CVs

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.
