We need an experienced senior project manager to deliver a groundbreaking project which will achieve 100% favourable status of Natura 2000 European protected areas (Special Areas of Conservation and Special Protection Areas) on RSPB reserves across Scotland. This exciting project, involves 11 conservation management sub projects across 15 natura sites and 23 natura features ranging from the saltmarshes of the Cromarty and Solway to the montane willow scrub of the Cairngorms.

 

Do you have the organisation, communication and influencing skills to make this complex national project runs like clockwork? Can you pre-empt the risks that are involved and fulfill a solution and outcome focused team player role? If so you will have an important part to play in protecting our internationally important oakwoods, dunes, machair, pinewoods, fens and improving the conservation status of breeding Chough, Ringed Plover and Capercaillie and wintering populations of White-fronted Goose, Barnacle Goose and Bar-tailed Godwit.

 

You will also help facilitate outreach, media and training events to spread good conservation land management practice beyond reserves into Natura 2000 sites in the wider priority landscapes in which they sit, with the opportunity to extend this influence into other European countries. You will also play a key part in raising awareness of the conservation need of these international natural treasures amongst policy makers through an end of project conference.
