Head of Marketing and Communications



Salary: £35,000-40,000 per annum

Following a period of growth, Wildscreen is looking for a purpose-driven, creative and experienced communicator who will develop and execute innovative and effective marketing and communications campaigns to grow and scale their reach and impact here in the UK and internationally.

About the role

Wildscreen has been at the forefront of natural world storytelling for over 40 years, now we need someone to amplify our story.

We are a conservation charity. Our mission is to connect people with nature through storytelling.

2024 is a big year for us, it will not only host the next edition of the Wildscreen Festival, the world’s biggest global gathering of the wildlife film and TV industry, but it will also see us grow our yearround events programme both here in the UK and internationally, with a focus on the global south.

We’ve also just announced the return of our much loved Wildscreen ARK platform, the world’s biggest online nature education hub, with a prototype launching early 2024. There’s a lot going on!

We are looking for someone who is innovative and tactical, with a strong track record in developing and implementing engaging multi-platform marketing and comms strategies that will drive audience and income growth across our events, membership and outreach projects. You’ll be a powerful communicator passionate about helping more people to connect with nature.

You should be comfortable managing and overseeing many projects at one time, across teams, and be used to working in a fast-paced environment such as a start-up or small charity. We are a small, collaborative, nimble team so we are looking for a teammate who can think big picture but will also muck in and ‘do the doing’.

Location: Hybrid working. Minimum two days per week in our central Bristol office.
Salary: £35-40k per annum (pro-rated for part-time hours), dependent on experience
Contract: 4 days per week (30 hours per week), 1-year fixed-term contract. Potential to extend funding permitting
