Reference: A6640319
Location: Airds Moss and Barons Haugh
Salary: 22,073 to 23,912
Hours: Full time
Contract: Permanent


A unique opportunity to work on two interesting and differing sites.


Baron's Haugh, nestling between the town of Motherwell and the River Clyde, has habitat that comes in a range of forms including wetland, riverine, mature woodland and designed landscape but accessible to an urban audience of over 1 million people all within a 30 minute drive. At just over 100 hectares and due to its semi-urban location requires real hands-on management to ensure that our visitors can enjoy it at its very best. In addition maintenance and wildlife monitoring, the post holder will play an active part in engaging with a much wider audience.


Airds Moss, located within the Muirkirk and North Lowther Uplands SPA and an RSPB Priority Landscape, has been recently extended to over 700 hectares. The main habitat consists of blanket bog which has been undergoing an extensive restoration programme to reverse the effects of over 200 years of man's attempts to drain the bog and bring back the absent species. It is part of our Curlew Trial Management Project with a range of management interventions and monitoring being implemented.


You will

  • exhibit a high standard of visitor care and community involvement
  • provide a regular presence across both sites
  • develop and run a programme of information and interpretation provision
  • have good experience of implementing maintenance works, running projects
  • be able to undertake wildlife monitoring
  • be required to maintain the reserves to a high level


Experience of line managing staff and working with volunteers is essential.


Closing date: 19 April
