Wild Ingleborough is an ambitious, landscape-scale project, working with the community and aiming to combat the impacts of the climate crisis and aid nature’s recovery across this large upland area.

We are looking for an enthusiastic project assistant to help deliver a programme of work developed and managed by the Wild Ingleborough Partnership, made up of Natural England, University of Leeds, United Bank of Carbon, The Woodland Trust and the World Wide Fund for Nature.

We're looking for someone that can provide an excellent on the ground contribution and be an ambassador for both the Trust and the Wild Ingleborough Project. The work will involve restoring boundaries such as dry stone walls and top netting, tree planting and other rewilding measures across large areas of hillside, including limestone pavement. There are new access trails, gates, stiles and information signs to be built and you will assist other staff and contractors with the management of livestock. No two days are the same and the role will require a flexible and adapatable person that is ready to take on this exciting challenge. The successful candidate would be working alongside a supportive and knowledgable team and have the opportunity to contribute to a large-scale and ambitious project.

If you're looking for rewarding work in a beautiful environment, then this is the role for you.
