This post will initially focus on gathering (and where necessary interpreting) existing available data identified by the strategy. Where required, creation of methodologies for further specific survey and monitoring of species, habitats and infrastructure would follow and as information is generated by monitoring actions, the post holder will manage, analyse and where necessary interpret the data.

The Reserves Monitoring Officer will work closely with the NWT IT team in the subsequent development of a dedicated data management system as information streams are better understood. The post will be approximately 60% desk based and will play a key role through advocacy and effective communication in incorporating volunteers in the delivery of the monitoring strategy.

  • 20 days annual leave per annum plus statutory holidays, rising incrementally to 25 days per annum. It is also customary for an additional 3 days to be given over Christmas and New Year.
  • Pension: employer contributes 7% of salary equivalent after completion of trial period, increasing to 8% after 3 years of continuous service

Norfolk Wildlife Trust seeks a sustainable Living Landscape for wildlife and people:

  • Where the future of wildlife is protected and enhanced through sympathetic management,
