Voluntary Reserves Officers x8

A Voluntary Reserves Officer role is suitable for someone looking to begin a career in practical wildlife conservation. Successful candidates will volunteer with the Reserves team gaining experience in managing nature reserves.  This includes habitat management of grassland, wetland, woodland sites, and access maintenance. The majority of their time will be spent on gaining experience in the physical work involved in managing nature reserves; there will also be opportunities to work with and lead volunteer work parties and assist with surveying and monitoring. The Volunteer Reserves Officers will receive the necessary formal training and certification in first aid, use of brushcutters and chainsaws, as well as a programme of in-house training central to their roles. An ideal candidate would be able to commit to 3-5 days per week for 9-12 months. Applicants should be capable of using power tools and machinery and enjoy days of physical work outdoors in all weathers. Good team working skills and an ability to be self-motivated are essential. Some previous experience of practical conservation work would be an advantage but is not essential. Travel expenses are available. CVs without fully completed application forms will not be accepted.
