Rewilding Europe is recruiting!

November 14, 2018

Do you hear the call of the wild? Would you like to be a leading part of a dynamic, progressive initiative dedicated to making Europe a wilder place?


With exciting projects now mushrooming across Europe, the high-profile rewilding movement is playing an increasingly influential and impactful role in European conservation.  Founded in 2011, Rewilding Europe is spearheading this movement, with operational areas stretching all the way  from Lapland and Portugal to Romania and Bulgaria.

A registered Dutch charity, Rewilding Europe has a home office in the city of Nijmegen, while our central team comprises members based in seven different European countries. As part of this group, our seven-member management team contains the key personnel responsible for the overall initiative.

We are now looking to strengthen and reshape this core team, and are recruiting for three exciting, lead positions:

  • a Head of Rewilding, who oversees and develops our entire rewilding agenda;
  • a Head of Communications, who oversees and develops our entire communications agenda;
  • and a Rewilding Area Coordinator, who acts as the interface and coordinator of large-scale rewilding initiatives, with a focus on central and northwest Europe.

In addition to relevant background and experience, these roles all require strong leadership, communications and management skills. They will involve both strategic and operational work (with a continuous shift between the two), and a very energetic, hands-on and entrepreneurial attitude to ensure our innovative and pioneering initiative continues to forge ahead.

If you’re a conservation-focused mover and shaker and think you have what it takes, please send your CV and motivational letter to before Wednesday 5 December 17.00 hrs CET. Please also send any queries regarding these positions to this address.
