Conservation Officer
Reference number: 7DaZd-11
Location: Norfolk and Lincolnshire

Salary starting at: £25,463 to £27,585 per annum - Applicants should expect under normal circumstances to receive an offer at the bottom of the advertised range
Hours: Full time
Contract: Permanent

You will work closely with the Senior Conservation Officer and the Area Team to deliver a range of work to conserve and enhance the amazing habitats and species of The Wash and North Norfolk Coast. This may include work to protect breeding waders and beach nesting birds, developing projects to create new habitat for waterfowl and other wildlife, and championing policies that would protect nature and help species adapt to a changing climate. We are seeking someone with a passion for nature and a clear commitment to protecting the area's most important wildlife and habitats.

Delivering this work will require working effectively with existing and new partners to achieve our conservation objectives. We are therefore seeking a highly-motivated individual with energy, enthusiasm and initiative to build, shape and coordinate our work with partners, land managers and other stakeholders around The Wash and North Norfolk Coast.

To build strong partnerships we are looking for an individual who can communicate effectively and knowledgably to a range of people and organisations. You will be able to persuade and inspire; demonstrating a passion for finding solutions and identifying win-wins for nature and people.

Experience of casework (dealing with planning, policy or site safeguard work) would be desirable, but your ability to build positive relationships and quickly learn and apply new knowledge will be most important. Experience of supporting and/or delivering work at a landscape-scale would also be desirable.

If this sounds like the job for you then we'd love to hear from you.
