Public Programming Manager

Contract: Permanent
Hours: Full time (35 hours)
Salary: £26,000 – £28,000 per annum
Location: Earth Trust, Little Wittenham

The role

We have an exciting opportunity for a new role to join our team at Earth Trust as a Public Programming Manager.

It has never been more critical to provide access to green space and to engage people deeply with nature – for our wellbeing and to inspire action to protect the natural world for the future.

We are creating a step change in Earth Trust’s public programming offer, delivering experiences and events that connect our visitors with nature and inspire an understanding of their environment, their place in it and their role in caring for it.

This new role will take the lead in our public programming, to effectively deliver our narrative and stories to a range of audiences, both on site and digitally, while contributing to income generation.

We are looking for someone with experience of initiating, planning, delivering and evaluating creative programmes and visitor experiences. You will be a natural collaborator, working together with colleagues, partners and suppliers to achieve common goals.

About us

Earth Trust is an environmental charity with 40 years’ experience in caring for and inspiring others with green spaces. We believe that connection to nature can catalyse action to protect the environment, as well as provide vital mental and physical wellbeing benefits for people.

Together with our supporters, Earth Trust is guardian of some extremely special and inspiring places full of nature and heritage. We care for 500 hectares of woodland, farmland, wildflower meadows and wetlands, which receive 200,000 visits a year.

We use these amazing places to engage people and to demonstrate nature-based solutions to climate, biodiversity and public health crises, that we hope others will take and use elsewhere. We work to champion access to green space for everyone, to deepen engagement with nature, and to share our learnings about managing land in a way that is gentle on the earth.


Earth Trust strives to be a diverse and inclusive place where we can all be ourselves and we are committed to equality of opportunity for all staff.  Individuals are encouraged to apply regardless of age, disability, gender, sexual orientation, pregnancy and maternity, race or ethnicity, religion or belief.  We also offer family friendly, flexible working arrangements, with forums and inclusive facilities to support our staff.

Alongside a competitive salary, there is flexible working whenever possible, 23 days holiday per annum increasing with length of service, volunteering opportunities, pension scheme, onsite parking and plenty of coffee & cake! You will be joining a small but motivated team who are passionate about making a difference to climate sustainability, biodiversity and wellbeing.
