Reference number: A5590219
Location: Glenmore / Strathspey
Salary starting at: 19,602 - 21,236 per annum
Hours: Full time
Contract: Until December 2023


Set in a vast landscape of ice-hewn mountains, spectacular pinewoods, tranquil lochs, and wild, rushing rivers, Cairngorms Connect is the largest habitat restoration partnership in Britain. Cairngorms Connect has bold plans to make this inspiring place better for wildlife, and better for those who take joy from the wildlife and beauty of this extraordinary place.


The project will expand the Caledonian pine forest to its natural limit, reinstate drained wetlands, naturalise rivers and restore huge tracts of peatland, to create an amazing place for nature. Alongside restoration management, the project will include a programme of monitoring and management trials, designed to measure rates of progress towards restoration objectives, and test alternative approaches to restoration management.


The Monitoring Officer will play an important role in delivering the programme of monitoring and management trials that supports restoration goals, as part of a core science team including science staff from the partner organisations. If you have the skills, experience and competencies to help deliver such a programme, we would love to hear from you.


This is a Partnership project involving Scottish Natural Heritage, Wildland Ltd, RSPB Scotland & Forest Enterprise Scotland with funding from The Endangered Landscape Programme and other partners.


Closing date: 28 February 2019
