We're looking for someone with an enthusiasm for nature conservation who will provide support and technical consultation to the National Trust’s properties, allowing them to achieve sustainable standards of conservation in line with the Trust's Land, Outdoor and Nature Strategy. If you have excellent people skills, an ecological background and an ability to interpret data then we want to hear from you!

What it's like to work here

The National Trust Consultancy is the home to specialists in every field of our work. A national consultancy, where resources are shared across disciplines and boundaries, is proving to be a great repository of skills, talent and experience. The diversity and quality of expertise within the Consultancy will enable our properties and places to benefit from an extraordinary range of creative and innovative thinking, as well as deep expertise in all matters relating to our twin purpose of caring for the nation’s heritage and landscapes, and making these accessible to all.
