Membership income generates £290 million a year. It’s critical to our work, and we want to inspire more people to enjoy the special places we look after, for everyone, for ever. To do this, we need inspirational people just like you to help us.
We look after over 250,000 hectares of land – of which 41% is nationally important for nature – as well as over 780 miles of coastline, and protect everything from castles and countryside to butterflies and bats. We do it all – and more – so that we can ensure everyone benefits from all that we have to offer for many years to come. Our work is only possible thanks to the support of our almost 6 million members. As part of the team, you’ll help to attract, recruit, retain and inspire even more people to become valued members and supporters.
We’re constantly looking at new ways we can engage people from across the UK. And that means big, exciting things for our Membership team. How do we inspire people to support us, who’ve never considered it before? How do we give back to our current members and excite them with what we have to offer? With deeper insights than ever before, we can be innovative in how we attract and connect with both new and loyal members. We also work closely with our Communications & Marketing and Property teams to grow our support. With us, you’ll receive all the training and professional support you need to do great things in your career and for our members.
Head of Supporter Recruitment
Supporters are at the heart of the National Trust. What’s great about it is that our work is never done – we’re always striving to do better. There are always new, more innovative ways to grow our support through delivering great service, which is a challenge I thoroughly enjoy.
Growing Support Consultant
I joined the National Trust to work for a cause, and to play my part in a brilliant organisation whose core values align with my own. People are at the heart of everything we do here at the Trust. I feel very lucky to work for a charity that protects and cares for the places that provide the backdrop to some of our visitors’ happiest memories. As a Growing Support Consultant, no two days are ever the same; we’re involved with lots of aspects of our cause, across many of our varied special places. Rarely does a day go by where I’m not inspired by a supporter story, one of our volunteers, or an amazing member of staff who’s gone above and beyond. I’m always learning, and the Trust is a very supportive place to work and develop.
I love getting to know our supporters, and to find out why they’re passionate about our places. I learn something new every day, as visitors are always keen to share their favourite highlights and memories. It’s really satisfying to then carry it forward and provide these experiences for other people. We have a really passionate team, all of whom are fun to work with, which is really helpful when it comes to solving problems and creating great experiences for our visitors. Seeing our team grow and confidently take on new challenges is really energising, and watching visitors enjoy the results of all our hard work is very fulfilling.
