The Bumblebee Conservation Trust (the Trust) is looking for a full-time Senior Land Management Advisor to play a vital role in enhancing bumblebee habitat through our land management consultancy work. 

You will be responsible for managing and delivering a project for a long-term client based in Suffolk. In addition, you will provide a professional, high-quality land management advice service to a variety of clients on a consultancy basis. You will also identify and build new client relationships and opportunities for generating income.

As part of the conservation team and alongside a Conservation Projects Manager, you will support the day-to-day work of a Land Management Advisor. You will work closely with the Senior Partnerships Officer in our fundraising team to enhance the Trust’s income through business relationships. Your role will contribute to achieving our strategic aim – ‘There is more, better-connected, high-quality habitat for bumblebees across our cities, towns and countryside.’ 

You will be a dynamic, self-reliant individual with a track record of ecological assessment, delivering land management advice and with an interest in invertebrates, particularly pollinating insects. You will be able to apply your ecological knowledge in a range of contexts to meet the needs of clients whilst ensuring bumblebees will benefit. You will have strong communication skills and be able to inspire a range of audiences to follow the advice given. You will have experience of developing and maintaining effective relationships with clients.
