Hours: Part time, 22.5 Hours Per Week
Contract: 24 months

This is an exciting opportunity to be an important part of our team working on the Hanson-RSPB Wetland Project that is delivering a 460ha wetland over a 30 year period. Since 1999 the project has grown RSPB Ouse Fen to 218ha and in 2020 we are due to receive a further 80ha and construct our new visitor entrance.

As part of the project team you will work in partnership with Hanson UK to deliver the habitat restoration works that are successfully attracting our key species; bittern, bearded tit and marsh harrier. You will work with contractors and consultants to ensure quality restoration is achieved and ensure that water management will enable us to effectively manage the habitat.

Your enthusiasm for nature will help us work towards the next phase of our visitor experience offer so that we can more widely share the success of this landscape scale restoration project. As well as helping to plan the opening of our new visitor entrance, you will work to ensure that it provides a high quality access point to the heart of the wetland restoration.

You will champion this project's delivery of vital new habitat through a project that delivers for nature whilst also meeting local economic and society needs. You will use various communication channels to spread news of the success of this project and work on demonstrating its success to policy makers and the aggregates industry.

If your motivation for saving nature matches this ambitious project then we look forward to receiving your application.
