We are looking for a Conservation Work Officer to provide additional support, for a period of maternity cover until April 2025, to help us deliver the work of the award-winning Moors for the Future Partnership.
Working as part of a team you will develop and deliver creative land management solutions to affect landscape scale change. There will be desk-based and field work with the emphasis upon developing and delivering conservation projects. There will be a need to travel extensively throughout the South Pennines.
You will be computer literate, have knowledge of GIS systems and an HND in an environmental or related subject – or equivalent – with at least 2 years’ countryside management experience. You will need to be capable of leading on projects without close supervision, with experience of land management, preferably within the uplands. You will have great communication skills as your work will involve engaging with key stakeholders including partner organisations, land owners and land managers (such as farmers and gamekeepers).
In return, we can offer you the opportunity of making a real difference to the South Pennine uplands, working as part of a friendly and focused team. You will be based at the Moorland Centre, in the beautiful village of Edale, minutes from the Pennine Way.
