Assistant Warden
Reference number: A5050119
Location: Glasgow
Salary starting at £19,602 to £21,236 per annum
Hours: Full time 
Contract: Until end of August 2020

This post involves a wide, varied and exciting set of tasks working at two distinctly different yet equally beautiful nature reserves - Airds Moss with the continuation of the extensive blanket bog restoration projects already underway and Baron's Haugh, which is in a quasi-urban location on the edge of Motherwell where we are engaging with a diverse audience to bring them closer to the fascinating nature on their doorstep - each site presenting a unique set of challenges.

Your time will be split equally between the two reserves and in your role as Assistant Warden you will be supporting the Warden in charge of these sites. This will involve undertaking physical work on the ground, undertaking surveys for all kinds of flora and fauna, helping to manage volunteers, liaising with the public and generally making sure that our management plans for each reserve meet our very high standards. You will be employed by RSPB Scotland and your base will be in Glasgow at the South and West Scotland Regional Office. You will however have plenty of time spent "on reserve" - enough to satisfy even the most ardent "outdoors" person!

One half of this post which relates to Airds Moss, is funded by CABB (Conservation Across Borders for Biodiversity), please see the Additional Information pack for further information on this project.

This role is exempt from the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act. You will be asked to declare both spent and unspent convictions and cautions at offer of employment stage.

Closing date: 1 February 2019
Interview date: 8 February 2019
