Who we are

Our people


Passionate and resourceful. Loyal and positive.

Our shared passion to produce a thriving countryside rich in wildlife and game runs throughout the Trust. We’re proud that everyone at the Trust upholds these principles. Our organisation would not have been able to stay at the cutting edge of conservation research for over 80 years without them.

Our staff show great dedication, passion and loyalty, many having made valuable contributions to science at the Trust and wider society over decades of service. Many people have served at the Trust for over ten years, allowing them to develop along with the organisation.

Staff are expected to be open-minded and forward thinking throughout the organisation. We are at the forefront of providing novel and effective solutions to difficult conservation problems; this spirit of innovation is reflected in all areas of the Trust.

Our Organisation

Openness and integrity underpin the work undertaken throughout the Trust. Our research is peer-reviewed and widely published, giving others the chance to assess the findings we make.

This encourages us to be evidence-led. The projects we undertake, the advice we provide and the opportunities we seek are all given careful consideration and are keenly scrutinised.

We actively encourage staff learning and development. We are delighted that this is reflected in the number of students who return as full members of staff. A focus on nurturing staff, be they researchers and advisors in the field or vital IT and accounts support, allows us to develop strong, well-established relationships across all departments of the Trust. Our interest in partnership working, both internally and with other national and international organisations, is a vital part of the Trust’s achievements and promotes development and co-operation.
