Full Time, 37.5 hours per week

We are looking for creative and enthusiastic Conservation Campaign Manager, to deliver projects encouraging our visitors to carry out wildlife-friendly behaviours. Their primary responsibility will be to independently research, develop, coordinate and evaluate an annual behaviour-change campaign, and to publish the results in peer-reviewed journals.
The successful candidate will have excellent communication skills, able to build and maintain effective working relationships with all departments plus external stakeholders. Organisational skills are essential, with some experience in the management of staff, volunteers and budgets. The successful candidate must also be confident in the application of social science methods, survey design and analysis (using programmes such as SPSS), and ideally a publication record.
This is a major new area for this organisation, and will influence many of our current activities and ways we communicate with our visitors. Therefore the successful candidate will need to understand the process of influencing many aspects of the zoo’s daily operation, to ensure that the campaign has maximum impact.
