Do you love being outdoors? Would you like to be part of a dynamic team leading the way in peatland restoration? If the answer is ‘yes’, then we have an exciting opportunity for you.

Yorkshire Wildlife Trust is one of the UK’s fastest growing nature conservation organisations and seeks to appoint 4 x permanent and 3 x fixed-term Project Assistants to join the Peat Team. Yorkshire Peat Partnership (YPP) is a landscape scale peatland restoration partnership which delivers practical peatland restoration throughout Yorkshire.

The Project Assistant will support other team members with surveying damaged peatlands, preparing restoration plans and maps, monitoring restoration work, supporting UAV flights, supporting communications, website and administration tasks. The exact nature of each Assistant’s work programme will depend on the postholder’s own skills and aptitude.
