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, Diversity and Inclusion

We 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. Our employees come from many different backgrounds and have a wide range of vocational experience and/or education; what unites us is a passion for nature conservation.

In order to achieve our goal of engaging everyone in protecting London’s wildlife for the future, we know that our staff team needs to better reflect and represent all of London’s communities. Therefore we particularly welcome applicants who identify as being from a Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic background, and disabled people, as these groups are currently under-represented at London Wildlife Trust.

Talent Policy and Recruitment of Ex-Offenders

London Wildlife Trust supports the aims on BITC's Ban the Box campaign, which is increasing fair opportunities for people with criminal records to compete for jobs.

We will only ask about criminal convictions for roles deemed necessary, for example, where the role may involve working with children. We will only ask at conditional offer stage before conducting an enhanced DBS check. Criminal convictions will not automatically exclude someone from working with us; any previous convictions will be risk assessed depending on their nature and the position applied for.

Your information will be treated fairly and confidentially. Please contact our HR department (recruitment@wildlondon.org.uk) for a copy of our full Talent Policy or to speak to HR confidentially for any help or guidance.
