Do you have a passion for finding solutions that enable sustainable land management; delivering nature conservation at a landscape scale set within a productive and vibrant countryside? We are seeking a highly-motivated individual with energy, enthusiasm and initiative to coordinate our work with partners, land managers and other stakeholders across southern Scotland (specifically covering Dumfries & Galloway, Borders, South Lanarkshire, South Ayrshire and East Ayrshire).


We are looking for an individual who can communicate knowledgably to a range of people and organisations, both in written and spoken forums; someone who can persuade and inspire while remaining accurate and evidence-based, and who has a passion for finding solutions and identifying win-wins for nature and people.


You will have a good understanding of upland, wetland and/or coastal habitats and the species associated with them (especially waders and black grouse), as well as high levels of integrated conservation/land management knowledge, the ability to apply it appropriately and the skill to communicate it effectively. This knowledge and experience will enable an informed approach to support the improvement, restoration and creation of high quality habitat for priority species across connected landscapes.


You will be resilient, resourceful, adaptable and practically minded and capable of delivering work to a high standard. Strong organisational, project management, prioritisation and team building/working skills will be second nature to you. If you think you have the skills, experience and passion needed to take forward nature conservation in southern Scotland, then we'd love to hear from you.
