Description  

Surrey Wildlife Trust is one of 46 Wildlife Trusts across the UK, a grassroots movement working to protect and connect at least 30 percent of land and sea for nature's recovery by 2030.

‘Our vision for a wilder Surrey is a future with abundant wildlife and nature recovery networks rich in biodiversity.’ We will realise this vision by creating bigger, better and more joined up areas of land for biodiversity benefit through direct conservation land management and key partnerships.

An integral part of our conservation management plans is our conservation grazing herd which, used alongside other habitat management activities, aims to increase biodiversity on a variety of sites across the county.

Working collaboratively with the Regional Conservation Managers, this role will prepare and implement the grazing programme across our own managed sites whilst also looking for opportunities to develop partnerships, community working and liaison with other landowners to inform and influence, increasing the potential biodiversity gains beyond our borders.

The successful candidate will need to be a strong, practical people and livestock manager who can demonstrate logical thinking, project management skills, passion for the joy of nature and determination to succeed.

You must have previous experience and an in depth understanding of conservation grazing and its implementation on publicly accessible sites matched with a personable and friendly approach and the ability to work with a wide range of people (and livestock).

The job will involve a mix of being outdoors, leading practical tasks or managing contractors throughout the year, occasional lone working, office work and working with partner organisations. A full driving licence is essential as our locations cannot easily be accessed by public transport.

The full job profile and detailed person specification plus the application form are on our website www.surreywildlifetrust.org

We are committed to having an inclusive and diverse workplace and encourage applications from backgrounds which may be underrepresented in our sector, including people from minority ethnic backgrounds and people with disabilities. 

We are committed to offering an interview to all candidates that meet the essential criteria for the post.  Please let us know if you require any adjustment to make our recruitment process more accessible; recruitment may be virtual using Zoom or Teams but is most likely to be in person at Bonhurst Farm in Bramley. Second interviews will be held at different sites within the county.

Please apply using the Application Form to Catherine Roberts, Catherine.roberts@surreywt.org.uk  by midday Thursday 9th September 2021.
