Can you help conserve Herefordshire’s Ice Age Ponds?

Herefordshire Wildlife Trust are working in partnership with Herefordshire Amphibian and Reptile Team, and the Herefordshire and Worcestershire Earth Heritage Trust to survey and conserve the glacial ‘kettle hole’ ponds of Herefordshire. These unusual features are geologically fascinating and, due to their unique history, often represent important ecosystems for a variety of plants, invertebrates, amphibians, and mammals. Our project seeks to work with the communities, schools and landowners, providing opportunities to learn about and survey these ponds through the acquisition of new skills and ultimately working towards their conservation. The project has received initial National Lottery support and Development funding has been awarded to help progress plans to apply for a full National Lottery grant at a later date. Consequently, we are recruiting a Project Manager to manage the development phase of the project with the potential to extend the post subject to a successful application for delivery phase funding.

If you have experience in ecology (preferably wetland conservation) and project management we would be very interested to hear from you.

A full driving licence and your own vehicle will be required as the post holder will often need to travel within the project area. Some weekend, Bank Holiday and evening working will also be required.

This post will commence November 2018 until the end of August 2019 with the possibility of an extension subject to funding.

For full details and an application pack, please go to email or call Andrew Nixon on 01432 356872.

Deadline for submission is 5pm Friday 19th October 2018. Interviews will be on Friday 26th October 2018
