The organisation has grown significantly in recent years and there is now a requirement to rationalise and improve our operational support so that the delivery teams and other support staff can focus on delivering the goals of the charity. 

ICT is a key part of this new post, but you do not need to be an ICT specialist. The Trust already uses Office 365 and Teams; managing this in future mainly requires good administrative skills and a sound grasp of standard software packages. Specific training will be provided if needed, and anything technical can be referred to our ICT support contractor. 

About you

Ideally have experience in /of:

  • Health and safety management

  • Buildings and facilities management

  • Negotiating and managing contracts

Experience of the above and experience in a similar job would be ideal, but if you can demonstrate that you have acquired the necessary skills in a different role or sector and can apply them here we would welcome your application.

We value courage, respect, integrity, trust and responsibility. Whilst we are passionate in promoting our aims we are not judgemental and are inclusive. We want our people to be as diverse as nature, so we particularly encourage applications from people who are underrepresented within our sector, including people from minority backgrounds and people with disabilities. We are committed to creating a movement that recognises and truly values individual differences and identities. 

As a Disability Confident employer, we are committed to offering an interview to anyone with a disability that meets all the essential criteria for the post. Please let us know if you require any adjustments to make our recruitment process more accessible.


Shropshire Wildlife Trust (SWT) works across Shropshire (including Telford & Wrekin) to confront the ‘triple emergency’ of climate crisis, ecological crisis, and people’s inequitable connection with nature. We combine advocacy and campaigning with projects to restore nature and to engage people. We manage 41 nature reserves, and we have 46 staff, 500 volunteers, and over 9000 members. SWT is an autonomous charity, but we are increasingly working collectively as part of The Wildlife Trusts (TWT) to ensure that our local actions have a national impact and help to address global issues.
