Assistant Development Officer at City of Trees (Greater Manchester)

My current role is varied but still fun and I love it! I work for one of England’s Community Forests and Manchester City of Trees covers the Greater Manchester Area. We are an organisation dedicated to planting a tree for every citizen within our region within the next five years. I primarily work on the Ignition project.

Having studied BSc Hons Animal Behaviour/Wildlife Biology at Manchester Metropolitan University, I am particularly interested in specialist species, climate resilience towards highly urbanised areas using nature-based solutions and climate justice.

I started my role at City of Trees after finishing my studies in MSc Conservation Management at Edge Hill University.

I have spent time as a placement student for the Lancashire Wildlife Trust at Brockholes Nature Reserve, alongside volunteering for other organisations such as Better Century (social media platform for environmental awareness and climate change) and Plover Rovers (a marine charity that specialises in raising awareness of ‘Ocean Literacy’).

I am currently a member of the REED Ecological Network and I would be happy to support where I can. I joined the network for opportunities, professional skills/career development, networking and finding out more about representation within the UK environmental sector.
