Norfolk Wildlife Trust is seeking an exceptional PR & Communications Manager to deliver excellent and integrated public relations and communications for the UK’s oldest wildlife trust and oversee a growing team of communications staff and volunteers.

You must be highly motivated, articulate and able to manage an ever growing need for engaging, timely and accurate communications on behalf of the Trust. 

Alongside delivering proactive and urgent reactive PR, you must be able to manage and direct production of a range of publications including our new look members magazine (for 36,000 members) and our growing online communications. 

The post requires excellent communication and organisational skills for an experienced PR and communications professional, able to inspire a hard-working and committed team and maximise profile for the Trust. The scale of our communications have grown considerably during the recent pandemic and we wish to build on this in an innovative and sustainable way that continues to raise awareness of our work for Norfolk’s nature and engage our 36,000 members and the wider public. 

This is an exciting opportunity ahead of NWT's centenary in 2026. 

Norfolk Wildlife Trust has an unrivaled reputation as the first, oldest, and among the largest of the 46 Wildlife Trusts. Since 1926 we have saved and stood up for wildlife and wild places. We have inspired people about the importance of nature in its own right and for the benefits, it can bring to the wellbeing of people and communities. And our ambitions continue: to demonstrate best practice on our nature reserves; to work with landowners and other stakeholders to provide healthy ecosystems across a connected landscape; to bring people even closer to nature; to empower staff and volunteers to develop their skills, and to share in The Wildlife Trusts’ national mission to make a positive conservation and environmental impact.

Our vision is a sustainable Living Landscape for wildlife and people, where the future of wildlife is protected and enhanced through sympathetic management and where people are connected with, inspired by, value, and care for Norfolk’s wildlife and wild spaces. We have come a long way in 95 years: 

  • We own and manage more than 60 nature reserves and protected sites covering an area of 2,400 hectares and are working on a landscape scale to rebuild and re-connect fragmented ecological areas.

  • We are supported by more than 35,000 members, about a third of which are outside Norfolk. Of all the Wildlife Trusts, we have the fourth-largest membership.

  • We manage the Norfolk County Wildlife Sites systems, where more than 1,300 sites covering 15,000 hectares.

  • We have more than 100 businesses enrolled in our Investors in Wildlife scheme.

  • Committed volunteers support every aspect of our work, from wildlife surveying to administration.

  • We have five visitor centres and a thriving education centre offering events, workshops, and exhibitions.

  • More than 7,000 students annually take part in educational activities in schools and on nature reserves.

  • We are active participants in the mission of The Wildlife Trusts to secure 30 percent of our land and sea for nature’s recovery by 2030.
