We are looking for someone to assist our ambitious new project to establish more trees and scrub in our landscape by providing admin support to the team, including assisting with woodland creation grant applications, mapping and organising woodland creation data, and some simple communication work. The post is temporary until 31 March 2025.

Heart of the Pennines Forest is a three-year project, a collaboration between the North Pennines AONB Partnership, Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority, and the Yorkshire Dales Millennium Trust, which will establish the kinds of tree cover which are a good fit for our landscape and work alongside High Nature Value farming systems (small scale woodland planting and low-density wood pasture with scrub and scattered canopy trees). Also included in the project are a deer monitoring and control strategy, a small native upland tree nursery and the creation of several Traineeships.

You will help the officers to produce GIS based maps for woodland and scrub creation projects, manage the expenditure and income for the project using the systems of our host local authority, provide support to the advisory group and other sub-groups (such as meeting scheduling and minute taking), and generally support the team with its work. You may also be asked to draft text for reports to funders or for use in simple web information for the public.

Applicants should have a degree or equivalent qualification in any subject, and/or significant experience of administrative work in a conservation setting. Supporting the delivery of conservation projects and programmes through administrative duties and communications it essential.

We are running an optional on-line Q&A session for anyone who would like to meet the AONB staff team before deciding whether or not to make an application. This will be held at 5:30pm on Monday 16th May on Zoom, jointly with applicants for the Woodland and Tree Officer roles. If you would like to be sent the link, please email [email protected].

£26,446 to £30,095 pro rata (22.5 hours per week)
