Wilder Events Champion

Back in 2019, Hampshire & Isle of Wight Wildlife Trust launched its Wilder 2030 strategy. We want 30% of our lands and sees to be wilder by 2030. But we cannot do this without the power and support that comes from community action. That's why we set up Team Wilder (hiwwt.org.uk/team-wilder).

Team Wilder is a network of individuals and groups who're taking action for nature.

In this role, you will work with Hampshire & Isle of Wight Wildlife Trust to raise the profile of Team Wilder and encourage others in your local area to make a change for the benefit of wildlife and people.

This role will be shaped by you and depends on what skills and passions you bring to the table.

Using your art, your craft, your knowledge, and your skills, you can directly or indirectly inspire people to take action for nature.

Activities may include (depending on skills and experience):

- Going to fairs and other community events to share information on Team Wilder and get people to join.

- If you’re particularly passionate about or experienced in a wildlife related subject or hobby (e.g. if you’re a biologist or a photographer etc), you can host walks and talks about that on behalf of the Wildlife Trust.

- Helping the Wildlife Trust staff with planning large events. You’ll be helping with organising and planning the event from finding a venue and putting the entertainment together to advertising and writing social media communications.

Skills

A driving license and access to a car is desirable, but not essential.

You do not need any special skills or knowledge to take part, but an enthusiasm for wildlife is essential and you enjoy talking to people.

If you do have any specialist knowledge or skills that you think would be beneficial, please mention them when applying.
