The North Wales Wildlife Trust is the region’s leading wildlife charity. We are one of 46 Wildlife Trusts across the whole of the UK, working for an environment rich in wildlife for everyone.

North Wales Wildlife Trust manages 10 nature reserves in Conwy and Gwynedd, with a variety of habitats including woodland, coastal, grassland, heathland and quarries. In total, we look after 35 sites, covering 770 hectares of land, which are some of the best examples of semi-natural habitats in North Wales, providing protection for rare and threatened species needing assistance to spread back into the wider countryside. They are also key places where people have the opportunity to enjoy and learn about a rich variety of habitats. They all rely on a strong team of staff and volunteers.

We are currently seeking a Reserves Officer for our Conwy and Gwynedd nature reserves to work as part of our reserve management team. The purpose of the role is to oversee and co-ordinate the management of our nature reserves in Conwy and Gwynedd, working closely with contractors and volunteers, and promoting the value of our sites and the Trust’s work to the public. Much of our reserve management work is funded through grants, and so the Reserves Officer will work with funders to fulfil our joint objectives. They will have a relevant degree, be a good advocate for wildlife conservation, with experience and knowledge of managing land for wildlife, practical estate management skills, safe working practices and wildlife survey techniques. Being able to communicate confidently in Welsh and English is required in several aspects of the post, and you should be willing to work with a range of people especially volunteers. Much of the work will be physically challenging and outdoors in all weathers.

This is a permanent position.

Closing date: 26th September 2022 (close of day)

Interviews to be held: 20th October 2022
