Conservation Manager

c.£31,000-£35,000 per annum dependent on experience

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

We are looking to recruit a Conservation Manager – Central Surrey, to handle challenging conservation delivery across a number of reserves and to drive plans forward by empowering the team, working with the wider Reserves Management department staff, prioritising effectively, responding to swiftly changing demands and dealing with complex issues.

Calcareous grassland and woodlands are the dominant habitat types in this area so good levels of experience and understanding of managing these habitat types would be advantageous. Candidates will need to be strong, practical people managers who can demonstrate logical thinking, project management skills, passion for the joy of nature and determination to succeed.

You must have previous experience of successfully working within the environmental sector matched with an out-going, personable and friendly approach, and the ability to work with a wide range of people.

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

If you believe you have the experience for the role and are able to fulfil the criteria outlined in the job profile, please complete an application form, or provide a covering letter and CV, and send it to james.herd@surreywt.org.uk by 5pm on Wednesday 14th February 2024. Interviews will be held the following week. The job profile and application form are available on our website www.surreywildlifetrust.org or by contacting James Herd.

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.  Please let us know if you require any adjustment to make our recruitment process more accessible.

‘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 relationship management.

Guided by a collaborative vision where we all play a part in connecting nature, we provide expert advice and guidance to landowners and managers, making sure the land we look after leads by example, while inspiring and educating people and organisations across the county on what they can do. By doing this we will create a Surrey that is full of diverse and abundant wildlife, where nature is at the heart of individual choices, corporate decisions, and local economic and policy making. One that helps tackle the ongoing climate emergency, while supporting the health and wellbeing of all who live here.
