Proposed start date: 1st March 2024.
This post is fixed term for 18 – 21 months.

An exciting opportunity has arisen to work in the North Devon Coast National Landscape (designated an ‘Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty’) to identify, record and enhance the terrestrial species and habitats of North Devon. The ‘Finding Nature’s Footprints’ project is supported by The National Lottery Heritage Fund, and requires an enthusiastic, confident and organised person. You will be part of a small, collaborative team and have the opportunity to increase your ecological skills and knowledge, gain people management experience and make a difference for wildlife.

The overall project objective is to create a community-led Nature Recovery Plan for the North Devon Coast National Landscape alongside community actions for wildlife. You will work with the project partners, communities, landowners, schools, students, volunteers and agencies across North Devon and Torridge. Tasks include delivering a range of ecological surveys, providing practical conservation advice, managing a graduate intern and volunteers and organising training and citizen science activities/events.

The successful candidate will be educated to degree level in a relevant environmental discipline or have equivalent experience, with some knowledge of English habitats, species and biological data recording methods. A passion for working with the public, connecting people with nature and sharing knowledge with all ages is essential. Specialist training will be provided.

The appointee will be employed by project partner North Devon Voluntary Services and work from the NDCNL team’s office in Barnstaple.
