About WWF-UK


What is it like to work for WWF-UK

Giving Something Back
Giving Something Back
To give back to the wider world, aside from the work that they do as an organisation, they have a wood chip burning boiler installed in their Scottish office which burns FSC wood chip pellets sourced locally to provide hot water and heat. They also have compost caddies at all tea points which are emptied into the wormery to reduce waste sent to land fill.

At WWF-UK they strive to create an open culture and people are actively encouraged to put forward ideas, suggestions, proposals or problems. As well as having an open door policy where people feel comfortable talking through their views with colleagues, managers and senior managers, people get the opportunity to attend all employee talks at least six times a year where they can ask questions of the senior managers, directors and others in the organisation. They run drop-in sessions with project teams and directors so people can go along and chat through their thoughts and ideas on particular areas of work and/or topical issues. They recently ran a ‘Question Time’ event where members of the Management Team answered questions as a panel. They also seek feedback through facilitated workshops and informal networks on key events and issues.
Fair Deal

The organisation seeks to reward employees for their efforts. The Panda's People Award was held for the first time last year with a view to it becoming an annual event. Employees were asked to nominate a colleague who has inspired them and there were 3 awards in different categories with prizes announced at the Panda's Winter Garden Party which was held to celebrate their 50th anniversary in November. The award categories link back to the core values, so that these are reinforced.
