Are you passionate about woodland and about making a difference to the special wildlife that it supports? We have an opening for 16 months for a part time warden in the RSPB to support the delivery of an exciting new project for Celtic rainforest in Wales.


In partnership with other organisations, we have secured EU LIFE funding to help deliver conservation in targeted woodlands, including those of RSPBs spectacular Mawddach Valley reserve, near Dolgellau.

The reserve woodlands sit nestled within the Meirionnydd Oak Woods and Bat Sites Special Area of Conservation, and support a vast array of wildlife including rare lichens and bryophytes, populations of pied flycatcher and wood warbler, and quiet and elusive mammals like the dormouse.

The job will involve supporting the small team including the local lead warden managing the Mawddach reserve, a grazing officer and a project officer, to work with contractors to repair and install walling, fencing, cattle handling facilities, and to liaise with graziers to secure the appropriate grazing of the site. In addition, you will work with the team to carry out vital woodland management working including thinning and ride management to provide the right conditions for priority woodland wildlife such as lobarian lichens and woodland birds. 

You will work with local stakeholders to buy engagement and support for the reserve and to deliver results, including our local team of dedicated volunteers. Travel may be occasional required to work with the wider LIFE team and to support delivery of the project in other SACs as well. 


Closing date: 4 January 2019
Interview date: 18 January 2019
