London Wildlife Trust is looking for dedicated people with a passion for wildlife conservation, who can help us achieve our vision. 

Our values

  • Regard and respect
    We believe that London’s wild plants, animals and their habitats, are an essential part of the city and have a right to flourish.

  • Inclusivity and wellbeing
    We believe that everyone has a right to access and benefit from free, natural spaces and a high quality natural environment in their own neighbourhood.

  • Curiosity and passion
    We are curious and passionate about nature in London and people’s relationships with wildlife, and are prepared to challenge policies and actions that lead to the deterioration of the city’s natural fabric.

  • Rigour and integrity
    We take actions and decisions that are open, transparent, just and are based on evidence. In doing so we will respect the environment, nature, and people.

  • Collaboration and can do attitude
    We will work in partnership with others to ensure that London’s wildlife and wild spaces are protected and enhanced, for now and in the future.

Equality and diversity

We value and promote diversity and are committed to equal opportunity for all. We aim to create a working environment in which all individuals are able to make best use of their skills, free from discrimination. We strongly believe that the best organisations are those that reflect the communities they serve and welcome a diverse population of staff and volunteers who are able to make a real contribution to the work of London Wildlife Trust.

Why work for us?

From engaging campaigns to protect and conserve our wildlife, along with consistent conservation and research; to outdoor engagement and people and wildlife projects - there are many ways to get involved in the work of London Wildlife Trust.


Unfortunately we do not accept speculative CVs and cannot keep CVs on file for future recruitment. Each vacancy is recruited for as it occurs, and we require job applicants to apply for each vacancy they are interested in to ensure equality in our recruitment processes. 

Overseas candidates

London Wildlife Trust is unable to consider overseas candidates who require sponsorship to work in the UK. However if you are from outside of the European Economic Area but do have a Work Permit to work in the UK (e.g. people with right of permanent residence in the UK, students and commonwealth nationals) we would like to hear from you. If you have a question on your right to work in the UK please contact the Home Office.

Recruitment agencies

We do not use employment agencies for recruitment and request that we are not contacted by email or phone by agencies - thank you. We prefer to channel the resources we have into achieving our charitable aims, and therefore need to limit the volume of recruitment requests we receive. On the rare occasions we need to use recruitment agencies to widen our reach, we source agencies directly.


Why not take a look at the other ways you can get involved with our work? London Wildlife Trust has a range of volunteering opportunities.
