The Role

Do you have an eye for a good story? Can you turn complex information into compelling storylines that get people talking, sharing and acting? If so, WWF is looking for you.

WWF, the world's leading independent conservation organisation, is looking for a Content Research Executive to help develop cutting-edge communications that engage the nation in our causes around the world, attract new supporters, and build a movement to accelerate the action urgently needed to actively restore our natural world.

Reporting to the Commissioning Editor, you will be responsible for finding and developing inspiring WWF stories, and commissioning compelling content to help reach and engage policy, business, media, public and fundraising audiences. You will also ensure all information and content is technically accurate, credible, consistent, and on-brand.


You will have a proven track record in researching and developing engaging stories for a variety of audiences, platforms and channels, and are able to turn technical or complex information into something appealing to a mass audience.

You have a strong appreciation of what makes, and ideally some experience in commissioning, compelling visual content.

You will have excellent attention to detail, ensuring all information and content is technically accurate, credible, consistent, on brand and based on the most up-to-date and well researched science, whilst remaining impactful and fit for purpose.

You will have a passion for the conservation of our natural world, and will be able to work well with others across WWF and externally.

You are able to work at pace, pragmatically and adapt to changing circumstances.

Who are we?

WWF believes in a future where people and nature thrive.

Best known as the world’s leading conservation body, we’ve seen first-hand how wildlife, the environment and human activity are all interlinked.

That’s why our passion for safeguarding the natural world has to be backed up by other environmental action – tackling the global threat of climate change (through our big global campaigns like Earth Hour) and helping people to change the way they live to ease pressure on natural resources.

WWF is at the heart of global activities in all these areas. We have teams of highly skilled professionals working with governments, businesses and communities here in the UK and around the world.
