If you are interested in working in a wildlife conservation environment in one of Englandís finest National Parks then this post offers an ideal opportunity to gain experience in this field.  


The Yorkshire Dales has some of the most breath-taking landscapes in Britain and contains internationally important upland habitats and species.  Our job as a National Park Authority is to maintain the natural beauty, wildlife and cultural heritage of the Dales and promote wider understanding and greater enjoyment of this irreplaceable treasure.


This is a permanent post that will provide mainly office-based, administrative support to the Authorityís Wildlife Conservation Team.  The role of the team is to conserve, enhance and raise awareness of the special biodiversity of the Yorkshire Dales National Park. 


You will be educated to at least Higher National Certificate/Diploma or equivalent in a discipline related to wildlife conservation and will preferably have some experience of working within a wildlife conservation environment.  The post has a strong administrative role and therefore requires good administrative skills including data collection, file maintenance and management and IT skills.  Knowledge of GIS, especially QGIS, would be an advantage.


If you feel as though you meet these requirements we would like to hear from you.


Application forms and further information are available on the Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority website.  They can also be obtained by e-mail from personnel@yorkshiredales.org.uk, or on 0300 456 0030.
