If you would like to discuss this opportunity informally, please contact Jon Isherwood (WSBRC Manager) on 07788747074 or JonI@wiltshirewildlife.org.
The WSBRC (Wiltshire & Swindon Biological Records Centre) is seeking an enthusiastic and highly motivated individual to join our successful and ambitious team. This is an exciting opportunity to design and deliver a programme of wildlife surveys and monitoring work as part of the Cranborne Chase & Chalke Valley Landscape Partnership’s Nurturing Nature Project (www.cranbornechase.org.uk/chaseandchalke).
If you have already gained skills and experience in ecological surveying and monitoring and are looking for a role in which you will be able to really make a difference, then we would like to hear from you. The role will involve working with key partners, volunteers, farmers and landowners to design and deliver a programme of activities, surveys and monitoring work specifically focusing on key woodland and chalk grassland species across the Chase & Chalke landscape. You will allocate resources and coordinate specialist consultants and volunteers to complete the work and leave a legacy of baseline data and established and repeatable methodologies. This will support a wider programme of works designed to help halt and reverse the decline in species populations across this area of Cranborne Chase Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
You will be joining a dynamic team which sits within Wiltshire Wildlife Trust, a charity committed to nature’s recovery across Wiltshire, with over 40 nature reserves and 23,000 members. We deliver high profile, nationally important work.
