ABOUT US
The Woodland Trust is the UK's leading woodland conservation charity. We want to see a UK rich in native woods and trees, for people and wildlife. The Trust aims to engage and inspire people about woods and trees to help us meet our vision of creating, restoring and protecting woodland. We own and care for over 1,000 woodland sites across the United Kingdom and support the creation and management of woodland on land outside the Trust's own estate.

THE ROLE
We are looking for a Regional Fundraising Development Officer, responsible for identifying and realising regional fundraising opportunities in our North & Central regions, raising funds for specific projects and meeting fundraising targets, as well as creating and developing new opportunities and relationships.

The role is varied and includes fundraising from major donors, grants, trusts, regional and local site based opportunities as well as through individuals and organisations whilst working closely with colleagues across the region and within the Fundraising department.

THE CANDIDATE
You'll have experience of being part of the delivery of demanding and high profile projects, with degree level or equivalent experience, ideally within both major donor and grants fundraising. You will need to be able to identify and develop meaningful relationships.

Results driven and self-motivated, you'll have the ability to implement the team's strategies and fundraising operations.

Please note a full driving licence is required and you must be able to undertake travel across your region as well as nationally, sometimes to remote locations. There will also be evening and weekend work when required.

WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT
There's no other organisation like the Woodland Trust. Whatever you do here you will be supporting our work to protect and enhance woods and trees. 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.
