At a time of critical change and opportunity for our rivers and their associated habitats and their future we have created a key role to help champion, campaign, and advocate for clean and healthy rivers. 

RWT’s campaigning efforts have significantly helped to put the River Wye on the political agenda. We work with partners both nationally and locally to win support for meaningful action and change, while delivering advice and practical management in the catchment, across the wider team. 

Join a vibrant and energetic team, living and working in Mid Wales, and work with colleagues delivering landscape scale work focused on the uplands, rivers and our own estate, which includes Gilfach Nature Reserve and Wilder Pentwyn Farm. 

You’ll work closely with colleagues at The Wildlife Trust and Wildlife Trust Wales, building action with partner organisations and community groups across the catchment, sharing common messages and calls for action across Wales. 

With elections in both locally and in Welsh Assembly elections over the next 2 years, following a new government in Westminster, there will be a concerted focus on ensuring actions for clean and healthy rivers feature in debates and discussions and that there is a clear understanding that connected landscapes and wildlife-rich habitats, giving space to nature, are well funded and supported at all levels of decision making. 

As a Wildlife Trust, we fundamentally understand the value of healthy environments and the codependency of people and nature. Our community is made up of people who see the value in healthy eco-systems and healthy rivers. It is also people that will be directly impacted by the changes we foresee in the Wye catchment happening. Livelihoods will be lost if farming is unable to continue due to loss of income, livelihoods will be lost if the rivers flood with greater regularity and intensity, unchecked, and damage local communities.
