You will be responsible for maintaining and enhancing a suite of nature reserves in this area of the county and delivering a range of exciting project based work in the wider landscape.

The successful candidate will have hands on experience in a range of land management practices for nature conservation, an understanding of agricultural systems and skills in wildlife identification, specifically botany. Personable and approachable, you will be comfortable meeting with farmers, partner organisations, community groups and volunteers as you engage more people in our work, advocating for the Trust and creating more space for nature.
