Salary: 17,826 pro rata plus 5% pension 

Closing date: Monday 11 March


Are you looking to develop your career in conservation?

Are you interested in working to secure the future for greater horseshoe bats in Devon?


This is a fantastic opportunity for a highly motivated individual to work within a broad partnership of conservation, community and protected landscape organisations on a national flagship project for a highly threatened species. You will make a significant contribution to the delivery of a fully integrated landscape scale nature conservation programme.  


Devon Wildlife Trust, on behalf of the Devon Greater Horseshoe Bat Partnership, secured funding in 2015 from The National Lottery Heritage Fund for the delivery of this project, which runs until October 2020. The partnership is seeking to recruit a survey assistant to help with the delivery of the Devon Bat Survey, to undertake botanical surveys and to assist with bat monitoring and reporting across the project area.


You will have a demonstrable enthusiasm for wildlife, with good knowledge of UK wildlife including bats. In addition, you will have knowledge of survey techniques (both botanical and for bats). Experience of using GIS mapping and use of R for statistical programming is desirable but not essential. Training on all aspects of the role will be provided to the successful candidate.


This post is being offered on a part-time (30 hours per week), fixed-term basis until the end of October 2020. The post will be based in Exeter with travel within Devon.


We can offer you good terms and conditions, flexible working arrangements and a great office environment. The successful candidate will be joining a team of committed, hardworking and friendly colleagues. This is a great opportunity to take your first step in your career within a leading Devon charity.
