Directory Entry : Norfolk Wildlife Trust is the oldest Wildlife Trust in the country. The purchase of 400 acres of marsh at Cley on the north Norfolk coast in 1926 to be held ‘in perpetuity as a bird breeding sanctuary’ provided a blueprint for nature conservation which has now been replicated across the UK.

We are excited to be able to offer two new Lead Officer roles. One based in the Woods and Heaths team, and the other in the Broads South team. The roles afford the opportunity to be able to use your skills for the conservation of natural habitats.

The Lead Officer posts will be involved in management of some of the region’s most important wildlife sites, and develop valuable skills in maintenance, restoration and protection of our nature reserves.

Most of our woodland nature reserves are ancient woodland, and include some of the best examples of bluebell woods in the county. The other sites within the area include important heath and mire, and are home to key species such as great crested newt, nightjar, woodlark, keeled skimmer dragonfly, and marsh gentian. Most are designated SSSIs; Foxley Wood is also an NNR.

NWT reserves within the Broads South area are managed for diverse species of wildlife and the many visitors that enjoy this unique area. Some of the species benefiting from the Trust’s management work are bittern, swallowtail butterfly, Norfolk hawker dragonfly, marsh harrier, otter and crane.

Our main benefits are:

•    Working for an organisation that makes a real difference to the wildlife and people of Norfolk.

•    25 days annual leave per annum (3 to be taken at Christmas) plus 8 statutory holidays. Annual leave rises by one day per year until a maximum of 30 days per annum is reached.

•    A working week of 37½ hrs per week with some out of hours work for which time off in lieu is granted.

•    Pension: we contribute 8% of your salary in to our scheme with Aviva from the start of your employment with a 2% minimum contribution.

•    Employee Assistance Programme

NWT owns and manages a diverse range of sites across Norfolk including the Trust’s nature reserves (around 66), 5 visitor centres and HQ at Bewick House in Norwich. The Trust employs around 75 staff as well as 500 volunteers working across the organisation.

Our apologies, unless you have been informed separately, previous applications for these roles will not be considered on this occasion.
