We are looking for someone capable of leading our conservation work to deliver the greatest impact for nature.

The successful candidate will have an important external role, building positive relationships with partners and stakeholders so that RSPB's policies and messages are understood and furthered within relevant partnerships.


Essential qualities will therefore be leadership, the ability to prioritise, time management, communications skills and energy. Project Management skills and/or and understanding of site safeguard work would also be desirable for this role. A good understanding of the ecology and needs of priority species and habitats within the area is required. This is a wide-ranging role and a flexible attitude and approach will be essential.
