Assistant Warden
Reference: A0230419
Location: Lancashire
Salary: 19,602 to 21,236

Hours: Full time
Contract: Permanent


This is an exciting opportunity to join our small team managing the Ribble Estuary National Nature Reserve in a pioneering partnership with Natural England. The role is based at the RSPB Ribble Reserves office but includes time spent working from Natural England's NNR office.


In addition to the regular day to day maintenance tasks and wildlife monitoring, the post-holder will be expected to help develop our partnership with Natural England and assist with exciting grant-aided habitat improvement projects. The reserve management plan is in the process of renewal and you will be involved in shaping the new Joint NNR Partnership Management Plan.


You will be expected to deliver a high standard of visitor care and provide a regular presence across the sites, engendering a feeling of security and stewardship and spreading our conservation message to a wider audience. You will maintain the reserves to a high standard and you should have experience of implementing maintenance works and running small-scale projects and be able to undertake wildlife monitoring with a reasonable degree of competence. You may also have experience of tractor-driving and pest control. You will have a regular volunteer force to help you achieve all of this and experience of working with volunteers will therefore be a key requirement of this post.


The RSPB is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and vulnerable adults and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. This post is subject to the appropriate safeguarding checks upon appointment.


Closing date: 13 May 2019
