Are you looking for an opportunity to gain new skills and progress your career in biodiversity and nature conservation? If so, then you will be perfect for the Natural History Communicator role with the Natural History Society of Northumbria (NHSN).

What the NHSN do:

NHSN is one of the UK’s oldest nature conservation and natural history societies with a passion for all aspects of natural history. Their purpose is to encourage the widest public participation in the study and protection of the natural world, especially the nature of North East England. NHSN achieve this by bringing together natural history expertise and enthusiasm from across the region to help deliver citizen science, natural history talks, lifelong learning, work with schools and community groups, field visits, digital content, publications, and management of Gosforth Nature Reserve.

What you’ll do:

You will have enthusiasm for UK wildlife, and all aspects of natural history, including the ecological, social history of naturalists and cultural representation of nature. No specialist natural history knowledge is expected.

In this role you will be responsible for:

  • Engaging people across North East England and inspiring them to take action for North East nature.
  • Writing, facilitating, and coordinating content for use across NHSN communication channels.
  • Developing and delivering regional citizen science projects
  • Coordinating and supporting the planning, organisation and delivery of communications and engagement opportunities.

The ideal candidate will be a team player, with enthusiasm and commitment to nature conservation. They must be keen to learn and have a “can-do” attitude and be a passionate ambassador for the charity.

You will be joining NHSN at an exciting time as they implement a new 3-year organisation plan with the ambition of reaching and inspiring a wider range of people, raising awareness and action of the climate and ecological emergency, and encouraging more people to understand and protect nature.
