Strong communication skills and an ability to build relationships with external stakeholders will be required. You will also need a good understanding of the ecology and needs of priority species and habitats within the area. This role will also be expected to contribute to other project work in the wider area focussing on priority species and habitats, which may include site safeguard casework, species recovery, and conservation projects, meaning that flexible attitude and approach will be essential.
