Sussex Wildlife Trust is a conservation charity for everyone who cares about nature in Sussex.  We focus on protecting the wonderfully rich natural life that is found across our towns, countryside and coast. By working alongside local people we create opportunities for us all to connect with nature and for nature to thrive in even the most unlikely places. Together we can make sure that future generations living in Sussex will be able to enjoy the sense of wonder and well-being that nature offers.


Sussex Wildlife Trust has a target to achieve Net Zero carbon emissions by 2030, but needs to understand its overall emission and sequestration figures as soon as possible, ideally reaching net zero emissions significantly sooner than 2030.  Net Zero for Sussex Wildlife Trust is set against a backdrop of a deeper understanding of the current and future role of our own Estate in carbon storage and potential sequestration.  This work sits under a broader organisational Climate Action Plan.

In order to embed the fast evolving national Carbon Agenda in Sussex Wildlife Trust policy and practice we are looking for an experienced and talented individual to work with technical experts within the Trust to take the numerous strands of this work forward over a nine month period.

You will have excellent communication skills with proven expertise in creating plain English interpretations of complex topics
