’ll be experienced in engaging communities through effective events and communications, working with volunteers and building relationships with partners.

Regular travel will be required throughout the region to support staff and people engagement programmes. You’ll be expected to attend regular meetings at the Woodland Trust head office in Grantham therefore a full driving licence is essential along with the ability to undertake travel across a wide area, sometimes to remote locations.
In return, we recognise and value our people. You’ll have our full support, training and opportunities for professional development, along with a contributory pension, life assurance and good holiday entitlement.
