With responsibility for managing a Wildlife Ranger and local volunteers, you will undertake a variety of roles, including ornithological monitoring, education and awareness-raising, enforcement, designing solutions for disturbance hotspots, nest protection and control of pirri-pirri bur within dune grasslands. There will also be opportunities to develop habitat management and creation projects.

Effective public engagement is key to the success of this project and, as well as engaging with people on the coast, you will be responsible for developing a compelling social media presence, telling the fascinating story of coastal wildlife through the seasons and increasing public appreciation of and support for it.

Candidate Description
