The Wildfowl & Wetlands Trust (WWT) is a wetland conservation charity that works in the UK and around the world.
We’re driven by a love of nature. These amazing habitats are essential to all life, including our own. But across the world, their health is under threat, and that’s damaging for wildlife, the planet, and for us.
Healthy wetlands are one of the most nature-rich habitats on earth and they help control our climate. They store carbon, prevent flooding, reduce pollution, and the livelihoods of many communities entirely depend on them. The first civilisations grew up around wetlands, and today they remain a source of inspiration and wellbeing.
That’s why we work directly to protect, restore and create healthy wetlands, and why we inspire and help others to do the same.
We make change happen, through our conservation projects around the world and our pioneering wetland centres across the UK, where each year a million people come to engage with nature.
About the role
We have a wealth of stories to tell and stunning imagery to bring them to life. We’re looking for an experienced and strategic Content Manager to harness that potential and deliver an editorial plan that both speaks to our audiences and furthers our objectives.
We’re a complex organisation, running multiple conservation projects and networks in the UK and around the world, as well as our own network of wetland sites in the UK. The Content Manager is a key role in making that work relevant to our supporters and stakeholders. To succeed, you’ll need a flair for making sense of complex information and an inherent understanding of the audience. As well as the confidence to persuade others of the merits of your editorial decisions.
In the role, you’ll lead on commissioning and creating multi-media content for use across our channels, to help build our brand and support specific campaigns and projects. You’ll work with your colleagues in Brand and Content to plan delivery through a mix of in-house and agency resources. You’ll also manage a team of five, with skills that cover copywriting, film and photography, and editing.
You’ll act as the lead for several channels including our website, YouTube and our podcast (currently in development), measuring, analysing and reporting on performance, and making recommendations for improvement. In addition, you’ll be closely involved with our other channels including our magazine, email programme and social media.
In return for your hard work and dedication, you’ll enjoy a wide range of benefits including:
- 25 days’ annual leave plus bank holidays increasing to 30 days after 5 years’ service
- Contributory pension scheme (conditions apply)
- Life assurance
- Free parking and secure bike storage areas
- Cycle to work scheme
- Free entry to all our centres
WWT is an equal opportunities employer and all applications will be considered solely on merit.
